Our Capabilities that Serve the Mining Industry
On-Site Predictive Maintenance
It is incredibly important for a company like ours to provide comprehensive on-site services, especially as it concerns mining projects. Seeking to provide our customers with the best possible experience, K&N performs all forms of predictive maintenance on a quarterly schedule for this industry.
Shaft vibration analysis, in particular, is the key technology for mining-related projects—by collecting data to diagnose mechanical and electrical issues before they happen, unscheduled outages and failures are greatly reduced. Furthermore, laser alignment is also used to eliminate unwanted vibrations, shaft flex, and premature bearing failure, and explosion proof smart sensors are implemented for continuous measurement and monitoring of vibration and temperatures to predict and avoid breakdowns.
UL 508A Certified Panel Shop
K&N is proud to serve our customers with the use of a UL 508A certified panel shop. Our team follows the accreditation program closely to ensure that we continually meet the industry standards for custom design of control panels, especially for the mining industry.
Repair and Remanufacturing of Motors & Pumps
Let’s talk about motors and UL motor repair. From small centrifugals to giant turbines, K&N has the unique ability to repair the pump equipment that keeps the mining industry operating efficiently. Additionally, our team can also balance equipment such as fans.
