Mining Investment in Australia

Mining in Western Australia is big business and accounts for a sizeable percent of the State’s and Australia’s income from exports alone. The state of WA facilitated over one hundred mining projects and created jobs for over one hundred thousand people in the industry. Mining has transformed the area into a hive of industry and the growth in population has led to increased investment in housing and infrastructure and consumer spending.Confidence.Just recently BHP announced  it was investing additional money into a current 3.2 billion project in the South Flank mine and this signals their confidence in the mining industry in this region. This additional influx of investment will have a knock-on effect in creating many more additional opportunities in the building industry, including opportunities for companies like RMEWA to gain new hire contracts for their massive range of excavators.More Jobs.The state is currently very optimistic about what lies ahead due to this inward investment by BHP and they have also pledged to invest in water and infrastructure projects to meet the demands of this massive increase in investment. Due to this upsurge in additional business, the area may fall short in its need for workers and so this will signal more investment in skills creation opportunities and the overall job market.The Knock On Effect.The capital investment in this mine and others will create a multiplier effect around the region and also further afield as more and more people and businesses set up in the area. This is a time of an exciting growth period in WA and Australia in general and many regions in WA will benefit from  increased inward investment.  This increase in investment can surely attract bigger population growth which will in turn lead to higher retail activities and many other related services.Out With The Old.One can only be impressed by the sheer size of this investment by BHP and other companies and this vast operation of the South Flank project for iron ore, is seen as having real potential to replace the quite old Yandi operation. Companies like Fluor have already been awarded lucrative contracts in their project and construction services and their president is equally optimistic about the mining industry at this current time.Safe Investment.While BHP has not received board approval for this huge project yet, it will be forthcoming and they mean to begin production in 2021 thus cementing the fact that the mining industry in Australia still offers an ongoing safe investment opportunity. Once South Flank goes ahead, it will become the biggest ore processing facility in the whole world and this will bring further attention to the mining industry here.A Sensible investment.Investing in mining in Australia continues to be attractive because of the generally fixed cost of production that occurs once a mine is up and running. The production costs don’t usually increase even though the price of the ore does. Therefore, increased prices in ore means increased profits. BHP and other companies throughout the mining sector will provide massive improvements in cost efficiency through improved technology which once again increases profits. There really never has been a better time to invest.

Our range of air treatment products

Compressed air is widely used in everyday life, both in the home and for industrial purposes. Many commercial and industrial companies rely on compressed air as the energy source that powers up pneumatically operated equipment and tools – food manufacturing companies that mix up granular products, aerate liquids and render meat products being just one example.Because compressed air is used for a wide variety of purposes, there are different quality standards of compressed air, with each being suitable for different functions. These quality standards, commonly referenced as ISO 8573-1:2010, are divided into six different classes or levels, which are determined by measuring three contaminants, namely oil content, water vapour and solid particles.Here at Cleveland Compressors, we have a range of products when it comes to air treatment. Knowing what you’re after in terms of compressed air quality, as well as the purpose of the equipment, are crucial in ensuring that you have the right air treatment product for your specific needs.Breathing air purifiersAs employers become increasingly aware of their responsibility to comply with International Breathing Air Standards, breathing air purifiers have become standard in some work environments where contaminants such as fumes, oil, vapours, gases, solid particles and micro-organisms are present. Our wide variety of air purification products range from simple respirators that offer basic protection against low levels of dust particles to self-contained breathing apparatus for highly contaminated environments.Compressed air dryersCompressed air purification equipment must deliver uncompromising performance and reliability, while also providing the right balance of air quality and low operation costs. Our complete range of compressed air dryers includes refrigerated air dryers, desiccant air dryers and membrane dryers that suit a multitude of purposes and uses.Compressed air filtrationClean compressed air is essential in such industries as food processing, electronics, health care, photography, dairy and instrumentation. To ensure that compressed air is free of both solid particulate contamination and liquid aerosols, coalescing filters are required. To meet our customers’ varied needs, Cleveland Compressors offers compressed air filtration products under the following categories:Coalescing filters (for oil, water, dust and vapour removal) Point-of-use adsorber filters (for vapour removal) High pressure filters Water separators Sterile air filters (for food-grade compressed air) Silicone free filters Vacuum filters Mist eliminators Filter-Regulator-Lubricator (FRL) combos Gas generatorsWe also provide a comprehensive range of on-site, on demand analytical and industrial gas generators and gas generation systems.

A basic overview of different types of compressed air quality

 Compressed air is widely used in everyday life, both in the home (e.g. aerosol cans) and for industrial purposes (food processing, electronics, health care, photography, dairy and instrumentation), so much so that consumers often don’t think twice about it. When people sit down to a meal, for instance, the last thing they think about is the quality of the compressed air that was used in the preparation and manufacture of their food. Little do they know that many food manufacturing companies would not be able to function or provide consumers with safe, contaminant-free products without the use of clean compressed air.From an industrial standpoint, compressed air is often the energy source that powers up pneumatically operated equipment and tools, including those that mix up granular products, aerate liquids and even render meat products. In addition, they are widely used to convey materials and protect equipment or personnel. It is important to note that not all compressed air is the same. The quality of compressed air is actually subject to quality standards, commonly referenced as ISO 8573-1:2010, and determined by measuring three contaminants:Oil content Water vapour Solid particlesAccording to this measure of quality, there are six different classes or levels of compressed air quality, depending on contaminant level and type.Contamination levels are obviously influenced by the type of air compressor that is used, along with the related compressed air filtration and compressed air dryer units. Typically, however, compressed air quality is divided into four groups based on usage, which are as follows:1. Breathing airThe most common applications for breathing air are found in hospitals or medical facilities, as well as for underwater activities. If you have ever been scuba diving, then you definitely understand the importance of having air that is safe to breathe, free of contaminants and that contains a certain amount of water vapour. On the ISO 8573.1 scale, this comes in at class 1 for contaminants or particles (i.e. there should be none of these present) but in classes 4 to 6 for water vapour.2. Process airWhen manufacturing a product that will be consumed by humans or animals, process air is often used in the production process. Not surprisingly, compressed air that meets the standard needs to have zero oil or particle contamination, so food manufacturing companies or even drug companies require their compressed air quality to meet ISO 8573.1 class 1 or 2.3. Power airUsually used in pneumatic pumps or equipment such as those used for sand blasting, for instance, the quality of compressed air used for these purposes tend to be a little lower than the first two types of compressed air mentioned above. For power air, oil droplets or water vapour might cause a bit of a nuisance, but it certainly isn’t life threatening. In order to not damage equipment and clog up filters, power air needs to meet class 4 or 5 of the compressed air quality standard.4. Instrument airUsed for pneumatic instrumentation purposes, the compressed air quality for instrument air needs to be higher than that of power air, and generally meets class 3 or 4 of the compressed air quality standard. This is not only to protect the equipment and instruments that it is being used for, but also to protect the quality of the finished product. Instrument air with a high level of contaminants could affect the quality of the product that it is being used on, such as in paint spraying, for example, or cause untimely instrumentation breakdowns, leading to lost revenue.
