The mining industry in Australia produces tons of dust and residue on a daily basis. This results in the lowered quality of air and working conditions for miners and other staff. It requires efficient and regular cleaning to ensure that the industries continue to operate safely. Mining cleaning with the help of highly efficient tools, such as a mine roadway sweeper and mining dust sweeper, is essential to ensure that the premises stay dust-free at all times and meets the health and labour standards set by the industry authorities.

We provide an initial consultation to all our clients to understand their needs in order to figure out the right solution for the needs of their specific mining facility. Our ASC Eureka M1 sweeper is one of the top choices for mining facility cleaning. This high-tech product offers an effective solution for the elimination of dust particles with proven efficiency of 100%.

The ASC Eureka M1 Sweeper is the perfect solution for mine industry cleaning during all four seasons. Please have a look at our mining cleaning case study materials to learn how mining and mineral businesses such as Tegra Australia AC Hargreaves, Advanced Engineering Group, Boral Fused Materials, and many more use ASC sweepers to get rid of the dust, dirt, debris, and trash that accumulates on-site during regular mining operations.
