Benefits Of Using Propane For Mining

Propane is the affordable, safe and high-performing fuel source that is essential in Canadian mining operations. On-site, off-grid power generation can keep operations running smoothly and eliminate downtime. Propane is also incredibly versatile and can be used in every phase of your mining operation. As experts in the industry, we can make recommendations for tanks sizes and propane uses, including plans to increase the overall efficiency and functionality of the site.

Propane-Powered Applications

Mine-Shaft
Heating

Heating mine shafts through portable or permanent space heaters and other heating appliances powered by propane is a safe alternative to other options. Not only are propane-emissions safe, but it is also a stable and reliable fuel source.

Power Generation

Whether you’re running equipment or water heaters, propane-powered generators are an excellent item to keep on hand for both primary and backup power uses.

Mineral Refining

Mineral refining is a complicated process that requires a robust and powerful fuel source. Propane is perfect for the job because of its versatility and affordability.

Vehicles

Light and medium-duty vehicles on mining sites can easily be converted into auto propane cars and trucks. Converting your fleet saves money over time as propane is a more affordable fuel source. Propane-powered vehicles are also better for the environment than diesel and gasoline.

Switching To Propane

Propane Is...

Propane costs significantly less than diesel and also minimizes maintenance costs. Because propane burns cleaner and more efficiently, there is less wear and tear on equipment.

Diesel produces high levels of Greenhouse Gas Emissions while propane minimizes environmental impact. Sulphur content, a main culprit for producing acid rain, is high in diesel and low in propane.

Propane practically eliminates the chances of soil contamination due to its clean burning properties. As a liquid, diesel presents a higher risk of damaging spills and soil contamination.

Propane functions optimally in all climates, offering superior engine performance and minimizing costly downtime. Propane functions where and when other fuels do not.
