Environmental considerations are critical in product and process development. To the greatest extent possible, our products should contribute to a reduction in the environmental impact of customer processes, and also be recyclable.
Many of Sandvik's products and technical solutions are designed to provide a long service life and better resource utilization and actively contribute to a better environment for customers and end users around the world. The demand for these products is affected positively by increased demand for energy savings and lower emissions.
Sandvik compressor management system (CMS)
Increase productivity and reduce environmental impact: The patented Sandvik compressor management system (CMS) tackles the two primary issues facing mines today:
- Increasing productivity
- Reducing environmental impact
Sandvik CMS provides a solution to the inherent inefficiencies of rotary blast hole drills that have a direct connection between the engine and compressor. It works by isolating the compressor and eliminating the need to maintain pressure when the machine is not drilling. This reduces the load on the engine, saving a significant amount of fuel and reducing wear and tear on the engine.
Electrical current draw reducer unit for drill rigs
One of the biggest value propositions for our new DD422i face drill rig is to provide more environmentally responsible drilling solutions that help to save energy and reduce underground emissions. The electrical current reducer unit is an option that we offer, along with the new drill rig, when there needs to be gains in drilling results despite limited electrical supply. Rather than drawing reactive power from the mine network, the Sandvik electrical current draw reducer unit fitted to a DD422i face drill rig provides this power element for all on-board drilling components.
Tubes in Safurex™ material for urea production
By using a high strength steel with higher corrosion resistance in a production plant for urea the energy consumption in the production process can be reduced by 7%, which corresponds to 265,000 tons of CO2 for the tube system's life time compared to a conventional stainless steel material.
Hot isostatic pressed fuel nozzles
We use the latest Hot Isostatic Pressed (HIP) techniques to manufacture 2-stroke marine diesel engine fuel nozzles that reduce emissions, improve fuel efficiency and extend component service life.
Pressurfect™ tube for gasoline direct injection (GDI)
Pressurfect high-standard lightweight seamless stainless tube is developed for gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology which requires double or more pressure than traditiional engines. Pressurfect tubes can withstand significantly higher pressures compared to tubes made from conventional steels. Combined with excellent resistance to corrosion and zero risk of cracking they enable reductions in fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Sandvik SAF 2707 HD™ hyper-duplex stainless steel
Sandvik SAF 2707 HD is a high-alloy duplex (austenitic-ferritic) stainless steel for service in highly corrosive conditions. The grade is particularly suited for use in aggressive acidic and chloride containing environments. Thus, it can provide environmental savings as well as financial advantages for end user.
Fibrothal™ heating modules
Fibrothal electric furnace heating modules are highly energy efficient, have a long service life and require minimal maintenance compared with conventional furnaces.
Secomax™ cutting tool grades and geometries
Secomax Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride (PCBN) is a range of high-performance cutting tool grades, which promote energy-efficient machining, reduce the need for cutting liquids and prolong insert service life, whilst significantly reducing production costs.
Underground drill rig Sandvik DD442i
Sandvik DD422i underground drill rig features a new drilling and boom control system and a wide range of automation levels. High-precision drilling combined with a wide range of automation options reduces unnecessary waste rock excavation, delivering increased productivity while reducing waste-handling costs.
The new Sandvik DD422i drill rig provides more environmentally responsible drilling solutions that help reduce energy losses and emissions caused by underground activity.
Mobile crushers and screens QE341
Sandvik mobile crushers and screens QE341 scalper can work alongside a primary crusher or as a standalone unit, offering ultimate flexibility. Tough materials can be handled effectively and the QE341 is able to deliver huge stockpiling capacity with uninhibited material flow, making this model one
of the most advanced and complete mobile scalpers yet designed.
