Argento Mining distribute and become the main partner in PEXGOL™ pipes that have been installed in mines across the globe function more efficiently and reliably than any other types of pipe systems in conventional use.
In the traditional mining industry large sums of money are invested in the maintenance and endless replacement of damaged pipes. Ordinary pipes become worn-out due to abrasion and corrosion, sometimes shortly after installation. Since mining engineers have been introduced to the advantages of PEXGOL pipes – which are extremely reliable and provide long-term solutions for the well-known wear-out problem of slurry pipelines – the demands for installation or replacement of traditional pipes with PEXGOL pipes are continuously increasing.
During the past decade, copper, gold and salt mines in South Africa, Chile and Colombia have replaced their piping systems with PEXGOL pipes. These pipes are revolutionizing the way engineers now calculate the time and money invested for maintenance in mines.
