Sxew/Plant

Open Loop Energy provides services for processing plants that operate autoclaves, roasters, feeders, conveyors, crushers, mills, and flotation tanks. Many customers have used the company’s hydraulic sales and repairs for improvements and cost savings in their processing systems. As in all of our company’s service areas we partner with plant operations personnel to solve problems with collaborative ideas and designs. 

INNOVATIONS; EXTENDING CHAIN LIFE

A mining partner asked Open Loop Energy to extend the chain life of their copper production line. The company improved the OEM design and more than doubled the customers chain life. Prior to this innovation individual chain links could not be repaired thus required entire sections of chain to be replaced. Now the customer can replace individual links with repairable pieces.
