Spillages around conveyors, spillages in general and the recovery of high value materials; these are all issues that plague many production and operation managers in the mining and processing industry.

Hencon Vacuum Technologies designs, manufactures, supplies and supports a complete range of heavy-duty vacuum systems for industrial, plant and mining applications. It offers the quickest, most efficient and safest means of recovering a variety of both wet and dry material, such as cement, gold ore fines, platinum, iron ore, rock phosphate, coal and much more.

Vacuum systems for gold, platinum, nickel and copper mining

Our heavy-duty vacuum systems can be custom-built to meet the exact requirements of clients to handle the toughest mining environments in the gold, platinum, nickel, copper and other similar industries.

These vacuum systems are proven to be highly efficient in the recovery of high-grade material that is generally very fine and cannot be collected and transported with conventional equipment.

Industrial and central vacuum equipment for mining

We make vacuum units for material spillage removal and recovery in industrial processing plants. These systems handle materials such as gold, alumina, cement, platinum, ferrochrome, iron ore and others, and are very effective at cleaning spillage material around and especially under conveyor belts and in areas around the processing plants where conventional equipment cannot be used and manual labour is the only alternative.

Central vacuum systems allow for a more fixed and customised solution to be offered and have the benefit of being easy-to-use. They become an integral, and sometimes invaluable, part of the plant or mine in the area that they are installed.

Vacuum trucks for cleaning contractors

Vacuum trucks allow complete independence and greater flexibility due to the complete mobility that they offer. They are ideal for the cleaning contractor or plant that needs a mobile vacuum to cover several areas.

These systems can either be truck-mounted or combination-towed systems where the collector tank is built onto the truck and the trailer-mounted vacuum unit is towed behind the truck.

Conveyor belt return side vacuum cleaners

Conveyor belt return side vacuum cleaners are stationary. They are permanent installations that have a custom-built nozzle unit that attaches to the bottom of a conveyor belt and in most cases is able to remove between 85% and 95% of the material that stays on the return side of the belt before it can cause more spillages.

Vacuums and accessories for mining applications

We also offer smaller vacuums for light plant cleaning, as well as dedicated belt cleaning systems and robotic mechanised hose control for access to hazardous and confined areas.

A wide range of accessories are also available.

Custom-built vacuum systems for the mining industry

We have the experience and know-how to design and manufacture custom systems to meet the stringent requirements of our clients.

Standard vacuum machines are available in an electric range with power output of 15kw right up to 110kw, as well as diesel with power outputs of 37kw up to 230kw.
