Suspension and Shovel Components for the Mining Industry

1200 East State Street, Geneva, IL 60134, United States of America



Miner Elastomer Products is a manufacturer of high-quality suspension and shovel components for the mining industry. These haul truck suspensions and shovel components use TecsPak® technology as the basis for significant improvement in product lifecycle and lower cost of operation. TecsPak is a proven energy-absorbing material designed to meet demanding performance requirements in an array of applications.

Mining conveyor idler rollers

EU-ROLLERS™ conveyor idler rollers are more cost effective, durable, and energy efficient than traditional conveyor belt rollers.  Their superior performance means reduced downtime due to failure and cost savings over the life of the conveyor.  EU-ROLLERS™ use quality bearings chosen to meet the requirements of any loading or transporting application. In order to protect and provide longevity for the bearings EU-ROLLER™ use a proven patented bearing cap and seal design which contains special seals.

EU-ROLLERS™ can be purchased in three different models (standard, impact and picking idler).  Each of these different models have unique properties that will help optimize your conveyor application.  For example the Standard and Anti-Seize rollers offer the following benefits for your conveyor applications:

  • High resistance to wear
  • No damage to the belt
  • Non-corrosive roller body
  • Very low friction
  • Long bearing life
  • Lesser mass of the roller
  • Saving on start-up costs
  • Very low noise pollution
  • Shock resistant bearing cover
  • Eco-friendly

Suspensions and shovel components for energy-absorption problems

Miner Elastomer Products has the manufacturing capabilities to develop suspensions and shovel components to customer specification or provide off-the-shelf products.

TecsPak suspensions and shovel components consistently solve energy absorption problems where other materials fail. Understanding customer requirements for lower cost of operation and improved product quality are the reason TecsPak suspensions and shovel components were developed.

Mining haul truck suspensions

Miner Elastomer Products has a selection of TecsPak haul truck suspensions available for various model trucks. TecsPak suspensions are built to replace the oil and nitrogen OEM suspensions. The TecsPak suspensions provide a superior ride in both the loaded and unloaded condition. These suspensions are designed to handle specific loads in all types of environment.

TecsPak suspensions are virtually maintenance free. There is no oil or nitrogen to refill and no seals to leak and replace, significantly reducing downtime and maintenance cost per hour of operation. Installation is as simple as removing the OE oil, nitrogen suspension and installing the TecsPak suspension.

All Miner Elastomer suspensions are designed to accept the OE load monitoring system already on the truck. No modification to the truck is necessary and standard off-the-shelf bearings are used in all TecsPak suspensions.

Heavy-duty shovel components for mining equipment

Miner Elastomer Products offers several heavy-duty TecsPak bucket door components that improve performance, reduce downtime and increase shovel output. TecsPak shovel components are designed to absorb maximum load capacities while reducing wear on steel components.

Shovel components consist of snubbers to replace steel bellville washers, bucket door bumpers to prevent steel-on-steel contact of the bucket door, latch bar bumpers, wear pads and boom bumper assemblies to prevent bucket damage to the main boom.

All Miner Elastomer Products heavy-duty shovel components are designed to reduce down time, increase productivity and lower operating cost.

Sucker rod shock absorbers

Miner Elastomer Products TecsPak sucker rod shock absorption solutions to enable oil pumping units to produce more oil while reducing the kilowatt requirements and easing the amp spikes when the weight changes velocity.

In addition, TecsPak sucker rod shock absorbers reduce the stresses on the rod string preventing separation and breakage. They are designed to absorb shock as the sucker rod is raised and lowered. The sucker rod cushions are mounted on top of the pumping unit’s hanger bar.

TecsPak sucker rod sucker rod cushions are easily installed and require no maintenance, reducing downtime and increased productivity.

Gas well springs

Miner Elastomer Products gas well springs offer improved performance over the traditional steel coil springs found in most gas well lubricators. TecsPak gas well springs are not affected by well contaminants that are often found in deep gas wells.

Gas well springs are incorporated in the lubricator as a manual catcher mechanism, along with a bumper pad to absorb the shock of the plunger at the surface in the event it surfaces at a high velocity.

Traditional steel coil springs would often crack or chip leaving steel fragments in the well head, causing the well to be shut down for repairs and replacement of the spring. TecsPak gas well springs will not break or chip, extending the life of the well spring and increasing production.

Mining truck wheel chocks

Miner Elastomer Products mining truck wheel chocks are designed for the demanding requirements of the mining industry. Currently two sizes of wheel chocks are available with more under development.

The TecsPak wheel chocks are designed for over-the-road trucks and large mining haul trucks. Tough TecsPak wheel chocks are virtually indestructible and suited for all types of environments. All TecsPak wheel chocks are made from high-visibility orange TecsPak material.

The large wheel chock line is designed for mining haul truck applications. For 240t and larger haul trucks, a minimum of four wheel chocks are recommended.  These chocks are strong, lightweight and crush-resistant. Individual chocks weigh in about 30lb and will not damage tires even if they are run over.

Note: TecsPak is the registered trade mark of Miner Enterprises.
