Mining solutions

We make groundbreaking work.*

Copper for circuitry. Coal for power. Cement for buildings. The demand for mining products is global and increasing. But declining ore grades are putting pressure on every aspect of mining operations. And over the past few decades, mines have faced higher breakeven points—while commodities have been affected by emerging trends in alternative technologies, such as shale gas.

Eaton’s forward-thinking energy management solutions give you the competitive advantage you need. With the expertise and innovation to ensure a reliable and efficient flow of power. Industry-first safety products to prevent arc flash events. And LED technology to virtually eliminate lighting maintenance in the harshest environments.

What’s trending

Understanding arc flash and how to keep your people protected
While electric shock hazards are well understood, the dangers of arc flashes are gaining more attention. Arc flash events can result in a violent explosion with heat energy exceeding 19,000°C. Today new standards, equipment and procedures are helping protect against this rapid energy release.

Find out why arc flashes occur and what you need to know to help protect your people and operation.
