Industrial Minerals

For the industrial minerals market, Joy Global offers a full range of entry development equipment, including heavy-duty continuous miners, continuous and batch haulage systems, and a wide range of feeder breakers.

Our continuous miners include the 12HM series; within this series, the 12HM46 is the largest and most powerful drum-type continuous miner manufactured. It utilizes our proven continuous miner components, but is designed specifically for industrial applications, including trona, gypsum, potash, and salt.

Each continuous miner uses Joy Global’s multi-motor concept, with outboard access to motors, gearcases, controllers, and other major components, making it easier for troubleshooting and maintenance. The use of individual motors for the cutter, traction, gathering, and hydraulic system permits quick and easy service, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
