Industrial minerals are naturally occurring compounds that are mined and used as they are with minimal processing or beneficiation (activating). Today minerals have a bewildering array of commercial and industrial uses. After mining, the most important next steps for processing are crushing and screening the mineral to a useful size for the application, for export, or for further refining and processing for the Chemical Industries, which puts J&H right in the middle. J&H machines are typically fabricated from carbon steel for durability and affordability. Where needed, any J&H products can be manufactured from stainless steel to maintain the purity of chemical products and corrosion resistance. Common minerals being processed by J&H equipment are bentonite, industrial sand and roofing granules, salts, potash and other minerals used in the fertilizer industry. The simple and efficient screens along with J&H’s ability to provide bucket elevators, lump breakers, feeders, and diverter valves gives commercial providers of mineral products practically a one stop location for all of their processing equipment needs.
