One feels pretty small next to one of the enormous mining excavators made by the Russian company IZ-Kartex. The gigantic machines are used in surface mining to extract valuable minerals from the ground, digging with shovels that have a capacity of up to 15 cubic meters. Air conditioners from Dokon cool the cabins of the yellow behemoths so their drivers don’t have to work up a sweat during a hard day’s work.
Centrifugal fans from ebm-papst convey the air from the air conditioner to the operator. Their reliability and durability contribute to one of the most important aspects of the excavators: their low life-cycle costs.
