Within mining operations, winders are instrumental in vertical transportation, ensuring safe and efficient transport of people and tools in the mine shafts. Maintaining the hydraulic oil that regulates the winder brakes can pose a challenge. Leaks can lead to a significant loss of oil and jeopardise operations.

WIKA provides innovative solutions to such challenges, like their Float Level Switch, which effectively detects oil loss and automatically triggers the shutdown of pumps once a certain threshold is reached.

This technology minimises the risk of losing substantial amounts of hydraulic oil, promoting operational continuity and safety.
