“Advanced Industrial Products (AIP), one of Australia’s leading national suppliers of industrial hoses, valves, fittings, and associated products, has been serving the mining and processing industry for over two decades,” says Troy Giggins, Category Manager for Industrial Hoses.
With a wide range of offerings and a commitment to quality and safety, AIP has become a trusted partner for mining supply companies across the country.
“One of the key uses of AIP hoses in the mining and processing industry is in fluid transfer applications, meanwhile valves are used to control the flow of materials through the hoses,” Troy highlights.
He continues, “They can be used to regulate the speed and volume of the materials, as well as to stop the flow altogether when necessary.”
“AIP offers a comprehensive range of hoses and valves for the mining industry, designed to withstand the challenging conditions and demanding requirements of this sector,” Troy highlights.
Troy highlights that AIP offers a range of valves for mining, including ball valves, gate valves, globe valves, and check valves, among others. “These valves are designed to withstand high pressure and are made from materials such as cast iron, steel, and stainless steel,” he says.
Troy also notes that AIP provides valves suitable for various applications, such as isolation, control, and regulation of fluid flow in pipelines.
With their own swaging and crimping machines, AIP is able to manufacture hose assemblies to customer specifications, ensuring that the hoses are suitable for the demanding environments of the mining industry.
Troy discusses one of the standouts of AIP is the ability to cater individually to each customer.
“A lot of people can do the same thing, but AIP has the option of manufacturing kits to the customer’s specifications,” says Troy. “These kits can include brass or polypropylene fittings, rubber or PVC hoses of various lengths, and spray nozzles.”
By working closely with customers to develop customised solutions, Troy discusses that AIP can provide a higher level of service and support, which can help to build long-term relationships and improve customer satisfaction.
“In addition to fluid transfer applications, AIP also offers fire suppression related products for the mining industry like fire hoses, and hose reels that are ready to go,” says Troy.
These products are crucial for ensuring the safety of mining operations, as fires can pose a significant risk in these environments.
Troy highlights that AIP conducts testing of hoses under conditions appropriate to their real-life use. After testing, AIP attaches a test plate to the hose with necessary information, demonstrating their transparent approach. This commitment to transparency helps build trust with customers and enables AIP to continuously improve their products and services based on feedback and insights gained from testing.
AIP’s hoses and valves are highly valued in the mining and processing industry, and their partnership with Motion brings added benefits to customers. “With customised solutions, rigorous testing, and high-quality components, AIP is a reliable choice for mining companies,” says Troy.
Leveraging over 20 years of experience and continuous improvement, AIP is a leading supplier of industrial hoses and valves in Australia. The seamless integration of products and services through their partnership with Motion ensures tailored solutions for enhanced customer satisfaction and operational efficiency in the mining and processing industry.
