Mining and Minerals

mining,-heavy-metals,-tailing-pondWe have unmatched design intelligence that can provide product development and support.  At Beetle Composites we can create new products as well as assist you with incremental improvements. Regardless of whether you are in extraction or processing of basic metals and minerals such as zinc, manganese carbonate, cobalt, copper, and nickel—FRP products are the appropriate choice.

FRP has a distinct advantage over metal alloys and rubber-lined steel with lower installation costs, reduced maintenance, and long service life proven with over 20 yrs of successful operating experience at many plants/facilities around the world.  More importantly, FRP is recognized as having superior corrosion resistance, when compared to specialty alloy metals, in aggressive hydrometallurgical environments.


Mining-and-MineralsIn metal extraction and refining processes, FRP is typically used for pipes, tanks, absorption towers, ductwork, solvent extraction vessels, and electrowinning cells. With the incorporation of the proper filler, FRP piping can provide remarkable durability and corrosion resistance in abrasive slurry piping.  Furthermore, abrasion resistant FRP piping has proven to last longer and require considerably maintenance than rubber-lined steel.

Our strengths are inherent in our experience; comprehensive knowledge of composites and our precision capabilities.  We will design, manufacture and build for your mining and mineral needs.  Our specialized resins are perfect for chemical and metal processing (i.e. ion exchange, metal chelation, solvent extraction etc.), leach storage and transfer, residue treatment, rich electrolyte storage and handling, high temperature, and washdown applications—to name a few.

When you need a product that will withstand acids, bases, and organic compounds our FRP is the right choice. Composite products are cost-effective; they have reduced maintenance costs and longer service life, when compared with expensive metal alloys. When you need a product that is corrosion or abrasion resistant, anti-static, high strength to weight ratio; something with integrity that won’t deteriorate- we’ll provide a custom FRP solution.



We have experience that runs deep.  We’ve been around for over 50 years and in that time we’ve demonstrated our commitment to engineering superior composite products for a wide range of uses, including many in the mining and mineral industry.  Whatever your need, our streamlined in-house design and manufacturing capabilities will enhance your product and improve your competitive edge.
