New resources for rotating equipment in mining

IPS has always worked on mining motors. We now provide complete services for the rotating equipment connected to those motors.

Our rotating equipment experts develop engineered solutions for gearboxes, pumps, fans, blowers and compressors. IPS offers on-site testing, vibration analysis, balancing, alignment, and bearing replacement.

In-shop, we rebuild, recondition, and remanufacture, with skilled machinists who hold ultra-tight tolerances on fit and finish.

Engineering reliability for power distribution in mining

National Field Services, an IPS Company, adds to our single-source capabilities with power distribution. We provide electrical testing and maintenance services for circuit breakers, control parts, switchgear, and transformers.

National also handles power distribution equipment installation and commissioning.

Total maintenance solutions for mine transformers

IPS is a total maintenance solution provider for mines that own transformers. We improve system uptime and reliability with new and legacy units.

Our in-shop repair handles transformers up to 60 MVA auto/23k kV class. On site, we work on generator step-up transformers rated up to 345 kV and exceeding 1,000 MVA.

IPS distribution for mining

We offer multiple options when replacement is more cost-effective than service and repair. We replace AC & DC motors and generators from fractionals to 2,500HP and above, rotating equipment, and power distribution equipment.

National Switchgear, an IPS Company, is a major distributor and remanufacturer of power distribution equipment.
