Why Mining Companies Need the CTI-X7® Performance Standard

Mining companies are under pressure to increase efficiency and safety while reducing costs. The CTI-X7® performance standard provides the tools necessary to manage risk, reduce downtime, and improve performance. Upgrading to the CTI-X7® standard can help mining operations meet these challenges and improve their bottom line.

The Importance of Efficiency for Mining Operations

Mining is a critical sector for many countries and regions, providing essential resources and raw materials for numerous industries. The sector is also subject to stringent regulation, given mining operations’ potential environmental and social impacts. As a result, efficiency is critical for mining companies to remain competitive and profitable.

Ways to Stay Efficient

There are several ways in which mining operations can be made more efficient. One key area is the use of technology, which can help automate tasks and improve communication between different parts of the operation. Another critical factor is managing people and equipment, which needs to be optimized to minimize downtime and maximize productivity.

CTI-X7®: Improving Safety and Efficiency

The CTI-X7® Performance Standard was developed by Ceramic Technology, Inc. to improve safety, efficiency, and ROI (by reducing maintenance costs) in the mining industry. The standard focuses on high-performing equipment as a benchmark for new process facilities or plant expansions. Mining companies can also use our equipment in existing operations to improve maintenance procedures or replace operational equipment.

Mining companies that implement the CTI-X7® standard will be able to:

  • Operate their facilities with fewer safety incidents
  • Achieve a higher (5 to 20x) return on investment
  • Reduce shutdowns and downtimes
  • Save maintenance and labor costs
  • Meet production demands more efficiently
  • Curtail environmental impacts
