Mining & Oilsands

Ethical Oilsands mining, SAG-D production and related equipment cleaning requires unique “green” chemistry and must meet the highest EH&S standards. Products must also be able to perform under the toughest conditions. Guardian has developed the industry leading products specifically to meet those demands and client applications.

Traxol EP patented programs were designed specifically for the mining industry to clean sag, rod, and ball mill gears. Traxol EP is also able to clean draglines prior to non-destructive testing. We have expanded our mining specific products to include: organic and specialty degreasers, foam and high pressure applied wash bay products, heavy haul equipment emulsion cleaners, process water and wastewater treatment, and many other related products. We currently export these products around the world through our distributor network and direct to end user.

Guardian is extensively involved in the coal mining industry and provides technologies for coal coatings, side rail car release agents, process chemistry, and dust and fly-ash control.

With the TRAXOL EP® Gear Cleaning Program, procedures that used to take days to complete can now be completed within hours. While implementing our patented "Clean-On-The-Fly" process, gears are safe from damage due to our specifically designed cleaner, TRAXOL EP. As a result gears are fully cleaned and ready for follow up work.

Heavy equipment cleaning, large washbay technologies, recycle water systems, wastewater treatment, boiler, cooling, and process water treatment, mechanical maintenance shop chemicals, metal preparation and electric motor cleaning are some of the areas we specialize and focus our products and services on. Guardian's success has been to provide the ultimate in safety and performance, regardless of the toughest deposit and field conditions.

Guardian chemicals manufactures rail car release agents, CoalCoat top load coatings, and process dust suppressants and Fly-Ash crusting agents for use even in the harshest Canadian winters. These products are formulated for environmentally sensitive areas and exceed all toxicity and industry EH&S requirements.

TRAXOL EP, along with Hi-TRAX, MAXSOL HF, and the revolutionary BREAKAWAY offer our mining and oilsands customers a variety of chemical choices for cleaning and complete degreasing of mining shovels, haul trucks and related equipment.
