Demand the Best: Mesabi® Heat Exchangers, Radiators, and Coolers for Mining Applications

Copper mines, iron ore mines, coal mines, gold mines, aggregate quarries – at L&M Radiator, we’ve spent the better part of our 60+ years in business serving the mining industry with customized heat exchanger solutions that keeps equipment running, reduce downtime, and reduces costs.

Founded on Minnesota’s legendary Mesabi Iron Range, at L&M Radiator, we get mining. Over the years, as our reputation has grown, we’ve supplied mining operations all over the world – mines located at 14,000 feet in Latin America and mines located underground in Australia, and everything in between. Our Mesabi® heat exchangers are used on nearly every continent in the hottest, wettest, driest and coldest conditions on our planet.

What makes Mesabi heat exchangers different from our competitors? Besides building heat exchangers that can withstand the most challenging, most brutal operating conditions on our planet, we do two other things exceptionally well – 1.) we create customized solutions to meet the exact needs of our customers, and 2.) we intentionally build our heat exchangers to minimize downtime by making them easy to repair or maintain in the field.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in working with hundreds of mines over the years, downtime is the killer of a mine’s profits. Our engineers understand that better than anyone, and that’s why they’re continuously innovating new ways to reduce downtime for our mining customers.

We work with OEMs to design heat exchangers that help their machines work more reliably. In fact, many of our heat exchangers come standard on some of the most relied-upon heavy-duty mining equipment in use today.
