Exhausts & Mufflers



Liebherr is a leading original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and supplier of components and Liebherr exhaust systems for the mining industry. With its innovative technology and comprehensive expertise, Liebherr continues to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the industry. Minetek have a long-standing relationship with Liebherr providing sound attenuation solutions across their entire range of mining machinery to help reduce machine noise levels. Our acoustically engineered and custom-designed Liebherr exhausts are designed to reduce machine noise levels.


Liebherr Mufflers 


Minetek understands the importance of high-quality equipment and the impact that machinery noise has on production. That is why we offer extensive machinery noise reduction solutions across a range of OEM models, including Liebherr Caterpillar, Hitachi and Komatsu exhaust systems. Our engineered sound solutions are manufactured with precision, state-of-the-art processes, and quality checked for performance whilst reducing machine noise levels. Helping mine sites operate efficiently without exceeding or breaching regulatory noise levels and restrictions.

Each element of Minetek’s Liebherr exhausts is designed specifically for that machine with sound combinations that work effectively with the acoustic frequency. It is the mixing and matching of these elements, determined by our acoustic engineers that underpin the engineering of Minetek’s Liebherr muffler design. With cutting-edge technology and simulation programming, we can enable Liebherr exhausts to target specific frequencies, including balancing and noise-cancelling.


Liebherr Exhausts & Mining Machinery  


The mining industry is one of the most challenging environments imaginable. Many work sites are remote, conditions are extreme, and the stakes are high – lives depend on the successful operation of complex machinery. In such an environment, it is essential to partner with a company with a proven record of accomplishment of safety, reliability, and innovation.  

Minetek works with OEMs like Liebherr to produce the world’s quietest and most efficient mining equipment. With over 1,500+ mining machines attenuated, Minetek’s sound attenuation solutions can help reduce noise levels by up to 12 dBA, engineered to maintain productivity and minimise the impact on operators and maintenance teams. Our quality, reliability and innovative sound reduction technologies have been proven repeatedly in some of the most challenging conditions. When you partner with Minetek you can be confident that you are receiving the best possible support for reducing noise levels at your mining operation. 

We work with OEM’s such as Caterpillar to produce the world’s quietest and most efficient mining machinery. With over 1500+ machines attenuated our sound attenuation solutions can help reduce noise levels by up to 12dBA. Minetek’s modular sound suppression kits are available for Caterpillar mining trucks, excavators, dozers, loaders and drills, with certified install teams available globally.

I have used these evaporators very successfully at mine sites where I have worked in the past. They are an extremely reliable unit and worked above expectations in the environment where we had them set up. As for spray drift/mist this can be controlled by the weather monitoring systems that are available with the units. Additionally, how you set them up and the amount of fall you can achieve allows for more moisture to be stripped from the droplets]will greatly benefit your overall evaporation rates.

After investigating a raft of different methods from sprinkler systems through to desalination systems (too costly for little benefit) we decided on the MINETEK WATER units. The evaporators were easy to install and once activated ran trouble free. We were very happy with the service from MINETEK and the reliability of the system.

Kipoi have successfully utilized MINETEK WATER evaporators on our process water pond to remove mine water and has contributed to help with our water balance. We are currently in the process of moving these units to where the catchment area is larger giving us better utilization of the evaporators.
