                  Mining in the Extreme North – Freeze Protection Mining in the Extreme North – Freeze Protection
                  Urecon specializes in freeze protection solutions for mining operations in the far north. For decades we’ve been recognized as leaders in design and supply of heat traced plastic (HDPE) piping systems – intended specifically for extreme cold temperature. Many of these remote sites are accessible only by winter roads. Far beyond access to hydro lines, northern mines generate their own electricity using trucked in diesel fuel. Urecon assists in optimizing complete systems to best deliver freeze protected piping - without excess electrical power consumption from heat tracing demands.
