Power Distribution Equipment
Selection of your power systems provider is one of the most important aspects of any successful business. A proven track record of quality and reliability coupled with industry commitment is a must for any perspective supplier.
Becker/SMC has successfully provided thousands of power systems to the industry and has invested heavily through innovation of design. We recognize that up-front engineering decisions, along with continuous monitoring and predictive analysis from day 1 ensures greater system reliability.
Critical Power Systems (CPS)
When industrial processes go down profitability losses are enormous. These losses can represent hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars in lost revenue.
Surface mining is achieved by utilizing the some of the largest mobile land machines ever built, called dragline excavators. The common operation is to remove overburden above coal seams. The heavy equipment weighs around 13,000 tons and consists of a large bucket which suspends from a boom with wire ropes. The bucket is maneuvered by an operator which controls the hoist rope, powered by large diesel or electric motors.
The Switch Houses are designed of up to 27KV and 1200 Amps.
- Complies with MSHA and CSA
Junction and Splice Boxes
Becker Mining America’s High Voltage Junction Box is intended for use to splice up to 35kV cable. It is particularly useful in surface and underground mining for the repair of damaged cable and cable length extension.

Equipment is custom built to the most challenging of specifications, tailored specially to customer’s needs and requirements. In addition to new equipment, Becker Mining America understands that funding for capital equipment may have barriers due to the ever changing economy. In this case, we are able to offer customers the option of rebuilding and/or modifying their existing equipment at substantial cost savings, without sacrificing functionality, safety, and integrity to their operations.
Metal Enclosed Capacitor Banks: Power Factor Correction - Assists in reducing your electric bill, increase efficiency, and reduce voltage drop.
A capacitor bank is a group of several identical capacitors interconnected in parallel or in series with one another. These groups of capacitors are typically used to correct or counteract undesirable characteristics, such as power factor lag or phase shifts inherent in alternating current (AC) electrical power supplies. Capacitor banks may also be used in direct current (DC) power supplies to increase stored energy and improve the ripple current capacity of the power supply.
