Ingersoll, ON – SIGMA Air Conditioning, a world leader in specialized air conditioning equipment, recently selected Hammond Air Conditioning to distribute its products in Eastern Canada. Hammond, based in Ingersoll, Ontario, now provides sales, service and parts to customers in the mining industry throughout Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland.

“We chose Hammond to represent us because it is an established, specialty air conditioning company with a strong reputation for service and customer satisfaction,” says Anthony Fry, MID Product Manager, SIGMA Air Conditioning.

“It’s a perfect partnership,” says Deb Lemon, Vice President of Operations at Hammond. “We have expertise installing AC systems for hydraulic power shovels, mobile drills, trucks, loaders and other specialized heavy equipment. We’re excited to add the SIGMA line-up of integrated, aftermarket air conditioning systems to our shelf.”

Hammond has more than 35 years of experience in engineering, manufacturing and servicing air conditioning systems for over 1200 different types of work vehicles, including heavy mining and construction equipment. As a SIGMA dealer, Hammond will stock SIGMA construction and mining products. Hammond offers same-day parts delivery, and Hammond’s online store makes it easy for customers anywhere in Canada to shop for AC systems and parts.

“The Canadian mining industry is known for its safety and sustainability, and SIGMA products will build on that reputation,” says Lemon. Like Hammond, the Australian-based SIGMA has decades of experience in AC manufacturing, including tackling the particular challenges of the mining industry. In extreme mining applications, AC manufacturers must contend with dust-saturated environments, heavy shock and vibration loads as well as extreme ambient temperatures. SIGMA has developed specialized filtration equipment to meet health and safety requirements while increasing operator comfort. Its technology has been tested to work in extreme conditions both above and below ground.

Another SIGMA innovation, the Anti-Idle system, is designed as a retrofit solution for mining equipment such as blasthole drills, excavators and draglines. The Anti-Idle system keeps operators comfortable, even when the machine is not running. Reduced idle time helps reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions while extending machine service intervals. The system is powered by the diesel engine while the machine is in operation. When the machine is shut off, the Anti-Idle system automatically switches to a DC compressor. When the machine is switched back on, the AC reverts back to the engine-driven compressor and uses an alternator to recharge the battery.

“The innovative SIGMA products will help our customers in the mining industry reduce their fuel costs while keeping their operators comfortable, safe and productive,” says Lemon. “We’re proud to be a SIGMA distributor.”
