Backed by a world-leading range of specialised mineral processing equipment, Multotec provides complete life-of-plant technical services aimed at increasing metallurgical efficiency to optimise your plant throughput.
We assist our customers not just in meeting their demands for products and equipment, but by optimising the life and efficiency of these products to optimise the entire supply chain for our customers. Through holistic plant evaluation, sampling and testing, optimising flow sheets and looking in detail at any plant-wide processing problems, we are able to offer solutions that offer a direct improvement to the process, with significant tangible impacts on your bottom line.
Our support structures include, engineering services and after-sales services, as well as product performance monitoring and technical support.
Reducing downtime saves your plant vast amounts of money. Multotec understands this, and, through our flexible and agile global network, ensures we respond to your requirements with maximum speed and efficiency. In most locations, we can respond to customer requests in under 4 hours.
Some of the challenges minerals processing plants face include the high cost of replacing capital equipment, the labour requirements in changing out heavy equipment, such as a DMS cyclone, and production downtime while staff have to comply with safety regulations while equipment is being replaced. Multotec strives to be a plug-and-play solutions provider, providing maintenance and delivery of high-quality equipment through your local branch.
Multotec is constantly researching, developing and testing new innovations and solutions for the challenges our customers across the world face in processing more efficiently.
Our investments in R & D are geared towards 4 key optimisation areas: the need for high recovery and yields, for high levels of product consistency and reliability, for lower lifecycle costs and the ability to develop new products on behalf of our customers.
