Get to know some of our featured projects that uniquely optimised the processing power of our customers’ plants.
A phosphate mine in Morocco is benefitting from Multotec’s scrubber liners expertise and extensive experience.
The mine had been facing a serious challenge, where the plant’s existing head plates were wearing out at double the rate of the shell plates. In turn, the plant required excessive maintenance shutdowns during the life of the liners and were paying excessive associated extra costs.
With an installation of Multotec’s scrubber liners, measuring at 6.5 metres in diameter and 11 metres in length, the plant was optimised through increased uptime and reduced costs.
Since installation, the liners have been performing in line with the customer’s expectations and are expected to have a lifespan of over five years.
Multotec has branches, representatives and offices in 100 countries across the world. Using lessons and customer input from around the world, we develop world-class and customised solutions for our customers’ processing operations.
Multotec has helped the world’s biggest mining houses process minerals more efficiently, effectively and reliably, for over 45 years.
Driven by a global team of process engineers and metallurgical specialists, Multotec designs, builds, manufactures, installs and maintains equipment throughout the entire value chain of mineral processing plants.
We partner with you to drive continuous process optimisation to your plant with application-specific processing solutions, reducing your downtime and cost per ton.
At Multotec, we aim for the most efficient and sustainable plant maintenance, with minimal downtime and optimal performance, to decrease your overall maintenance costs.
Multotec helps you develop adequate budgets based on a strategic management approach and, in turn, balance your production targets and maintenance requirements.
This balance is mainly about the relative authority of the production and maintenance functions within an organisation. When power is unbalanced and financial decisions disproportionately favour the production side of the business, maintenance necessities may be neglected. Ultimately, this imbalance can lead to shortened plant lifespan and decreased plant reliability, as well as the destruction of operation production in the long-term.
Yet, with a strategic budget and maintenance plan, Multotec helps customers utilise their plants to full capacity, without damaging its productivity, lifespan or reliability.
What is a mineral processing plant?
A mineral processing plant recovers or extracts minerals through a range of processes, including comminution, sizing, gravity concentration, magnetic separation, and more. Multotec offers the expertise, equipment and processes to create a plant of this kind, and with a uniquely optimised mineral processing plant design, this plant will have increased efficiency and recovery.
What are the four main types of mineral processing?
Multotec specialised in all types of mineral processing, from comminution (particle size reduction which includes crushing and grinding) to sizing (separation of particle sizes by screening or classification), concentration to dewatering (solid/liquid separation).
Why is mineral processing important?
Processing mineral resources is important for the separation of valuable minerals / metals from the waste rock. This is the processing of ore after mining to provide a more concentrated material for extractive metallurgy. What is also important about this processing is that it need to be on time and on budget before it can yield valuable results.
What is sizing in mineral processing?
Sizing is the term for separation of minerals according to their size when raw material handling and processing minerals. The simplest mineral sizing process takes place through screening or movement of the particles through a screen or multiple screens.
What is recovery in mineral processing?
All processing activities can lose some of the desired mineral resources, which may occur at any processing stage, with some mining projects losing more than others. In turn, to measure the amount of recovered mineral, a plant has a recovery percentage, which is the mass of product recovered for final disposal, divided by the mass of the raw material fed into the plant.
