Separation expertise for your success in the mining and minerals industry
Need to boost your throughput? Improve tailings treatment? Or maximize water recovery? Whatever your process demands might be, we ensure you have the right separation solution to achieve optimal yield and product quality at the lowest total cost of ownership.
Meeting tomorrow’s challenges
In the mining and minerals business, efficient separation can be a crucial competitive advantage. Sometimes it’s the age-old challenge of increasing dewatering throughput while preserving product quality. Other times it means drying with the lowest possible energy consumption, no matter what heat source is available. And finally, it means exploring innovative new ways to safely handle tailings or automate and monitor remote facilities.
Your lifecycle partner for any separation challenge
The mining and minerals industry demands unique capabilities from technology suppliers. Starting with your process requirements and mineral characteristics, we provide an unmatched combination of expertise and technologies to master your separation, drying, and automation challenges.
The best fit for any requirement
ANDRITZ systems are designed for the most demanding applications in mining and minerals processing. This includes some of the highest capacity technologies in the industry, from thickeners and presses to filters, centrifuges, and flocculent plants. Whatever your mineral characteristics and end product specifications might be, our pilot facility allows us to test, tailor, and optimize the ideal combination of technologies to meet your needs.
Efficient tailings treatment with a smaller footprint
Tailings treatment continues to be one of the fastest growing challenges in the mining sector. At the same time, environmental risks, space constraints, and water scarcity all need to be managed cost-effectively. Our complete range of individual technologies and turnkey solutions can be tailored to help you achieve your goals at the optimal OPEX or CAPEX for your specific operations. Higher dryness with lower energy consumption? Or, high specific throughput with the smallest equipment footprint? When it comes to finding the right tailings treatment solution, everything starts with your requirements. Based on the conditions at your site, we can recommend and fine-tune a solution that gives you the highest possible process efficiency.
Complete automation solutions
To ensure safe, trouble-free operations, our automation solutions range from upgrades of individual systems, including electrical, control, and instrumentation, to full automation of entire plants. For greenfield plants, we design and test against dynamic simulations in order to ensure error-free start-up. For upgrades and optimization projects, we can customize a complete range of engineering, simulation, control, and training solutions, depending on your local requirements.
