Sophisticated separation solutions to master future mining challenges
In the mining and minerals business, efficient separation can be a crucial competitive advantage. Boosting dewatering throughput while preserving product quality, drying with the lowest possible energy consumption, and also exploring innovative new ways to safely handle tailings or automate and monitor remote facilities are part of tomorrow’s challenges.
Your lifecycle partner for any separation challenge
Starting with the process requirements and mineral characteristics of your product, ANDRITZ provides an unmatched combination of expertise and technologies to master your separation, drying, and automation challenges – combined with sophisticated service solutions for less downtime and higher productivity in your facility.
The right solution for your requirements
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, flocculent plants and intelligent filter presses, rounded off with service and automation solutions. Whatever the mineral characteristics and specifications of your end product might be, our pilot facility allows us to test, tailor, and optimise 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.
One step further in digitalisation
To ensure safe, trouble-free operations, our automation solutions range from upgrades to individual systems, including electrics, control equipment and instrumentation, to full automation of entire plants. For greenfield plants, we design and test using dynamic simulations in order to ensure error-free start-up. For upgrades and optimisation projects, we can customise a complete range of engineering, simulation, control, and training solutions, depending on your local requirements. Our extensive experience paired with innovation and digitalisation delivers improvements precisely where they are needed; ANDRITZ is your partner helping you to profit from the opportunities that come with Industry 4.0.
