MEI Online: Gravity Concentration: Latest News: November 3rd 2003


:: Knelson Unveils the World's Largest Gravity Concentrator  

Knelson Gravity Solutions set another new standard in gravity separation technology with the unveiling of the world's largest centrifugal gravity concentrator, the Knelson XD70 concentrator, at their 25th Anniversary Customer Appreciation event held at Knelson's corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility in Langley.

The Knelson KC-XD70, weighing in at over 18 tonnes and standing 4 metres in height, was officially released to the mining industry at Knelson's 25th anniversary celebrations on October 17th, 2003. The event was the culmination of almost a year of celebrations in honour of Knelson's 25 years of gravity concentration excellence.

It was 1978 when Byron Knelson introduced the first centrifugal concentrator - the Knelson Concentrator - to the world's mining and mineral processing industry. Twenty-five years later, the company remains one of the leading players in providing gravity concentration solutions, with over 2,500 units in 70 countries.

Almost 200 industry professionals from around the world attended the unveiling, and they were not disappointed. Knelson's 25th Anniversary event was almost as impressive as this new concentrator. A Hollywood theme throughout, it was like the launching of a blockbuster movie, complete with the red carpet treatment as you entered, movie paraphernalia and movie posters highlighting Knelson equipment and Knelson Gravity Solutions displayed around the venue, and film strips with a "walk-of- fame" array of stars displaying quotes from Knelson's recent "Where In The World is Knelson?" online contest. The crowning touch perhaps, was the display around the XD70 itself, which included a giant KonZilla lizard tail peaking out from the parachute covering the KC-XD70.
