:: Multotec Magnetics Supplies Two Wet High Intensity Separators For Iron Ore Application In India
Multotec Magnetics has successfully commissioned two WHIMS (wet high intensity magnetic separator) machines in an iron ore application in India.
“The machine has features which include replaceable matrix plates, making it maintenance friendly and easy to service," Dr Arno Steinmuller, general manager of Multotec Magnetics, says. “It is a more efficient design than earlier generations, particularly from an energy consumption perspective and at 80 to 100 Tph, has a higher capacity." The low power consumption was a particularly important element in the customer specified requirements.
Multotec is a technology driven group that adds value to the minerals processing industry through the supply of high quality process equipment solutions. Its highly trained team of experienced engineers has extensive process and application knowledge, providing product advice and support.
”Prior to the manufacture of the two WHIMS, Multotec Magnetics undertook test work using samples from the plant to confirm the suitability of the equipment for the application. On completion, the machines were dispatched and commissioned on site by a team of Multotec engineers and technicians.
“Our previous track record in supplying WHIMS machines in both mineral sands and iron ore applications locally and internationally, coupled with our established reputation for providing optimum technical solutions and the highest levels of support, played a large role in the project being awarded to us," Steinmuller says.
“In addition to a significant improvement in serviceability, both capex and operating costs are significantly lower and add to the increased throughput achieved. This underlines the ability of Multotec to not only apply high levels of applications knowledge and technical expertise to produce high quality, customer specific solutions, but to do so in a manner that provides customers with a better bottom line," Steinmuller concludes.
