Ventomatic’s R&D group has been exploring and developing technologies for use in the minerals and industrial markets.
FLSmidth began a screen media service contract on December 1, 2013, with a full-time crew on site to perform daily maintenance duties on all screen media, as well as cyclone inspections at the Khumani Iron Ore Mine in South Africa.
Handling large construction projects is no simple task. Whether installing new equipment, transporting massive parts long distances, clearing areas while being environmentally conscious, or raising a building while fighting the elements, there are a multitude of aspects to take into consideration.
Carpentaria Gold Pty Ltd Ravenswood Operation, in Queensland, Australia, continually strives to increase their overall gold production by improving mining and processing efficiencies. FLSmidth was approached by Carpentaria Gold to conduct a review performance of their 22mØ tailings thickener with a focus on optimization and modernization options to improve gold, water and cyanide recovery. FLSmidth designed a new feed system incorporating E-DUC® feed dilution technology and our latest revolutionary thickener innovation — E-Volute™ feedwell.
Last December, a core group of FLSmidth employees responded to a potentially detrimental failure at a mine site in Papua New Guinea. Their actions exemplify FLSmidth’s devotion to customers—anytime, anywhere.
As developing countries continue to grow, coal remains the largest mineral industry in the world. FLSmidth offers the whole flowsheet of equipment and solutions to handle and process coal operations.
A new technology for dry sintering of nepheline and limestone to produce alumina has been developed in collaboration between Pikalevo Soda, FLSmidth and the Russian National Mineral Resources University. The new technology is a result of laboratory research activities and semi-industrial tests conducted by FLSmidth in Denmark and the USA.
In response to the needs of our customers, FLSmidth has developed a hydraulic rolling frame assembly to reduce screen change-out time in typical roll-in/roll-out screen installations. This design allows a complete screen change-out to be carried out in less than 60 minutes.
FLSmidth worked in conjunction with the Andina Division to design a revolutionary dual sampling system (DSS).
Through a multi-year process, FLSmidth has now successfully delivered numerous pieces of equipment to the Toromocho Mine located in the peaks of the Andes Mountains. Among the engineering feats accomplished are some of the largest mills in the world, as well as a seemingly impossible overland conveyor system.
Being where our customers need us and ready to serve their needs are on the top of FLSmidth's priority list. The new Supercenter in Delmas, South Africa exemplifies this initiative by providing not only spare parts, but also rebuild and repair services, manufacturing, trial assembly and factory acceptance testing close to our customers' operations.
FLSmidth’s Dawson Metallurgical Laboratories (DML) began following the basic 5S principles in August 2013 and has expanded with a sixth S, for Safety, to better suit the laboratory environment and corporate goals.
AngloGold Ashanti's TauTona operation offered FLSmidth the opportunity to refurbish and install a Koepe winder at the 64 level of the mine shaft. This was a unique opportunity as this project entailed the complete manufacture of a new Koepe winder, which was booked through our Material Handling division and executed by our Customer Services division.
