Chromite recovery Ref: MMPR 457

Benefits to the industry: With the advent of the Longi-Multotec Vertical Ring Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS), platinum group metals (PGM) beneficiation plants will now be able to achieve attractive yields from tailings dams. Currently the minus 1 000 to plus 115 micron chromite is being recovered by spirals, but no proven technology is used to recover the fine chromite which is minus 100 micro.

Multotec is currently involved in extensive test work in chromite recovery using its WHIMS technology. Tests have shown that the WHIMS machines typically have a force factor of two hundred million Gauss2/mm, which is a vastly significant difference when compared to a traditional low intensity wet drum magnetic separator, which has only 20 000 Gauss2/mm.

Protect your assets Ref: MMPR 456

Benefits to the industry: Brigit’s GreenMist Rotor technology generates a very fine water mist that is proving to be extremely effective in the extinguishing of most types of fires (class A, B, C and F). Due to microscopic droplet size achieved with this new technology, the surface area of the water is greatly increased. GreenMist extinguishes fire mainly by cooling (heat absorption), oxygen displacement and the attenuation of heat transmission/radiation. It is safe for people (no toxicity or thermal breakdown) and 100% eco-friendly with no environmental impact.

For demanding applications Ref: MMPR 418

Benefits to the industry: Since it very first designs in the mid-1980s up to the most recent state-of-the-art range, Sulzer have delivered more than 130 000 Ahlstar pumps worldwide – all designed to exceed standard requirements and customer expectations.

The Ahlstar range, comprised of the A, N, W and E ranges, has been designed in accordance with ISO 5199 and ISO 2858 international standards, and has been even further developed to surpass market standards and ensure performance and reliability.

Peace with grease Ref: MMPR 417

Benefits to the industry: Fuchs Renolit Lubrene LMG 960 EP grease was developed for use on pins and bushes in large earth-moving equipment found in the mining and heavy industrial markets, especially major hydraulic excavators. The grease incorporates a heavy base oil to enhance load-carrying capability and is manufactured utilising a semi-synthetic base oil for improved performance in its pumpability in colder weather.

The grease has a semi-synthetic base oil with solid additives that increase its load-carrying and extreme pressure capabilities.

High strength splicing Ref: MMPR 416

Benefits to the industry: BMG’s highly efficient belt fastener system – the Super-Screw – which was originally used as a temporary alternative to conventional hot and cold splicing, has proved to be totally reliable as a permanent splice for conveyor belt repairs.

This high-strength splicing system is a flexible rubber splice using self tapping screws that enable Super-Screw to be installed regardless of the configuration of the conveyor belt and irrespective of access and weather conditions. The current trend in the mining industry is to avoid the use of hazardous substances where ever possible. Trichloroethylene, a hazardous solvent used in conventional hot and cold splicing procedures, can now be replaced by using the Super-Screw system as a safe splicing alternative.

Maintenance: With training from BMG, an in-house maintenance team can quickly and efficiently install the Super-Screw system, using a simple tool like an electrical or battery powered screw driver.

Eco-accredited Ref: MMPR 414

Benefits to the industry: I-CAT continues to consolidate its reputation as a leading environmental solutions company, having achieved internationally-recognised accreditation from the ‘Ecospecifier Verified Product Programme' in May 2015.

Sustainability: Ecospecifier is an online platform that promotes the protection and restoration of natural systems by building awareness of practical solutions that support healthy environments and ecological regeneration in the built environments and construction sector.

The Ecospecifier Verified Product Programme ensures products have been independently assessed according to the Verified Product Programme Standard – whereby all manufacturers’ eco claims are true in accordance with ISO 14021, consumer law and that products are healthy and non-toxic. One of I-CAT’s products that received this high-profile certification is RDC 20, a water-soluble anionic polyelectrolyte polymer comprised of an exclusive formulation of blended emulsified co-polymers and ionic modifiers. RDC 20 is produced from natural substances and features no petrochemical or hydrocarbon ingredients, making it 100% eco-friendly.

Performance of a powered pump Ref: MMPR 413

Benefits to the industry: The XC-Series cordless pump, available through Enerpac, is ideal for jobs using small to medium size cylinders and hydraulic tools, and is compatible with over 140 Enerpac tools and cylinders.

These cordless pumps combine the performance of a powered pump with portability of a hand pump making them a perfect solution for remote applications with limited or no access to a power supply or for locations where corded solutions present trip hazards.
Sustainability: The Lithium-Ion battery provides superior run time. The battery packs contain no cadmium, so they are environmentally friendly. Enerpac encourages recycling.

A generator for all seasons Ref: MMPR 415

Benefits to the industry: Goscor Power Products have ensured that its generators, available from 2kva Inverter units to our super silent 65kva water-cooled diesel powered standby sets, cater for virtually every power generation need. In addition to optional units with automatic transfer switches, all equipped with AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation), Goscor Power Products also supplies generators with an easy start function that includes electric as well as remote start.

Backup service: A team of qualified installers from the Goscor dealer network will conduct site visits to determine the end-user’s exact generator requirements in order to ensure the correct generator that is best suited to a particular application is specified. Goscor Power Products delivers the full power generator solution, from professional, quality installation services to parts and spares support from Goscor’s countrywide dealer network.
