In response to the industry’s need for cost-effectiveequipment and service innovations aimed at delivering the best processing efficiency, Multotec is offering an added-value attraction to its stand in Hall 6 this year.
The group will host a series of talks, presentations and panel discussions at regular intervals throughout the week to educate the sector and highlight its technological expertiseacross various minerals processing applications.
The events will be presented by a number of local and international speakers from within the Multotec stable, as well as various industry and institutional partners.
Multotec will also have a wide range of its proprietarytechnology- and solution-driven equipment on display atElectra Mining to demonstrate its minerals processing expertise.
Products and Services Highlighting its range of products and services, Multotec says unplanned shutdowns, which often result in the costly loss of production hours, can be avoided using its Hawkeyepredictive maintenance services. Precise measurements, based on wear-rate history, facilitate consumption projections with accurate timeline predictions for parts replacement, thereby, ensuring maximum equipmentperformance and availability.
Multotec has also developed a state-of-the-art technology, which allows customers to monitor milling performance. Having recognised that this particular circuit can directly impact downstream recoveries, Multotec will highlight how its customised, integrated linear measurement reportingsystem delivers this functionality, which will, ultimately, help improve the overall performance of any processing plant.
Meanwhile, the MATO mechanical belt fastening system, produced using 75% local content, can deliver a seamless joint in less than 30 minutes, which is considerably less than the traditional hot splice method which can take up to six hours. This solution from Multotec also helps its customers reduce operational downtime. The system’s lacer head is interchangeable throughout its range of fasteners and lacing beds, which reduces the number of tools and parts needed on hand.
The MATO Wavemaster specifically guarantees straight and smooth belt joints flawlessly and, consequently, eliminates joint failure.
The MATO primary and diagonal conveyor belt cleaners ensure the highest belt operational availability. On the back of significant success with the product, it introduced the MATO secondary belt cleaner, which incorporates the unique, quick-change M-Track technology with a slide-on blade that further reduces maintenance downtime.
Multotec will also showcase its T-range series of 26” (T660)cyclones at Electra Mining Africa. These cyclones are ideal for brownfield operations, an area which is rapidly gaining momentum in the mining industry in a low capital-expenditure environment.
The Multotec slurry pumps range will also be on show and can be customised to suit specific operational requirements. Impeller material flexibility assists in this process and further ensures the most efficient performance from the pump across any application.
The Multotec DTV range of vertical spindle pumps features a cast Y-piece that lasts up to three times longer than traditional components, thereby reducing overall cost of ownership. The entire range is fully supported in South Africathrough Multotec’s local research and development serviceand facilities.
Other Multotec products include a patented rotating cone sampler, which overcomes the limitations of fixed cutter or pressure pipe probe designs.
The group’s chute systems include the piping chute, which is an alternative to conventional rotary scrubbing units and is particularly effective in the diamond industry. Theequipment is ideal for local and remote African mining sites. The chutes have no moving parts, reducing spares stockholding requirements, are power efficient, safe to operate, easy to maintain and have a significantly lower cost of ownership to conventional rotary scrubbers.
The MultoCano chute system offers real on-site benefits which are realised even before it reaches site. Suitable fortransport on a regular flatbed truck (with less riggingequipment and personnel), it offers significant transportsaving costs. It is also easy to offload with a forklift. A team of three can comfortably assemble the chute system on site, even in confined spaces.
The system uses Multotec’s quick fit panels, which are prefitted composite ceramic tile panels that eliminate the need for epoxies and the related delays in maintenancedowntime, owing to conventional installation methods.
