Engineering Ceramic Process Equipment

How Ceramic Engineering Plays a Role in Continuous Production

Continuous production is pivotal to plant performance in mineral processing, especially in the gold and coal mining industries. When a plant operates under 24 x 7 continuous production capabilities, it allows for a higher ROI for plant managers and crews, allowing teams to keep up with demand. 

Not every type of material can allow for continuous processing. Many materials wear down significantly over time, resulting in tearing in the process equipment lining. 

If this problem persists, it can eventually result in costly incidents, such as spills or abrasions. These incidents can create issues for teams, as they will have to cease production efforts to clean up damaged equipment and spilled slurry. 

The Solution to the Industry’s Continuous Production Needs

Advancements in technology over the past several decades have allowed for more precise materials to be engineered for plants. These materials allow plant managers to run their equipment continuously without dealing with the impacts of corrosion or abrasion. 

Ceramic equipment has proven to be a reliable alternative to traditional processing equipment. The ceramic lining is resistant to abrasion and corrosion, allowing it to last longer than these traditional materials. 

Here are just a few of the benefits of utilizing ceramic equipment, as opposed to traditional alternatives.

A few of the benefits of ceramic processing equipment include: 
  • Allowing plant managers to ensure continuous production
  • Providing plant equipment with the durability necessary to carry out daily tasks
  • Improving the ROI and lifespan of ceramic equipment
  • Ensuring that spills and leaks do not occur on the job site
  • Giving plant managers the tools necessary to ensure smooth operations
  • Reducing the amount of wear and abrasion that process equipment undergoes
  • Allowing process equipment to sustain for a longer time
  • And more

Ceramic equipment has helped plant managers to continue to meet production expectations. The CTI-X7Ⓡ technology that Ceramic Technology, Inc. has can greatly assist teams in adopting more efficient, durable processes. These processes will help increase overall production capabilities. 

Why Use Ceramic Materials When Engineering Plant Equipment?

Ceramic tends to have the longevity and durability that most modern process equipment lacks. Ceramic allows people to get the most usage out of high-impact plant areas, giving plant managers more control over plant performance. 

Often, our engineers notice that the areas that struggle the most with abrasion and corrosion tend to wear down more quickly. This wearing usually causes the plant equipment to fail, resulting in spills or leaks. 

Since these spills and leaks occur in vital plant components, many mineral processing plants must shut down to clean up the spill. Also, during this time, plant staff have to troubleshoot the situation and find a temporary resolution before proceeding with production. 

This process is costly, time-consuming, and stressful for staff to deal with, which is why we recommend utilizing ceramic components in high-usage plant equipment.

Here are a few of the areas that experience the most wear in a plant:
  • Impact elbows
  • Cyclones
  • Sump systems
  • Chute systems
  • Cyclone tubs
  • Pre-screens

At Ceramic Technology, we have seen marked improvements in plant production after plant managers utilize CTI-X7Ⓡ technology. Our teams work closely with plants from Tampa Bay to Hudson Bay, developing solutions that work best for plant managers and staff. 

How Can CTI-X7Ⓡ Technology Help Plants?

Continuous production is essential at any mineral processing plant, as it allows plants to function 24 hours a day and seven days a week. This kind of production is pivotal for a plant, as it can ensure that costly spills and cleanups do not happen. 

These events take up a lot of time and can end up costing a significant amount of money, as well. Ceramic process equipment and lining ensure that these issues do not occur, giving plant managers the peace of mind necessary to carry out their work.
