The Secret to an Efficient Mineral Processing Plant

Fast Material wear is no laughing matter, and can decrease mineral processing plant efficiency. Not only do they lead to unhappy and overworked current employees, but they also can lead to production delays and even plant closures.

Plant managers and companies need to have a highly efficient mineral processing plant to prevent these things from happening. This will allow them to keep up with demand, even when short-staffed.

While there are several things that you can do to make your plant run more smoothly, many plant managers don’t always look into the significant pay-offs of updated technology. One of the most common technologies used in mineral processing plants today is our ceramic linings.

The Secret: Ceramic Technology

Ceramic linings are used to protect the inside of pipes and vessels from corrosion and abrasion. Not only do they help keep the plant running smoothly, but they also extend the life of the equipment. In addition, advanced ceramic linings offer superior resistance to wear and tear, even in the most challenging environments.

When the plant is down, employees require a high level of effort to fix or replace any broken equipment. This work can be complicated and increase safety hazards as accidents are more likely in these situations due to them being complicated repairs with the potential for additional problems.

Ceramic coatings have been investigated since the 1980’s for use in harsh aerospace environments. Check out this compiled data on commercially available ceramic coatings.

CTI-X7® Industrial Ceramic Lining Specification

With our years of experience in the industry, we have learned that ceramic liners can improves mineral processing efficiency by extending equipment life. Our tests show an average 20:1 advantage for material processing systems such as piping, cyclones, and chutes over traditional metal ones with similar applications.

The CTI-X7® Ceramic Standard has marked improvements across the North American Continent in replacing rubber, AR, chromium carbide liners in piping, and chute distribution systems.

In emergency repairs due to a blowout, you can do a temporary weld on carbon with ceramic or stainless with ceramic, reducing environmental spills and shutdowns.
