Mineral Processing Equipment


Chemical Plant & Engineering (CPE) has over 60 years experience in the design, manufacture and supply of mineral processing equipment. CPE offers a complete engineering service, starting with laboratory and pilot testing, through to detailed engineering design, manufacture and supervision of installation and commissioning.

CPE’s mineral processing equipment has been used in:

  • GOLD

Mineral processing equipment manufactured by CPE has been used in a range of applications including fine alumina hydrate seed filtration, course alumina hydrate seed filtration, CIP agitation, CIL agitation and red mud filtration.

Please contact us via our enquiries page should you require detailed information regarding specific mineral processing applications.

CPE’s equipment portfolio for the mineral processing sector includes:


CPE’s high efficiency RTF4 Hydrofoil has been successfully used in retrofitting under-performing agitator installations. Reasons for retrofitting include:

  • Inadequate process response due to insufficient agitation flow causing inadequate solids suspension
  • Motor overloading (due to process / product changes)
  • Mechanical failure due to low service factors in the design of gear reducers and shaft / impeller assembly
  • Reduce power consumption, save up to 40% in power

Retrofitting with the RTF4 Hydrofoils can be achieved with the existing gear box and motor – resulting in a very cost effective solution.

Chemical Plant & Engineering has an extensive installations list and case studies validating the performance of mineral processing equipment installations.

CPE is a division of CEM International Pty Ltd. Head office is located in Melbourne Australia and wholly owned manufacturing facilities located in Australia and China.
