CPE provides a number of agitation solutions to the mineral processing sector, including solid suspension agitators and anti-scaling agitators for precipitation tanks.
In regions where topography does not lend itself to transport of iron ore in dry form, the industry solution has been to slurry the ore for pumping from the mine to the processing and load out facility.
This requires surge or holding slurry tanks at either end of the pipeline.
These tanks need to have the solids in suspension for uniform feeding of solids to the downstream process.
Superior Agitation Technology
Our agitation technology can be utilised to provide the required solid suspension at a very high efficiency level, which leads to:
high tank utilisation
long-lasting and low maintenance agitator setup due to minimised power consumption
Main process stages where agitation is essential:
CPE Agitators in Mineral Processing
Carbon in Leach (CIL)
Carbon in Pulp (CIP)
Our experts can employ process analysis tools, CFD modelling, and pilot plant testing in collaboration with you to design the agitation solution that suits your process the best.
Over the decades, besides supply of brand-new agitators, we have performed many agitator retrofits in mineral processing plants around the world using our agitation technology to modify underperforming or inefficient existing agitators.
