Concentration efficiency was improved by increasing iron concentrate recovery

One of Nord Minerals’ Central Asian customer facilities increased iron concentrate recovery by more than 1% compared to the current scheme, ensuring that the declared process performance was met. To achieve this, Nord Minerals’ team developed complete solution and delivered four pump-hydrocyclone units with an own automated control system (hereinafter referred to as APHCU). In this project, the Company used hydrocyclones manufactured by our Partner-Multotec company: Multotec HC-500 and Multotec VV-350.

Nord Minerals audited the section at the proposal formulation stage, analyzed the performance of the existing facility, calculated the schemes, and selected main and auxiliary equipment. Installation supervision and commissioning were completed by Nord Minerals field service specialists.

Tests to determine the key classification indicators and performance evaluation of the entire section continued for 90 calendar days and were finished in February 2022. The pilot test results confirmed that the proposed solution was effective.
