Weighing over 72 tonnes (80 tons US)the SLK4390WXFS double deck flat vibrating screen can process around 9,000 tonnes per hour (10,000 tons US per hour) of slurry in a metal extraction process. This week’s Blog takes a look at ‘The Beast’, a new Schenck Process vibrating screen driven by four eccentric gearbox DF704 exciters, which could well be the largest screen ever designed and manufactured.
This week’s Blog examines the mining industry’s move towards electrical power and what the power team at Meglab has developed in regard to the different solutions that meet the challenges brought on by this shift.
On the surface, it may appear as though truck bodies don’t deviate much from one design to another, but that cannot be further from the truth. This week’s Blog discusses what you need to keep in mind to help increase payload, decrease downtime, and get the highest lifespan on your trucks.
The push towards digitization in the mining sector is increasingly becoming more immediate – and digitization is the key. This week’s Blog explores how digitization has transformed the industry and takes a glimpse into the future of automation.
Amid the surge of successful major capital projects in Canada in recent years, there have been some recurring challenges in getting projects off the ground. In this week’s Blog, we explore some challenges—and potential trends offering solutions—that those in the infrastructure space will want to consider to help avoid any hurdles in their own projects.
Cyber security was a growing threat for miners long before the pandemic, and the middle of a crisis is the last place you want to learn you have a cyber security problem. In the spirit of Cyber Security Awareness Month, this week’s Blog points out what you need to know to look for and how to prepare for this new wave of threats, and how preparation is your first line of defence.
Visibility into data means sustainable mining doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. This week’s Blog looks at how mining companies can reduce their energy and water consumption and improve on sustainability to help lead the mining industry into the next era, while also increasing production, ensuring product quality, and generating a profit.
The mining and quarrying industry brings together some of the most destructive forces affecting modern day machinery and equipment. This week’s Blog explores Belzona’s line of rapid-curing elastomeric solutions to the many treats posed by the mining environment, from abrasion, corrosion, wear, impact, and chemical attacks.
Almost every mine today makes use of some kind of operations control centre that makes it possible to remotely monitor, measure, and control mining operations. And – without an appropriately designed control room – safe high-speed mechanized mining would neither be practical nor commercially viable. This week’s Blog provides a glance into some best practice in control room construction, equipping, and processes.
When it comes to pumping slurry, there can be very few applications that are more challenging than the hydro-transport of heavy duty slurries in oil sands production. Earlier this year, GIW Industries Inc. commissioned its largest ever heavy duty centrifugal slurry pump for operation in Canada’s oil sands; this week’s Blog takes a look at this remarkable piece of technology and examines it applicability to your operations.
