:: Tempo Mineral Processing Offers DMS Cyclone Refurbishment Service

 

With the mining industry under increasing pressure to cut costs and increase productivity, Tempo Mineral Processing offers a unique service whereby Dense Medium Separation (DMS) cyclones can be refurbished for even wear distribution and extended life.

This allows for improved mass balance of DMS cyclones in terms of the separation or cut size, the flow split between the over- and underflow, the sharpness of the classification, and the capacity (pressure drop). This all translates into a dramatic increase in total efficiency, Tempo Mineral Processing Director Thabisho Malatji comments.

The lifecycle of a DMS cyclone can be extended significantly by the application of a reaction-bonded silicon carbide lining (RbSiC) lining on the spigot and lower cone portion in particular, with the lining pattern running against the material flow for minimum gaps and steps and optimal joint sealing between components.

“We offer our customers the lowest total cost of ownership by means of even wear distribution, in addition to continuous improvement of the actual cyclone lining,” Malatji highlights. Here the key measurements in performance monitoring are the sharpness of separation, the misplacement or rejection of product, and the separation point itself.
