Why bigger isn’t always better and one size definitely doesn’t fit all

Jon Lawson

Global mining is changing rapidly: rising costs, environmental pressures and health and safety have called time on traditional truck and shovel methods. As the industry becomes increasingly aware of the need for ‘sustainable mining’, the ecological benefits derived from the elimination of dust and reduction of harmful greenhouse emissions caused by truck and shovel methods are self-evident.

For example, the  MMD Twin Shaft MINERAL SIZER has the ability to process both wet sticky material and hard dry rock or a combination of both through the same machine. At MINExpo 2016 the company is featuring its 500 and 1150 Series Sizers, alongside a heavy duty D4 Apron Plate Feeder, designed to provide a regulated feed of material into the sizing plant. This feeder is specifically engineered to handle the undefined impact forces from direct loading, with apron plates cleverly designed to reduce fines and spillage.

Attendees can learn more about the Sizer’s three-stage breaking action and scroll formation, as well as the latest advances in IPSC technology – all available via the MMD interactive iPad App. The Fully Mobile Sizer, can process 9,000 tonnes per hour of overburden, with peaks of 14,000TPH demonstrated.

MINExpo 2016 offers visitors the opportunity to meet one of MMD's 20 regional representatives who can explain how the company can solve mining challenges, with environmentally-friendly solutions.
