Doppelmayr Transport Technology – RPC “El Limon-Guajes”, Mexico (2016)

To connect the El Limón gold ore pit with the processing plant it was necessary to overcome an altitude difference of approx. 400m in steep terrain. Minera Media Luna, S.A. de C.V. (MML), 100% owned subsidiary of Torex Gold Resources Inc., opted for the RopeCon® by Doppelmayr Transport Technology as a means of transport. Along with other aspects, safety and environment were key considerations in prompting the decision. The system transports 1,000 metric tons of gold ore per hour into the valley over a distance of 1.3km.

CONCETTI Group: Low Level Palletiser PS-AB/15S

These Low-level Palletisers by Concetti are particularly suited for medium speeds with stable bags with a well-defined shape.

The connection to the filling lines, including previously installed ones, is thus very easy.

The machine is composed of a rigid structure with a vertical frame sliding on it and this sustains the trapdoor mechanism for unloading the bag layer on the pallet being formed.

Flexicon: Sanitary High-Lift Box/Container Tipper

Whistable, Kent –  A new sanitary TIP-TITE® High-Lift Box/Container Tipper from Flexicon discharges dust-free into vessels 1830 to 3050 mm above the plant floor.

Boxes and other containers are loaded at floor level and hydraulically seated against a discharge hood. The assembly is then hydraulically elevated and tipped, causing the discharge hood spout to seat against a gasketed receiving ring installed on any receiving vessel or process equipment. Opening of a pneumatically actuated slide gate valve at the spout outlet allows controlled, dust-free discharge, while closing it allows partially empty boxes and containers to be returned to the plant floor.
