Metso Outotec continues to provide mining industry particle ore sorting solutions supported by TOMRA technology

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on August 17, 2021, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

Metso Outotec and TOMRA Mining have agreed to continue the non-exclusive cooperation to supply particle ore sorting solutions for the mining and metallurgical industries. The collaboration expands Metso Outotec’s and TOMRA’s capability to offer leading-edge solutions that help increase the overall value of ore deposits by reaching new levels of energy efficiency and productivity, decreasing costs, and extending the life of mining operations.

“Separating ore from waste rock as early and as efficiently as possible is essential in minerals processing. The best result can be achieved by combining state-of-the-art crushing systems with advanced ore sorting. The combination of Metso Outotec’s crushing know-how and TOMRA’s particle ore sorting expertise is an excellent match, providing substantial benefits to our customers,” says Guillaume Lambert, Vice President, Crushing at Metso Outotec.

TOMRA’s sensor-based sorting has been a proven concept in minerals processing, recycling, and the food industry for nearly 50 years. It can reduce specific energy consumption by 15 percent, as well as the amount of water used by three to four cubic meters per tonne of ore. This makes it an extremely cost-effective and sustainable solution that can benefit both mining operations and the environment.

“TOMRA, as an original equipment manufacturer, can add significant value to the process and engineering optimization of sensor-based sorting inclusive solutions when engaging with our customers within a cooperation agreement framework,” says Mathilde Robben, Key Account Manager at TOMRA Mining.
