Thickening plant unit

Based on Metso Outotec IPS, HRT, HCT & PT technologies, a thickener plant dewaters the tailings from very low solids density to medium and high density. The core is the feed system that allows the flow to settle and entrains air to escape. It also provides feed in the desired velocity to distribute the slurry evenly into the feedwell.

Our Reactorwell and Vane Feedwell provides enhanced mixing, dilution, and retention of the feed, maximizing flocculant adsorption and aggregate growth. Advanced control systems such as thickener optimizer also helps in improving the overall performance of the plant unit.

Filtration plant unit

Based on Larox® FFP or FPS filtration technology, the Metso Outotec filtration plant unit is specifically designed for high volume tailings processing leading to savings in operational and maintenance costs. The pre-enginereed module can always be tailored according to the specific requirements of the project.

Material handling plant unit

Metso Outotec offers a wide range of material handling equipment that is reliable and needs less maintenance. Our extensive conveying and stacking portfolio help in transferring material from the filter plant to the actual tailings storage facility. Designed with robust components, the equipment is built to last and perform under even the toughest conditions.
