Minimize downtime and maximize plant availability with quicker, easier, and safer maintenance carried out from the Outotec Service Platform.
Quicker, safer, and easier maintenance
Minimized downtime and higher plant availability
Plant availability is one of the most important KPIs for any concentrator because every lost production hour has a direct impact on operational profit. Maximizing availability requires proactive maintenance. Flotation cell maintenance is relatively complex since the most important wear parts – the rotor and the stator – are at the bottom of the cell.
Regular maintenance inspections should be carried out, and this requires the cell to be emptied. To make the replacement process more efficient and to avoid working in a confined space, the drive, shaft, and mixing mechanism should be lifted out of the cell. Maintenance is carried out from a service platform, also known as a maintenance platform.
The Outotec Service Platform is specifically designed for use with Outotec TankCell® flotation cells. Its layout facilitates quick, easy maintenance of the cell’s mixing mechanism, resulting in less downtime and therefore higher plant availability. The platform is available in individual and dual configurations. The dual configuration includes a spare drive shaft to minimize downtime while maintenance work is ongoing.
