International technology group ANDRITZ has successfully started up its newly developed mining filter press for the iron ore industry at Jagannath Steel in India, thus once again demonstrating its comprehensive know-how and capabilities in dewatering solutions for the mining and minerals industry.
The new mining filter press developed by ANDRITZ exactly meets the specific challenges related to dewatering iron ore. Further improvements have been made in order to ensure reliable operation and maximum performance.
After the iron ore has been washed out and impurities have been removed, the ANDRITZ filter press ensures maximum dewatering of the filter cake. The newly developed feed shoe design optimizes and improves the machine’s performance for iron ore compared to the standard rectangular design, with measurable improvements for the client.
“With the new mining filter press, we have an additional proven and innovative product for the mining and minerals industry alongside hyperbaric filters, vacuum belt filters, and the regular filter presses for iron ore concentrate dewatering. This has resulted in an optimized, reliable solution that will further boost our reputation as separation specialists,” concludes Robert Stantish, Managing Director of ANDRITZ Separation India.
