Posted by on in Blog

Mineral Technologies is pleased to report that one of our Ukrainian customers, United Mining and Chemical Company (UMCC), has recently commissioned eight banks of our MD Spiral Separators (models MG6.3 and HG10i) as part of the refurbishment of their Irshansk mineral sands operation.

Business Development Manager, Dale Henderson, said that Mineral Technologies had worked with UMCC for several years and during this time had developed a solid understanding of the unique requirements of the Ukrainian site.

“We were delighted to welcome UMCC leaders to our head office earlier this year to inspect our spiral production facilities and discuss future plans for the mine site. We were also pleased to feature in UMCC’s company newsletter which reported the visit to Mineral Technologies as well as a site visit to Western Australia to inspect our spirals in operation,” said Dale.

As a follow-up to delivery of the spirals, Dale Henderson and Craig Vadeikis, Principal Process Consultant visited the Irshansk site in September this year to review the equipment installation and commissioning.

General Manager, Metallurgy, Equipment and Technology, Alex de Andrade, said that by developing a deep understanding of customer operations and process objectives Mineral Technologies is well placed to identify the best process, equipment selection and key know-how to assist project success.

“We congratulate UMCC on achieving final commissioning for their new mineral sands plant. It has been a pleasure working with UMCC throughout this process and we look forward to assisting in future operations,” said Alex.
