Improvements in Iron Ore Beneficiation for MIB in Brasil

Posted by on in Blog

MIB Brasil has recently installed our newly released Medium Intensity Magnetic Separator(MIMS) into their Iron Ore plant.

Just over 2 years ago we installed a Spiral Plant for 220 t/h feed composed of 28 HC33 Triple Start Spirals. Since then MIB has been planning to use magnetic separation to recover part of the Spiral tailings.

After a program of test works conducted at the MIB plant using the 4 poles WHIMS, we have now installed the MIMS 3000. 600mm in diameter and 3000mm long, the MIMS has a capacity of 100t/h feed and is providing an increase in mass recovery for MIB’s plant.

If you have an operation in Brasil and you are looking to increase production please contact me or write a comment below.
