The new Metso MHCTM Series Hydrocyclone has been specifically designed for grinding circuit classification duties
In response to mining industry needs, Metso is introducing a new generation of fine classification technologies, the Metso MHCTM Series Hydrocyclone and the Metso UltraFine Screen.
With this new offering, Metso says it is making it easier for customers to adopt next-generation, fine classification technologies to improve efficiency and profitability.
Designed specifically for grinding circuit classification duties, the new MHCTM Series Hydrocyclone was developed in collaboration with Metso's world-class simulation and modelling scientists. The design focuses on optimised process performance, superior wear component design, and improved ease of maintenance.
The company says the new hydrocyclones are ideal for classification duties ranging from primary grinding to fine regrinding applications across the full range of mineral types.
In the area of wet fine screening classification, the new Metso UltraFine Screen is said to reduce energy and water consumption. It directly classifies particles by size via the physical dimensions of the screening media aperture.
The improved separation efficiency and resulting reductions in material handling and comminution energy lead to substantial savings in the overall operating costs. Additionally, screening performance is less influenced by plant operational variability and “can positively impact downstream recovery processes.”
