Ludowici will showcase a significant range of new minerals processing equipment on Stand 2011 during AIMEX – Asia-Pacific’s International Mining Exhibition 2011, at Sydney’s Olympic Park, Homebush, from September 6-9.
Spearheading the display will be its patented RC2020 Reflux Classifier for cleaning fine coal and minerals and which, according to Ludowici, is set to revolutionize the global mining industry. The classifier, which can separate particles by either density or size, was developed through a joint venture between Ludowici and the University of Newcastle. It combines three technologies - a Lamella settler, an autogenous dense medium separator and a fluidized bed separator.
The RC2020 is said to be an ideal alternative to spiral technology, but with a footprint up to six times smaller than spiral systems. It is also estimated to provide a 10% increase in raw material recovery and was recognized by the IChemE2010 Awards in the UK, winning the Core Chemical Engineering category for maximizing resource efficiency.
Rojan ceramic hydrocyclone components will also be featured on Ludowici’s AIMEX stand. The advanced ceramic metals used in Rojan Hydrocyclone components are proven to provide superior wear performance, improving processing efficiencies and reducing operating maintenance costs. It joined Ludowici’s product lineup following the company’s acquisition of Rojan Advanced Ceramics.
Ludowici will also use AIMEX to present its latest screening solutions. The products will include a versatile range of advanced screening media including engineered screen deck systems and polyurethane products.
Sealing solutions will be another feature of Stand 2011, with Ludowici having been involved in the sealing market since it began operations in 1858 as a leather tanner. In April this year, the company acquired Amseal, a Melbourne-based manufacturer and wholesaler of seals and sealing products.
Ludowici, which recently received the Al Group’s 2011 Icon of Industry Award, supplies a wide range of screening and separation products to the mining and quarrying industries in Australia, North and South America, South Africa, India and China.
