Metso Outotec has launched what it is calling a comprehensive range of smart and sustainable mining filtration solutions as part of a reintroduction of the Larox brand name.
The line, which is designed for mining use and specifically for demanding concentrates and tailings dewatering applications, includes 15 different filter types that range from pressure filters featuring up to 100-bar pressure to vacuum filters and polishing filters.
“The well-known Larox brand, of which Metso Outotec is the sole owner, will be reintroduced as a strategic product family name for selected filters and related services,” the company said on 14 April.
“Our unique filtration solutions portfolio is based on a thorough assessment of current and future customer needs and a detailed review of related technologies. As a result, we can now offer an industry-leading option for all types of mining dewatering needs,” added Jussi Venäläinen, who is vice president of filters.
Venäläinen said the entire range has been created to optimise miners’ total cost of ownership. It also will be able to help increase performance, capacity and residual moisture.
“The filtration solutions feature a sustainable design to improve environmental performance through energy, emissions and water-efficiency, and are part of the recently launched Metso Outotec Planet Positive offering,” the equipment maker said.
The line will also be in compliance with safety outlines, be easy to operate and maintain, and feature highly automated features that can support advanced process optimisation and remote support for users.
“Metso Outotec’s certified service experts are well positioned to support our customers worldwide in filter-related aftermarket needs. Services and parts can be integrated to any of the dewatering solutions with a Life Cycle Services (LCS) contract to benefit our customers with fixed KPIs,” said Tomi Ravattinen, vice president of filtration services.
