Cost-effective, innovative, sustainable solutions to the very end

Modernizing or upgrading equipment is a cost-effective and sustainable manner to update aging equipment to the latest more efficient technology and increase capacity to continue production adding to the life of your plant and profitability.

Refurbishments can restore and optimize your equipment to its original condition to continue production.

Other ways to increase the lifetime of your plant is by making use of mobile filters, reserve filters, and modular container systems which can be charged at a monthly fee to suit your timeline.

Sustainable and water efficient tailings solutions to help our planet

The future of mining depends on sustainable practices that contribute to the equitable development of the community and ecosystem while enabling modern life.

With the introduction of new-age dewatering technology, we are committed to offering productive and eco-efficient solutions to our customers.

We help mining companies not only to maximize water recovery but also help reduce the footprint of tailings dams.

  • Up to 90% water recovery with high-performance filters
  • Up to 85% reduced plant footprint with compact and efficient design of  Inclined Plate Settler (IPS)
  • Improved filtration efficiency into fine and coarse streams with MHC™ Series Hydrocyclone
  • Reduced reagents using thickeners with Reactorwell™ technology
