Designed for easy installation with minimal downtime for a hassle-free transition
- Enhanced metallurgical performance
- Improved process control
- Lower operating costs
- Easy to install
Larger flotation cells equipped with center launders, while efficient, require superior froth management due to their substantial surface area. Without an optimized froth zone these cells may suffer from shallow froth bed, stagnant froth and pulping, leading to poor froth recovery, decreased efficiency and suboptimal results. The Metso Spider crowder offers the solution.
Enhanced metallurgical performance
Our innovative design improves froth recovery by reducing froth surface area, resulting in superior metallurgical performance.
Improved process control
Increased froth depth enhances your process control, giving you more flexibility and control over your operations.
Lower operating costs
The spider crowder upgrade optimizes air flow rates, potentially reducing air blower energy consumption, saving you costs in the long run.
The upgrade in detail
The spider crowder is designed for easy installation as an upgrade with minimal downtime, little to no modifications and less required crew, ensuring a hassle-free transition.
Two types of crowders are available, designed for the inner and outer areas of the center launder, based on your specific crowding needs and required froth balance and stability.
The new crowder design is a game-changer, enabling servicing larger flotation cells already equipped with center launders by providing more crowding close to the tank perimeter.
