Savings for Manganese Miner
Fri November, 27th 2020
Elastomers Australia was asked by an Australian manganese miner to conduct a trial aimed at reducing servicing and shutdown time, and lowering overall screen media costs.
Part of the program was to provide an assessment on the previously fitted screen products (provided) by an alternate supplier and offer an Elastomers
Australia solution which would result in a more cost-effective outcome. Having identified a range of site-specific objectives and processes,
Elastomers Australia introduced an innovative screen media solution which provided superior wear life and improved fixing system to greatly reduce
maintenance time and costs.
Panel usage reduced by 42%
Labour hours reduced by 71%
Risk to service personnel reduced due to reduction in confined space working and simpler fixing system that eliminated the need for certain tools
Overall costs reduced by 39%
Plant reliability increased
Improved overall screening efficiencies
