We develop, we produce, we modernize, we teach! The alignment-meeting concerning concentrating equipment took place at “Rudgormash” Company.
On the 2nd and 3rd of June 2016 the alignment-meeting related to concentrating equipment was held. This meeting was held by the specialists of the LLC “Concentrating Equipment” for the technical, operational and commercial services of the purchasers; and this company is a part of “Rudgormash group”.
At the awareness-raising seminar “New and modernized equipment of “Rudgormash” Company” the technical specialists of “Rudgormash” made their reports on the new developments in sphere of concentrating equipment, aligning modern technologies, materials and components as a part of the process of production.
Many secialists represented their companies at this seminar,they were from the mining and gold-mining companies, utilizing “Rudgormash” equipment at their enterprises, such as OJSC “Lebedinskiy GOK”, “Sibirskiy Antracite”, OJSC “Mikhailovskiy GOK”, “Eurazholding”, “Kachkanarskiy GOK”, “Apatite” and many others.
Dense business programme of the seminar included the reports of the technical specialists of “Rudgormash” Company and the reports of our company’s boundary partners’ (“Bakor” Company, “OVITECH”, “Engineering filter” Company).
At the beginning of the event, Vadim V. Kuleshenko, General director of LLC “Concentrating Equipment”, pointed out that LLC “Concentrating Equipment”, notwithstanding the fact of the company’s not long existence, is an enterprise, specializing in production and developing of the concentrating equipment. He also stated that the company continues “Rudgormash” prime traditions of machine building and disposes high-qualification staff.
-Notable part of the concentrating equipment (about 80%) is produced according to the definite customer’s demands, that means we produce equipment as per the technical requirements of the certain customer. What we do – is maximum accordance to all the requirements of the customer,- he said.
A.A. Svertkov, Chief Designer of LLC “Concentrating Equipment” told about the general lines of development and modernization:
- Our enterprise produces separators, light and heavy throw-screens, disc feeders, swinging feeders, vibration feeders and vacuum filters DOO and KDF. We also produce no less that 10 machines a year as New Equipment. The basis of its development is the research of the serial equipment operation at different technological limits the same as the analysis of the operation of the equipment of the other manufacturers. We consider the requests and recommendations of the experts of the concentrating enterprises, make our own research in sphere of the new methods of concentrating.
Most significant developments of the company for the last 5 years are the separators PBM of the 150/300 standard size; PBM-PP-150/300 standard size; double-drum separator PBM-150/300M13.
These model provide the highest capability and quality of separation process.
Package systems of concentration of smelter slags, including the vibration feeder-separator PBS, are a credit of our enterprise.
Usage of such packaged system by our customers (LLC “Avtogon”, Lipetsk), made possible to bring to processing the slags of 5-0 Class, which were never being processed before and due to that the productivity of the enterprise increased for 30 000 tun of the concentrate of 63/64% iron content per month.
A.A. Zatsepin, Chief of the Bureau of Throw-screens and Feeders:
-We are working at the projects of import phase-out, for example, we produce throw-screen GIT73P instead of Roxon MSO 2640, throw-screen GST82 instead of LF 3060D Sandvick and throw-screen GIST73P instead of GIST73 LEMZ”. In connection to the increased demand for the elliptic vibrations throw-screens of foreign manufacture (Ukraine), our enterprise is preparing to production of the “MM” series throw-screens of all typical sizes. The throw-screens can be maintained with in-built sprinlkling system through the bond timber in the upper level if it is necessary. Our enterprise also produces trammels on the basis of heavy-type throw-screens GIT.
The head of the design office of gravitation and dewatering machines Mr Novitskih spoke about vacuum filters upgrading:
- In vacuum filter design we apply progressive technologies of filter construction, we use modern polymeric materials. We constantly work on quality improvement of our products, in particular we offer a wide range of drives, foot valves, baths, control tools and other units with prove design. A major event was in this sector was the conjoin creation by NTTS “Bakor” and ZAO “Engineering Filter” of new domestically made vacuum filter with ceramic filtrating surface. Several filter models have already been manufactured and successfully operate. They differ in brand new engineering support of production process, unique technological characteristics and low power consumption.
The head of design office of electric drives and automatic control systems V.V. Kolyada told about concentrating equipment and vacuum filter control systems, and shared the results of magnetic separation development laboratory work performed by Zvegintsev, Doctor of Engineering Science:
- RUDGORMASH Company constantly conducts researches and project and design works regarding creation of new machinery and modernization of the manufactured equipment that allows to increase productivity and efficiency of ore and minerals concentrating process, to lower prime cost of the final product, to increase reliability of the machines and to improve operating conditions and servicing, - added up Vladimir Sharkhov.
No less interesting and vivid was the second part of the seminar during which particular items were discussed. Communication between customers and LLC “Concentrating equipment” experts allowed to take a number of technical questions off the table, to hear first hand the requirement of those who operate our concentrating equipment in real-life environment.
The primary results of such direct contact of producer and customer can already be seen. Thus Mikhailovskiy GOK representatives showed necessity for service support of vacuum filters, expressed their hopes for production and modernization of separator PBM-PP-120300 bath. “Satkinskaya TSOF” representatives showed their interest towards screening surfaces and adjusting elements for a throw-screen. Lebedinskiy GOK decided to perform test operation of the new separator for stepwise magnetite grading equipped with new magnetic system engineered by professor Zvegintsev A.G.
OJSC “Apatit” (OP AO “FosAgro-Cherepovets” representatives were interested in modernization of vacuum filters.
After the seminar we asked customer companies to share their opinion:
Sergey Kopanev, the chief engineer of OF Lebedinskiy GOK:
- We have longterm partnership with “Rudgormash”. Around one third of total separator population in our enterprise is of Rudgormash brand. The previous suppliers proved to be unreliable so we have been purchasing from you exclusively for the last 3-4 years. The human factor contributes to it greatly. You have competent experts working for your company that know trade. Speaking about our plans for the future, our main purpose is to renew our population of separators. Of course, a lot will depend on investments, but we have included in our plans 60 separators for the coming 2017-2018 years. You have mentioned about the new separator with combined drive… That is very interesting!
Sergey Makushev, the main expert in concentration at Evrazholding Kachkanarskiy GOK (EVRAZ KGOK):
I have known Rudgormash since I stated my professional experience in Kazakhstan for Sokolovsko-Sarbaiskiy GOK in 1997. The first time I visited Rudgormassh was when our first vacuum filter was manufactured. I was greatly impressed: Rudgormash is a grand, powerful enterprise capable of manufacturing respectable equipment, taking into consideration all technical requirements of a customer, and polish it. After all these years I have not changed my opinion. Any enterprise strives for profitability and economy… We also have active loss control policy, therefore we are interested in separators with tailings cleaning, which were represented today because we are interested in “ low rock refuse” separators. We know that the quality of your equipment is very high therefore we will continue our cooperation.
