Gypsum Processing Equipment

Gypsum Processing Equipment

The gypsum processing equipment is currently operating and can produce up to 300 tons of copper a year from tailings and acid mine waters which are considered a waste product of the mine. The plant processes about 25 m3 per hour of acid mine water and pre-treats the water to get rid of solids and unwanted contaminants.

The extracted copper powder is currently being re-refined in a local smelter which will have small amounts of moisture and other impurities removed. SBM is currently going through an incremental patent process since new feature additions have enabled a cheap process to upgrade the purity of the final copper powder from the current 95% to 98.5%, which is in demand in its own right as a powder.

gypsum Processing Plant Benefits

Portability: SBM has a low cost way of testing tailings waste and its applicability to out process anywhere in the world. Along with our consultants our containerised facility can be lorry loaded and shipped on to new sites to test the efficacy of a process and begin proof of concepts.

Cost-effective: One of the greatest problems of tailings copper extraction is the lack of economic viablity of the process itself. We have proven that the low extraction cost, including depreciation of equipment and amortisation of loans ensures that we are the cheapest and most viable solution around. Additionally, we boast the largest throughput to extracted copper ratio of any other solution both practical and conceptual.

gypsum Recycling Plant

For thousands of years, copper slag and gypsum have been recycled. This has been a normal economic practice, even if regretted sometime. Copper slag is an abrasive blasting grit made of granulated slag from metal smelting processes. After proper processing and recycling, the gypsum will be renewable for new applications.

SBM is global supplier and manufacturer of recycling and processing equipment. We provide various types of crushing, grinding, beneficiation and recycling plants for mining industry, construction, highway, railway etc. The copper tailing processing equipment for sale includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, ball mill, vertical roller mill, classifier, screening machine, separation machine, processing plant etc. Please contact us for detailed information. We will design best solution for you.
