Metalloinvest has completed the replacement of magnetic separators at the beneficiation plant at Andrey Varichev Mikhailovsky GOK. This project was implemented as part of the Company's large-scale modernisation and technical re-equipping programme to increase the enterprise’s production volumes. Replacing the single-drum magnetic separators with more modern and efficient ones will enable an increase in iron ore concentrate production by 10,200 tonnes per year. In the course of six months, 23 separators were replaced at the beneficiation plant. The new equipment is produced domestically and used for beneficiation by wet magnetic separation. Their distinctive features are increased reliability, as well as an ease of use and maintenance. The design of PMB PP-120/300 separators makes it possible to reposition the magnetic systems, creating an optimal operating mode.
The dismantling of the old separators and installation of new ones, each weighing more than five tonnes, was carried out by the plant's mechanical repair team.
