SALT LAKE CITY – DORR-OLIVER EIMCO, the Process Group of the Canadian-based company GROUPE LAPERRIERE & VERREAULT, was recently awarded a contract from CAPITAL EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY CORP. (CETCO) to supply filtration equipment for JV MINING CORP.’s Erdenet mine in Mongolia.
CETCO is an intermediary company that supplies mining equipment and services to the mining industry primarily in the old Soviet block countries. The Dorr-Oliver Eimco equipment to be installed includes one M1500 AFP IV filter press with controls and accessories. The filter press will be equipped with 77 chambers providing high throughput and efficient solids capture all done continuously and automatically.
This new order becomes the second AFP filter press to be supplied to the Erdenet mine by Dorr-Oliver Eimco. The first unit was commissioned in July of 2005 and quickly provided excellent results at lower operating costs. With this success, the second unit is scheduled for installation at the end of 2006. Both filters will produce a total of 2,160 tonnes/day copper concentrates with final moisture of less than 9.0%.
