Metso Outotec has signed a collaboration deal with Malvern Panalytical to bring sensor-based bulk ore sorting solutions to the mining industry as both focus on their mutual top goal of sustainability.
The pairing combines the companies’ expertise in crushing and bulk material handling solutions and ore analyzers and, with the offering, mining customers can significantly improve head grade by preconcentrating the ore at the crushing stage – thereby reducing energy consumption and related environmental footprint at the comminution stage.
”Sustainability is a top priority for our entire industry. Collaboration with partners like Malvern Panalytical will allow us to meet the industry’s increasing sustainability and resource efficiency needs in an enhanced way in the early comminution stage,” said Rashmi Kasat, vice president of Digital Technologies.
“Sensor-based bulk ore sorting and data-driven analysis upgrades low-grade or waste stockpiles, making them economical and far less energy-intensive to treat.”
Jarmo Lohilahti, sales manager at Malvern Panalytical, added: “Malvern Panalytical’s cross-belt analyzers provide high-frequency online data for cost-efficient bulk material analysis of major commodities. This collaboration enables customers to benefit from the in-depth know-how of both companies.”
