Nickel is the fifth most abundant element on our planet. Iron is more common, and there’s plainly more oxygen around. As for iron and aluminium, silica and carbon, these top ten materials all have their place. Their roles in the industrial world are all instantly recognizable. So, what’s nickel’s role? And why is nickel mining […]

Was there ever a time when mining equipment was primitive? Presumably so, but that time has long since vanished into the past. Take vibrating screens as one example of the modern era. The screens don’t simply quiver and shake at random. On the contrary, the technologically advanced vibrational mechanisms oscillate in a precisely controlled manner. […]

In mining equipment, all vibrating screens use some form of kinetic excitation. Linearly casting ore up and forward, freely vibrating screens use a simple excitation mechanism, plus gravity to move material, at which point the undersize is processed and the screening operation continues. Sets of springs reinforce the linear movement. Opting out of this linear […]

Rich in combustible carbon, mountains of coal once powered the steam engines that energized the industrial revolution. Even today, Australians enjoy their home comforts because 73% of all generated electrical power comes from this burnable mineral. Down below the ground, deep inside an underground mine, that coal seam sure is kicking up a lot of […]

When differently sized mineral loads need dynamic sorting, mining equipment manufacturers are on-site to recommend a best-in-class solution. The company representative talks about vibrating screens, but there’s no end to the different options. Working on contrasting operational principles, the list of equipment includes flywheels and counterbalances, plus scores of other potential configurations. Let’s hustle on […]

Brute force vibrating pan feeders are extraordinarily robust. Just look at the large horsepower motors, the steel-reinforced feeder troughs, and the larger-than-life springs. They’re built tough, as heavy machinery marketers like to say. All the same, it only takes an exceptionally heavy shock load, moving at speed, to cause damage. Now, limping along, the equipment’s […]

Built from extra heavy-duty parts, with materials that are as durable as they are flawlessly designed, vibrating grizzly feeders chew their way through first-cut discharges of boulder-like rock. Its frame is steel-reinforced, made from I-beams that support a vibrating frame. Strangely enough, that frame doesn’t come in contact with the feeder bucket; there‚Äôs a group […]

Two-mass vibratory systems are built to carry out heavy-duty actions onboard dynamic screening decks. There’s reciprocating motion going on inside the mining equipment. It’s so finely tuned and realized that the feed aggregate streaming through this brute force machine replacement can safely increase threefold. That’s a bold claim, one that can’t be properly confirmed until […]

According to engineering dictionaries, mechanism-based turnkey solutions are defined as those that are implemented as end-to-end systems. Everything that’s required to make the equipment productive is preinstalled and prepped to begin its processing duties. In mining parlance, the equipment beneficiation work can commence. Equipment accuracy is the third member of the mining trio. The end-to-end […]

The purpose of this post is to demonstrate the capabilities of stone crushing equipment. In particular, we wish to study the different crusher types and discover how each form factor impacts mining efficiency. Keep in mind, mining complexes can’t carry out their screening duties unless every single featureless stone is neatly broken down. Processed by […]
