MIP Process Technologies supplies equipment to global iron-ore giant

Minerals-processing equipment manufacturer MIP Process Technologies of Sandton, Johannesburg has established a successful collaboration with Ehya Sepahan Iron Ore Mines Company, which owns and operates the Sangan and Khaf mines.

Ehya Sepahan CEO Hadi Golzar and Technical and Planning Manager Saiwan Mohammadi were in South Africa recently to inspect the latest batch of equipment on order for the company. “We have a long-standing relationship with MIP Process Technologies, based on successfully exploiting the synergies between the two companies,” Golzar comments.

The latest equipment supplied comprises a 30 m thickener, three mixers (one large and two smaller units), and a flocculant plant. Equipment supplied previously to Ehya Sepahan was a 15 m thickener, two mixers, and five centrifugal pumps.

MIP Process Technologies Managing Director Philip Hoff explains that it provided installation guidelines for Ehya Sepahan, in addition to assisting with final commissioning. A slight modification required on a slew bearing channel received the necessary attention within 48 hours.

Commenting on conducting business with Iran, Hoff points out that MIP Process Technologies regularly supplies other parts of the world, and has an established global footprint. “Compared to the South African market, the Iranian market is slightly different in terms of its material specifications, while torque and capacity requirements are similar, in addition to specifying European standards.”

In terms of future prospects, Hoff says that MIP Process Technologies hopes to be a part of Ehya Sepahan’s expansion plans, which includes building a concentrate and pelletising plant. The company produces about four million tons a year of iron ore at present, of which half is consumed by the steel-making industry, and half exported to China.

MIP Process Technologies specialises in designing and manufacturing a range of thickeners and clarifiers. These include customised feedwell clarifiers, conventional units with low operating costs, high-rate thickeners with special feedwell designs, high-density thickeners with a deeper sidewell and a more robust design, paste thickeners, and ultra-high rate thickeners.

Units are available in diameters from 1 m to 90 m. ‘Off-the-shelf’ designs are available, while thickener tanks, rakes, and feedwells can be customised according to the feed conditions and raking capacity. A retrofit service is also offered to boost the performance of existing units.

Equipment is designed to operate 24/7, thereby increasing its cost-effectiveness. Process selections are based on testwork, in conjunction with MIP Process Technologies’ extensive experience in thickening. This ensures that all equipment meets the requirements of the application in question, taking into account safety and recognised international standards and practices.
