TENKE UPGRADE PROJECT
Roymec Technologies were recently awarded the contract for the supply of SX Dual Media Filters for the next phase of
the Freeport-Mcmoran's Inc (FMI) Tenke Fungurume Upgrade project in the DRC. This on the back of the previous supply
of SX filters to the first phase of the plant in 2007.
FMI is the world's largest publicly traded copper producing company, with operations across the globe.
As part of the second phase, they are expanding the mill rate to 14,000 metric tons of ore per day (mtd) and are
constructing related processing facilities that would target the addition of approximately 150 million pounds of
copper per year.
MORE THICKENERS FOR MALAYSIA
Roymec are supplying two more thickener units for projects in Malaysia through Malaysian company PWA SDN BHD based in
Kuala Lumpur. Roymec have an agreement with PWA for the supply of Roymec equipment into the Far East Asian markets.
Some components of the units will be fabricated in Malaysia under PWA supervision, with full design and oversight from
Roymec Technologies in Johannesburg.
The past two years has seen Roymec complete several innovative product development milestones but by far our greatest
efforts have been spent on intensive research and development on thickener technology, and we are launching a new thickener
feedwell (RADFLOWTM) technology into the market.
Having employed the services of a Wits University post-graduate, who is not directly involved in the mining industry Roymec
believes Dr Alexei Krassnokutski has brought an entirely novel approach to thickeners and to feedwell design and
The more efficient feedwell design means that thickeners could operate close to the average flocculant settling rate measured
during testwork. This is equivalent to saying that a traditional (current) thickener could be replaced with a thickener of
almost half the area when utilising the RADFLOWTM feedwell. The RADFLOWTM feedwell is set to revolutionise the current thickener
offering in the market place.
