Multotec Group’s presence at Electra Mining Africa will reflect its current marketing theme – ‘The right ingredients for the perfect mix’ – with a comprehensive showcase of process and materials handling equipment, services and technical know-how, as well as existing, new and value-added technology.
The group will be exhibiting from a 220 m² indoor stand, as well as an outside stand adjacent to Hall 6 featuring several working demonstrations from its equipment line-up. Product experts will be on hand for one-on-one information sessions and to demonstrate the group’s technical capabilities. Representatives from Multotec’s extensive field service maintenance crew, offering 24/7 maintenance services throughout South Africa and moving into Africa, will also be available for discussion with interested parties.
“We look forward every second year to Electra as an ideal opportunity to build relationships with new and existing customers,” Multotec Group’s Bernadette Wilson says. “We’re going all out to prove that we’re a young, energetic, reliable and highly innovative company to do business with.”
Never seen before
Never seen before at the show will be a working demonstration of Multotec’s self-driven trommel, a well-proven trommel for high capacity screening applications, as well as the latest version of the company’s sievebend, manufactured from HDPE. This corrosion- and abrasion-resistant sievebend presents a lightweight and cost-effective alternative to the steel version. The stand will also feature a range of panels that are process specific in their application. The revolutionary Multotec polyurethane Teepee panel will be displayed. Injection-moulded rubber screen panels will be shown for the first time.
The process team will unveil another new product at Electra: Multotec’s new cast iron CL115 cyclone, developed specifically for the coal industry to combat the tramp iron, which is damaging to traditional ceramic linings. The existing Multotec AA165 cyclone, suitable for high-wear areas, will make another appearance this year, alongside a fully operational mobile pilot spirals plant, differentiated for its application to heavy minerals. This is a simple plug-and-play container plant that makes for easy shipping.
Multotec’s Cy-i suite of cyclone sizing and selection software suite, developed to equip customers with a scientific approach to making the initial selection of a cyclone for any given application, will also be demonstrated.
“We’re investing in continuous research and development (R&D) that embraces computational fluid dynamics simulations, pilot plant and online test work to improve the metallurgical performance of our process equipment,” Wilson says. “Our ongoing research has resulted in several innovations across the board and we will showcase some of the results of the latest R&D on our stand this year.
“Among these developments is a prototype pressurised slurry line sampler that is poised to replace the traditional off-take sampler. In addition, changes have been introduced to the Multotec overbelt magnet’s power supply and transformer unit, and further changes are in the pipeline to make the unit more cost effective to our customers.”
The latest version of the company’s CX1200 fine coal centrifuge joins the line-up, with a focus on its capabilities in the coal arena.
Multotec’s rubber offering is focused on the high impact resilience of rubber to benefit applications subject to impact of material. A range of rubber wear components will be exhibited, including a robust heavy-duty lifter bar that delivers long life. A range of fit-for-purpose rubber grate plates suitable for a broad spectrum of customer needs will form part of the display, together with a new magnetic wear plate, sold under license to Multotec’s sister company Tema, based in the US, featuring an advanced liner design that boosts plant efficiency.
Wear-resistant ceramic liners will be showcased using an innovative model that displays all the various liner applications in a plant.
Mato Products South Africa, a partnership between Multotec and Mato Germany producing industry-leading conveyor belt fastening solutions, celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and a delegation from this German company will be visiting the stand to celebrate the event.
As part of its social economic development programme, Multotec has engaged Vuka Designs, a welding company owned and operated by previously disadvantaged South Africans, to manufacture decorative welded products that will form part of the stand’s decor.
“We’ve got some really exciting treats planned for our visitors this year, so we encourage all existing and potential customers to register for EMA online prior to the opening day, for ease of entrance and to qualify them to enjoy an unforgettable Multotec experience,” says Wilson.
