Minerals Processing Technologies

MPTEQ provides specialised processing equipment to the minerals processing industry. The range of equipment offered includes High Rate Thickeners, Flocculant Plants, Attrition Scrubbers, Solvent Extraction, Gold Elution Plants, Dissolved Air Flotation, rapid Leach systems and water treatment plants.

All our thickeners and equipment designs are certified and signed off by a registered professional engineer as are our design drawings. We specify and install only proven mechanical, electrical and instrumentation borne out by the fact that our personnel have never had a single failure despite having over fifty thickeners installed globally.

News

MPTEQ is currently operating the tailings thickener, flocculant plant and filter press plant that they supplied and installed at Canyon Coal’s Khanye Colliery near Bronkhorstspruit.

MPTEQ visited the Thickener, flocculant plant and filter press plant treating the tailings at Rainbow Rare Earth’s plant in Burundi to assess the operation and advise ways to increase throughput.

We continue to support and supply spares for all the equipment we have supplied over the past 19 years.

We have just delivered an elutriator to ERGO Gold Mine from our sister company QVA Process Technologies (Pty) Ltd that specialises in elutriators. ( These machines have a number of names these days from the original Stokes Hydrosizer, Teetered bed Separators, etc.).

Projects

MPTEQ is currently operating the tailings thickener, flocculant plant and filter press plant that they supplied and installed at Canyon Coal’s Khanye Colliery near Bronkhorstspruit. We are currently building a 10-meter diameter High Rate Thickener for an upgrade to a tin mine in the DRC. The unit has a feed dilution system fitted and has a fully bolted design (as do most of our thickners these days). The Thickener will be delivered in November 2020.

MPTEQ is developing a fine mineral separation device that uses ultrasound. Initial prototypes have proved very encouraging.

MPTEQ has, over the last 5 years been involved in the process development of the process for a new South African Graphite plant. Flake qualities up to 99% graphitic content are planed.
