Mining Industry Valves
The mining industry is traditionally a heavy user of RF pinch, slurry and tailings handling valves because of the highly abrasive nature of metal concentrates. We have proven success using our air release valves in this same environment in slurry and tailings applications as well as leaching processes. Other common valve applications are lime addition, mineral laden process and dilution waters, and a variety of specialty applications such as pneumatic conveying of dry concentrates.
RF VALVES serves many mining companies around the world: BHP Billiton, Placer Dome, Kennecott, Codelco, Barrick Gold, IMCO, Phelps Dodge, Magnetation, Pasminco Mining, LKAB, Freeport-McMoran, Southern Peru Copper, Mexicana de Cobre, Asarco, Volcan/Alpamarca, Chelyabinsk Zinc, Simplot Phosphates, Sierra Gorda Chile, Buena vista del Cobre, Grupo Penoles and Grupo Carso, to name a few.
