Southern Kuzbass (part of Mechel Group) upgrades the equipment of the central dressing plant “Siberia”. Upon the technical re-equipment program, there was purchased a pump of about 6 million roubles in value for dehydration of coal concentrate before drying.
The liquid ring vacuum pump is installed in the enrichment shop and is designed for primary dewatering of the concentrate, which is then sent to thermal drying.
The new pump is more productive: it generates up to 300 cubic meters of air per minute, and it also reduces energy costs. Seven pumps operate at the central processing plant “Siberia” all in all. There used two, three or more pumps depending on coal grade.
“The new equipment will allow ensuring stable operation of production and reducing production costs,” managing director of “Southern Kuzbass” V.Skulditsky said.
