Process reliability and productivity

Valmet is an established and trusted name in mining, metals and steel processing around the world. Our expanded offering of solutions and services for minerals and metallurgical applications is now more complete than ever: from reliable Neles™, Jamesbury™ and Flowrox™ valves to robust Flowrox pumps and intelligent Valmet DNA, the integrated automation and information management systems.

Common challenges in mining and minerals processing

When handling abrasive slurries, reliability of the equipment is essential for economics and safety of the operations. Mining, minerals processing and steel all have demanding process conditions. As it comes down to flow control and isolation for mining and other similar processes, it is crucial to carefully choose reliable equipment which guarantees continuity of the production process.

The initial price of a valve or pump is only the starting point. Most costs are generated during operation in terms of required maintenance, equipment spare parts, possible downtime and interference of process. Minor equipment breaks can quickly escalate to major issues, especially in remote locations.
