SALT LAKE CITY, USA (July 17, 2006) - Dorr-Oliver Eimco, the Process Group of the Canadian-based company Groupe Laperrière & Verreault Inc., was recently awarded a contract from Capitol Equipment and Technology Corporation (CETCO) to supply filtration equipment for JV Mining Corporation’s Erdenet Mines site in Mongolia.
CETCO is an intermediary company which supplies mining equipment and services to the mining industry primarily in the old Soviet block countries. The Dorr-Oliver Eimco equipment to be installed includes one (1) M1500 AFP™ IV Filter Press with controls and accessories. The filter press will be equipped with 77 chambers providing high throughput and efficient solids capture all done continuously and automatically.
This new order becomes the second AFP Filter Press to be supplied to Erdenet Mine by Dorr-Oliver Eimco. The first AFP unit was commissioned in July of 2005 and proved quickly its superior process performance by providing excellent results at lower operating costs. With this noted success, the second unit is scheduled for installation at the end of 2006. Both filters will produce a total of 2160 m.t.p.d. copper concentrates with a final moisture of less than nine percent.
