Micronics Engineered Filtration Receives Order from Gammon Gold for Fully Automatic Filter Press

The highly successful LASTA mining concentrate (MC) filter press distributed by Micronics is successfully dewatering mine tailings and mineral concentrates throughout the world. A proven workhorse in extreme environments operating 24/7, there are over 100 machines in service worldwide, many with over 20 years of trouble-free operation.

The recent repeat order for a LASTA MC filter press from Gammon Gold, Mexico increases the company’s existing capacity by 34% and will be installed in mid 2010.

Ishigaki’s Sakaide, Japan factory designs and produces the LASTA MC; a technology which plays such an important role for the reliable economic dewatering of mineral concentrates and for sustainable practices handling mine tailings. Ishigaki filter presses are known for their ability to filter short cycles and discharge filter cakes faster than conventional machines.

Ishigaki is the only present manufacturer of fully automatic filters capable of running operator-free on mining and industrial process sites utilising two novel methods of handling the filter cake discharge – the MC for mining applications and SD model for process applications.

Three large, heavy-duty models are offered: 1.5m x 2m, 2.1m x 2.1m and 2.1m x 2.9m plate size, providing optimum sizing opportunities that will dewater tailings to 14% moisture and mineral concentrates to optimal 8% cake moisture.
