BC bulk handling valve extends the time between maintenance shutdowns and reduces maintenance costs

One of the biggest copper and uranium mine in the world relies on our BC bulk handling valve for its Cemented Aggregate Fill plant surge bins. The mine is made up of underground and surface operations and operates a fully integrated processing facility from ore to metal Sub level open stopping has been the mining method of choice since operations started Once the stopes are mined out they are backfilled with either unconsolidated rock fill or a mixture of aggregate and binder as Cemented Aggregate Fill (CAF).

CAF surge bin outlet valves needed to be replaced to extend time between maintenance shutdowns and reduce valve and maintenance costs by also extending valve life cycle. ORBINOX AVK Flow Control and Customer’s engineering team worked together to design and manufacture a special reliable valve solution.
