Orbinox UK offer valve and actuator control systems to suit aggressive applications within the mining industry such as acid and solvent extraction of metals, slurries and cooling systems.
The mining industry requires solutions that help make the mining and refining processes safer and more efficient. Due to the mining industries working conditions, applications are demanding. If the valve sealing is not tight enough, corrosion and wear during operation will cause the pipeline and valve to wear much more quickly. This increases the requirement for frequent maintenance is needed while the valve’s lifespan shortens.

Phosphoric Acid Tank Valve Solution
One of the largest fertilizer complex in the world relies on ORBINOX slurry knife gate valves for their phosphoric acid tanks.
After many blocking/clogging and sleeve wear problems, this company trusted ORBINOX for this strategic application.
ORBINOX WG heavy duty knife gate valves were placed in the phosphoric acid unit in the outlet of the tanks. In what they call the “attack tanks”.
Tailing Filter Press Valve Solutions
One of the largest beneficiation iron ore plants in Brazil relies on our slurry knife gate valves for their filter press process. This mine has its own filtering process where it has multiple filter presses.
Before ORBINOX HG valves were placed in, this mining company was facing some issues with its former valve supplier. Former valves couldn’t last more than 6 months. They asked ORBINOX for a solution that could work for at least 8 months and more than 12.000 cycles.
