Delkor recently achieved mechanical completion of seven thickeners, a flocculation system, and a pinned bed clarifier (PBC), a unit used for hydrometallurgical plants where solution clarity is important, at a Moroccan silver leaching plant.
The thickeners will form part of the plant's counter current decantation (CCD) circuit, which helps recover precious metals from gangue by washing the slurry in multiple thickeners.
Delkor was in charge of the design, fabrication and supply of all of the equipment, while also supervising the installation. It also offers a performance guarantee.
"As the industry specialist in sedimentation, Delkor offers a range of thickeners and clarifiers catering to various applications across the minerals, chemical, industrial and water management industries with designs of up to 100m in diameter," said Ramesh Mahadevan, managing director of Delkor India.
"Successful handover of this important project only serves to strengthen our capabilities in the North African region."
