Mineral Separation and Screening

Customised Training Course

The WA State Manager of Elastomers Australia saw a requirement for his local Perth as well as Melbourne based staff members to undertake training in Mineral Separation and Screening to improve their understanding of the metallurgical language, industry phases and physical and chemical principles of mineral separation for 10 of their staff.

METS devised a customised 1 day training course for Elastomers Australia that was held in our training facilities in the heart of Perth CBD – conveniently accessible for the local staff and those that had flown in for the course.

The topics and presenters were carefully selected to best cater for Elastomer’s unique training needs and backed up with real life examples, group discussions, calculations and relevant case studies.


Project Brief

Elastomers Australia

Outcome

  • Enhanced confidence in the physical and chemical principles of mineral separation
  • Improved communication between the end users of Elastomer screens and Elastomer staff
  • In depth understanding of the process behind selection of various screens

Background

Elastomers Australia are an Australian owned company who provide the mining and mineral processing industries with customized screening solutions.
They engineer, manufacture and provide specialist screens to suit a wide variety of process plants that operate in applications such as mill discharge, raw coal, wet fine, scalping and many other heavy duty applications. Commodities covered include iron ore, coal, nickel, copper, gold, uranium, tin, lead, alumina, zinc, bauxite, cobalt, limestone, mineral sands, manganese and other mineral processing plants.

Project Objectives

Being in close contact with operators requiring screening products, the objective of the course was to enhance delegate’s understanding of metallurgical language, industry phrases and terms, the process behind the selection of various screens and gaining an appreciation of screening equipment, flowsheets, associated processes and equipment.

Challenges

The staff had varying levels of industry experience and exposure to mining and screening in the past. The course was developed closely keeping in mind the objectives and aligning content and delivery to the different needs of delegates in achieving those objectives.
