AFROMIX was requested to provide replacement agitators for a plant that was experiencing severe process and mechanical problems.
Following a site visit to assess the problems, an order was given for the replacement of all 12 CIL agitators. Because of the severity of the problems highlighted, a delivery of six months was requested – three months shorter than the quoted delivery. All 12 agitators were delivered on time, with AFROMIX assisting in the transport of all components to site by air – a total consignment weight of 100 tons. Following installation, the plant reported improved extraction of between 88% – 92%. The units supplied were the largest Gold Leach agitators in Africa.
