MIP Process Technologies design considerations
MIP Process Technologies has a team of experienced engineers who are experts in the design, manufacture, and supply of process equipment. “In our design, we consider not only clients’ process data, but also the long-term mechanical performance, maximum circuit efficiency, availability and minimised operating costs,” says Hoff.
The product range includes clarifiers and thickeners; linear screens; attrition scrubbers; flocculant plants; mixers and agitators; slurry samplers; progressive cavity pumps; lime preparation plants; and reagent make-up plants. Design considerations include test work capability, accurate sizing for capability and ability to monitor.
With an African footprint that includes Botswana, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Ghana, Lesotho, Mali, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe, MIP Process Technologies continuously increases its product range in line with the latest worldwide business trends.
The company’s global footprint has seen successful installations in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Canada, North America, Russia, and Turkey. MIP’s growth and success is attributable to a sound knowledge of the industry, backed by experienced technical staff who are well-equipped to provide the most extensive and latest recommendations in agitation; attritioning; clarification and thickening; mixing; sampling; pumping; and flocculation processes using an innovative approach to customising new solutions for new challenges.
