The design and the construction of a SAG mill shell constitutes a major first one for the Drulingen site. With an external diameter of 11 meters, a length of 2 meters and a weight of 47.6 tonnes, this new shell is particularly impressive!
This will replace the shell of an existing SAG mill. This type of grinder is widely used in the mineral processing industry to recover and crush iron ore.
The shell is to be installed in Minnesota - USA. It has been therefore fabricated according to American Welding Society (AWS) standards.
The design of this shell enables the metal business to expand into a new market: Mineral Processing.
