Providing routine maintenance in a mill plant while reducing production costs is an issue that those who experience working in a mill are faced with daily. Moreover, the ambition to get ever larger and better-performing plants, as well as making the most of the economy of scale while continuing to manage one’s everyday life and work practices in a simple way, is one more challenge that has led Ocrim experts to provide solutions that can fully meet these kinds of requests.
Nowadays, in many countries of the world, there is indeed a trend towards establishing increasingly higher capacity plants, which can be easily implemented with today’s cutting-edge technologies.
A long time ago, talking about mills with a 500-tonne-per-day (tpd) capacity seemed more like a pipe dream. Today, with a view to meeting large production requirements in various areas of the world, Ocrim can design and manufacture 1200 tpd capacity plants.
This trend is definitely justified by lower initial capital expenditures (CAPEX), with respect to the same potential being obtained in several sections. As a matter of fact, the cost per tonne of a plant will decrease as its capacity increases, since all plant equipment can be optimised, thus avoiding any “potential waste.”
However, the benefits related to energy consumption savings and the use of human resources are very important...Read more.
