FLSmidth has signed an agreement to acquire the privately owned company Decanter Machine, Inc., a United States based manufacturer and supplier of centrifugal technology to the global minerals industries. Decanter is recognised as the global leader in the manufacture of screen bowl, solid bowl and hyperbaric centrifuges for minerals applications. Decanter‘s product and service range further includes rotor unit repairs, spare parts, field service and preventative maintenance. The company is primarily active within the coal industry and in the processing of fertilizer mineral potash. With the acquisition of Decanter, FLSmidth complements the coarse particle centrifuge technology recently acquired with the Australian company Ludowici.
