Schenck Process and Sandvik Mining have signed a global partnership agreement. The partnership provides increased crushing circuit productivity for Schenck Process double and single deck high capacity banana screens (Fig. 1) and Sandvik high productivity cone crushers (Fig. 2). It also enables a single service provider approach to support customers throughout the entire plant life cycle. Schenck Process Business Unit Minerals & Metals is a leading supplier of solutions for screening applications in mining. Sandvik has a reputation as a leading supplier of crushers and crushing technologies. This cooperation provides in-depth understanding of mining customers’ equipment, together with process knowledge will enable them to raise their crushing plant performance. The agreement covers both new crushing and screening plants and replacements.
“This partnership agreement allows our customers to raise their overall crushing and screening plant productivity by focusing on process efficiency in its entirety, as opposed to individual pieces of equipment,” comments Mary Verschuer, President Minerals & Metals, Schenck Process Group. “In terms of replacements, Sandvik’s high productivity cone crushers and Schenck Process’s high capacity banana screens have a compact footprint, thus allowing for cost effective upgrades using existing infrastructure. 20-30 % productivity increases can be achieved within the existing infrastructure,” says Jonas Olsson, Vice President Crushing and Screening, Sandvik Mining.
