Sepro Mineral Systems Corp is now offering an enhancement in design for the Semi-Batch 5200B Falcon Concentrator rotor bowl lining. The LSP insert has demonstrated significantly improved wear resistance during equipment operation. After a recent and extensive six-month R&D project, it was confirmed through field trial testing that the LSP insert provided greater wear resistance over rubber and ceramic lining under harsh wear conditions.Gerry Barstad, Chief Metallurgist – Detour Gold – explains: “Detour Gold ore has extremely aggressive wear characteristics for processing equipment and piping so we originally specified ceramic tile lining in our SB5200B Falcon Concentrators and associated piping. Sepro offered to develop an improved rotor bowl lining system to help extend wear life and reduce operating costs. The resulting moulded rubber Lower Strike Point insert ring is lasting about one-and-a-half to two times longer than the original ceramic tiles and knocks into place without removing the bowl. It effectively relines the lower bowl impact wear area very quickly and has demonstrated significant improvement in wear and reduced maintenance costs.I would highly recommend the new LSP Insert lining system for Falcon 5200B Concentrators to other gravity gold recovery operations.”Sepro is making the LSP insert available to all current Falcon SB5200B owners as a low cost retro-fit parts package. All new SB5200B units sold will incorporate this latest enhancement as the design standard. Sepro is developing plans to release the LSP Insert for the SB2500B Falcon model in the near future.
