Flowsheet Development & Plant Design

Grinding Solutions offers mineral processing design solutions that can be applied during flowsheet development and new plant design as well as to the design of expansions for existing plants. Technical knowledge and expertise gained working internationally enhances our concepts in process design and flow sheet development.

The company adds values to cost effective and environmentally friendly processing routes through its strong global relationships with mineral processing equipment suppliers. We are committed to reducing capital and operating expenditure over all areas of mineral processing plant design and the environmental impact.

Flowsheet modelling is used to simulate process flows and mass balances as well as giving indicative process costs.

The comprehensive laboratory facilities are often used at both bench and pilot scale for verification of process design and flowsheet development. Please click here to see a detailed review of our laboratory capabilities.
