Escondida Copper Mine - Chile

Transvac provided Doosan Enpure with a mobile dosing system designed to transfer granular anthracite into seawater filtration vessels. The package included a specialist paint finish due to the package’s end destination, a hostile coastal environment in Chile.

The manually operated package included a volumetric screw feeder system with control panel. It was designed to transfer 3m3/h of solids from single use bulk bags to a Transvac wetting hopper.

An additional booster pump skid with control panel and valves etc was included to provide the necessary motive fluid for the system.
