Maximize efficiency with equipment and services for phosphate mining

Optimize the extraction processes with equipment that ensures precise crushing, controlled grinding, efficient separation, and effective flotation, resulting in improved phosphate recovery rates, reduced waste, and enhanced overall efficiency. By achieving optimal processing conditions, mining operations can extract phosphate minerals more efficiently, maximizing resource utilization and minimizing environmental impact.

The Manufacturing Process

Create economies of scale across your system

Each of these stages requires specific types of industrial rotating equipment, and proper operation and maintenance of this equipment is crucial for the efficiency and safety of the mineral mining industry.


Rotary drills, equipped with a rotating drill bit, are used to bore holes into the earth to reach phosphate deposits. These drills are used both for exploration and extraction.


Equipment like rotating wheel excavators are used to extract phosphate rock from open-pit mines.

Crushing & Grinding

Once phosphate rock is extracted, it often needs to be crushed or ground into smaller pieces for further processing. This process involves the use of rotating crushers and grinding mills.


Screening equipment, which can include rotating parts, is used to separate the crushed and ground phosphate rock into different size fractions.


Conveyors, which may include rotating parts such as conveyor pulleys or idlers, are used to transport extracted phosphate rock around the mining site and to processing facilities.


This is the process of improving the quality of the phosphate ore by removing impurities. It often involves processes like washing, flotation, calcination, and magnetic separation, which can use rotating equipment.


After beneficiation, phosphate ore often needs to be dewatered. This process can involve rotating equipment like centrifuges and rotary vacuum filters.


Rotary dryers are commonly used in the phosphate industry to reduce the moisture content of the phosphate rock after washing and before it is used for fertilizer production.


Pumps, which are a type of rotating equipment, are used extensively in mining to move slurries and other fluids around the site.

Maintenance & Cleaning

Rotating machinery like pressure washers can be used for cleaning and maintaining other mining equipment.
