Mining expertise

Festo’s actuation and control solutions are currently in operation on more than 300 flotation cells across the globe, where they have been shown to increase metal and mineral yield by as much as 10 per cent or more compared with the conventional solution. The company also supplies automation solutions for hydrocyclone process control, damper actuation, automated control of water filtration systems, coal plough control, and other applications.

Solutions on display

Visitors to the booth will be able to see a filtration tank with dart valves controlled by DFPI NB3s, the new Festo linear actuator with optional integrated position controller. The precise positioning of dart valves by DFPI actuators produces greater yield and higher profitability for mining operations.

The display will also feature automated angle seat valves, NAMUR valves, and butterfly, ball and knife gate valve assemblies for automated control of liquids and gases in water filtration, flotation cells and hydrocyclone systems. The booth will also feature the innovative MPA-L modular, expandable valve terminal and the company’s powerful CPX industrial automation platform.
