Norilsk Nickel. Project «Reducing the costs associated with the use of leaching autoclaves». Presented by Denis Tsymbalov , Deputy Head of Production Qualification Assessment and Certification Center.
When processing concentrates of non-ferrous and precious metals, there is an increased wear of the mixing devices inside the leaching autoclaves. By applying TRIZ method, it was decided to use a different way of material supply, eradicating the need for mixing devices. The new supply route from the bottom of the apparatus creates ascending flows, which oxidize the concentrate. As a result, the costs are reduced by 1 million euros annually.
