Applications

Flotation Cells

Flotation Cells

Reliable level control is critical in flotation cells to maximize mineral recovery. The DFPI proportional linear actuator provides accurate and fine control of the dart valve to ensure optimal results, while also being tough enough to withstand the harsh environment due to IP65, IP67, and IP69K protection options.
Hydrocyclones

Hydrocyclones

Festo can provide both a complete integrated control system enclosed in a cabinet, along with the knife gate valve assemblies for hydrocyclone process control.

Damper Actuation

Damper Actuation

DSBG and DFPI pneumatic cylinders can be used for damper actuation. From small to very large dampers, Festo offers a full range of actuator sizes to meet the torque requirements.

Membrane Water Filtraton

Membrane Water Filtration

Ultrafiltration, Nanofiltration, and Reverse Osmosis membrane filtration systems are prevalent in the mining industry, for both process makeup water and tailings treatment prior to discharge. Festo provides complete control systems for such membrane skids, including process valve assemblies, I/O and pneumatic valve terminals, air preparation, control cabinets, tubing, and fittings.

Coal Plough Control

Coal Plough Control

Optimal control over filling of rail cars from coal ploughs save time and money. DFPI proportional linear actuators have been successful in consistently providing complete and maximum fills on rail cars.
