Our bulk material boxes may have been set up just recently in our pilot plant in the quarry – part of the IAM laboratories – but the next expansion is already in progress! While the preparations for our large series of investigations within the framework of the current AFK joint project are still in full swing, today two new purification machines from the HAVER ENGINEERING GmbH were delivered on site.

…but our crushers at the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines can do so much more than just prepare glitter balls 😉 and shred reindeer!
Not quite convinced yet? You are more then welcome to watch and witness our jaw, cone, roller, impact or hammer crushers at work on site in our IAM laboratories!
Apply for the upcoming winter term until 30 September and become one of our new pioneers! 😀
Finally the time has come: The construction work for our two new bulk material boxes in the pilot plant of the IAM in a nearby quarry is over; now, nothing stands in the way of researching into new strategies for the processing of native complex ores as part of the AFK joint project!

…especially if they are valuable Saxon ores! These contain high proportions of sulphides, cassiterite and fluorite minerals, which contain the economically important elements indium, copper, iron, tin and fluorine.
But how can these complex ores, which are demanding in their processing, be used in an economically and ecologically efficient manner? The AFK research project for the processing of fine-grained native complex ore deposits, of which the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines (IAM) of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg is a project partner, is currently working on this question. Continue reading “Even raw materials need a roof over their heads…”
Our Lego bricks in the form of concrete blocks might awake some fond childhood memories 😀 Yet they are a lot bigger and heavier! After all, two stable, new bulk material boxes are to be constructed for our pilot plant in order to store fine-grained complex ores!
The Institute of Mineral Processing Machines of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg participates as a partner in the AFK research project aimed at processing fine-grained native complex ore deposits. In particular, the already comprehensively developed deposits in the Western Ore Mountains are ideally suited for exploring new processing technologies for these complex, polymetallic ores, as their contents of the economically valuable elements zinc, tungsten, indium, fluorine and tin are particularly high.
However, there is still plenty of work to be done before the large-scale complex ore samples from the Tellerhäuser and Hämmerlein deposits can be safely stored in our test facility, since our concrete blocks cannot be put together quite as easily and quickly as Lego bricks 😉
