Conveying Rare-Earth Elements

Meeting demand for REE and other critical minerals

Meeting the challenges of critical mineral and REE handling

Global demand is ramping up quickly for rare-earth elements (REE) and other critical minerals. Reliability and availability are paramount, and it’s essential to maintain product integrity and purity of these highly valuable metals and minerals. How can mining operations optimise minerals and metals conveying when the powders, granules and flakes are sensitive to environment and easily contaminated? 

An aero-mechanical conveyor (AMC) using FloDisc® Technology is a rapid, gentle, and safe way to transfer rare-earth metals and critical minerals. Our tubular drag conveyor (TDC) is ideal for complex routes and multiple discharge points. Floveyor’s fully enclosed designs are engineered to mitigate the risk of contamination and maximise uptime and availability. Floveyor conveying systems require little maintenance and provide total batch transfers with negligible residue. Floveyor delivers reliably high throughputs without damaging the delicate structure of REEs and critical minerals.
