Floveyor exhibits at AusIMM 2024 Critical Minerals Conference in Brisbane

Floveyor, the pioneer in aero-mechanical conveying technology, is heading to the upcoming AusIMM Critical Minerals Conference 2024. The event will take place from August 26 to August 28 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, where Floveyor will be exhibiting at Stand 55.

 

The aim of the conference is to push the conversation forward on mining and the critical minerals supply chain, both the urgent challenges and opportunities that currently exist in the industry. The event program features 52 live presentations from around the world, including six keynote speakers and three panel discussions.

Why Floveyor is attending Critical Minerals Conference 2024

As the global demand for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage continues to surge, the importance of efficient and contamination-free processing of critical minerals has never been greater. Floveyor’s innovative powder handling solutions are at the forefront of addressing the unique challenges faced by the critical minerals industry, particularly in midstream processing operations for battery minerals conveying.

Managing Director Rhys Walker emphasised why Floveyor is participating in this critical industry event:


“The Critical Minerals Conference provides an excellent opportunity for us to engage with key players in the critical minerals sector,” Rhys said.


“Our advanced conveying systems, particularly for materials like lithium hydroxide monohydrate (LiOH.H2O), lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) and nickel sulphate (NiSO4) are designed to meet the stringent requirements of this rapidly evolving industry.”

 

“We’re looking forward to discussing how our technology can optimise midstream processing and contribute to the growth of local battery mineral production capabilities.”

Floveyor’s cutting-edge solutions for critical minerals 

Visitors to Stand 55 will have the chance to explore Floveyor’s range of conveying solutions tailored for critical minerals processing, including:

 

  1. Aero-Mechanical Conveyors (AMC) with FloDisc® Technology: Engineered to provide gentle, efficient, and contamination-free conveying of sensitive battery mineral powders.
  2. Tubular Drag Conveyors: Ideal for complex routing and multiple discharge points in critical mineral processing plants.
  3. Bulk Material Handling Equipment: Complementary equipment, such as FIBC unloaders, lump breakers, and screw feeders, designed to integrate seamlessly with Floveyor’s conveying systems.

Addressing key industry challenges

The critical minerals industry faces unique challenges in materials handling, particularly when it comes to preserving product integrity and preventing contamination. Floveyor’s systems are specifically designed to address these concerns:

 

  • Minimal product degradation, preserving the crystalline structure of materials like H20.
  • Sealed systems that can be purged with inert gases to prevent exposure to air and moisture
  • Polymer-coated components to minimise the risk of ferrous contamination
  • High throughput capabilities with minimal maintenance requirements
  • Compact footprint, ideal for clean room environments.

Advancing midstream processing capabilities

As countries worldwide seek to develop local midstream processing operations for critical minerals, Floveyor’s technology plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between upstream supply and downstream demand. Our conveying solutions enable processors to handle battery-grade materials with the utmost care and efficiency, supporting the growth of this strategically important industry.

Networking and knowledge sharing

The Critical Minerals Conference 2024 offers an opportunity for industry professionals to connect, share insights, and explore the latest advancements in critical minerals processing. Floveyor powder handling specialists will be on hand throughout the event to discuss specific challenges and discuss how tailored solutions can optimise powder handling in critical mineral applications.


“We invite all conference attendees to visit us at Stand 55,”
Rhys said.


“Whether you’re involved in lithium, nickel, or other critical mineral processing, our team is eager to demonstrate how Floveyor’s technology can enhance your operations and contribute to the sustainable growth of the battery minerals industry.”
