CDE have recently returned from another successful appearance at the International Mining & Machinery Exhibition (IMME) in Kolkata, India. This was the 9th year of the IMME exhibition which is organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in association with the Ministry of Mines, Ministry of Coal and the Indian Government.
In addition to displaying their sand washing and iron ore washing equipment at IMME, CDE also co-sponsored The Global Mining Summit which ran alongside the exhibition. The summit was a two day event held on 6th and 7th November and saw the leading players in the Indian Mining Sector outlining their feelings on the future prospects for the industry in a variety of different areas. The IMME exhibition and the Global Mining Summit also had a distinctly international feel with many contributions from major players from other countries with an extensive mining industry and experience in mining technology including, most notably Australia.
CDE's Vice President of Business Development and Technology, Dr A Bandyopadhyay presented a detailed paper outlining the major benefits of washing iron ore reserves to increase efficiencies in steel production. CDE have extensive experience in the design and manufacture of iron ore washing systems in India and their plants are currently delivering significant cost savings for their customers, as can be seen in the comments of Mr Manoj Agarwal, Managing Director of Adhunik Metaliks, who installed a 120 ton per hour CDE ore washing plant at their site in Orissa earlier this year.
"Our CDE iron ore washing system has delivered impressive results by significantly lowering levels of both Alumina and Silica and achieving improvements in the FE content of our ore. We expect to achieve higher efficiency from our DRI and Sinter plants by using this washed ore."
Also presenting on behalf of CDE at the Global Mining Summit was Mr Andrea Pezzi who focused exclusively on the use of filter press technology in the treatment of waste water from both sand and iron ore washing operations. The paper delivered by Mr Pezzi outlined the significant cost savings that can be enjoyed by operators who introduce filter press technology. Speaking after the event, Mr Pezzi commented
"Our filter press technology has been proven extensively on CDE plants throughout Europe and The Middle East to deliver significant benefits for our customers and we believe that the introduction of these systems to the market in India will help the industry to improve efficiencies through cost reduction and also a huge reduction in the volume of water required to feed these washing systems."
Following their involvement in both the Global Mining Summit and the International Mining & Machinery Exhibition, CDE have reported a large number of new enquiries for their washing systems and expect to announce further confirmed orders with some of the major players in the industry over the coming weeks and months.
Commenting on the show, Mr Manish Bhartia, Managing Director of CDE Asia said "IMME and The Global Mining Summit provide CDE with an opportunity to promote our efficient washing systems to the major players in the Indian mining sector. We had a very busy show and are delighted with the response that we received from both existing and potential customers on our stand."
