Ore Slurry Preparation

Ore preparation plants utilize large mechanical equipment including crushers, conveyors, mixers, and pumps to convert bitumen ore to slurry for transport to the primary extraction plant. This process is extremely tough on equipment as the bitumen ore is very erosive and mechanical degradation is inevitable. Additionally, optimizing hot process water usage with ore feed rates for slurry production is critical to ensuring maximum bitumen recovery while minimizing energy usage.
