Tailings slurrification units

Dry mining combined with low OPEX slurry transport

The IHC Tailings Slurrification Unit (TSU) is a semi-mobile unit responsible for tailings oversize removal, temporary storage, slurry generation (slurrification) and slurry discharge to the destination site.
  • Operational safety – remotely controlled systems so no personnel in the dams
  • Lower cost per tonne, compared to truck and shovel
  • Minimal downtime and lower risk, due to automatic pump control system
  • Low carbon footprint – completely electrified slurrification unit

Tailings with a dry surface can be re-handled using conventional mining equipment, such as trucks and excavators. However, climate change and the need for environmentally responsible, cost-effective, high-production and efficient methods to transport material place great demands on the mining industry. 

In order to overcome these challenges, IHC has developed several slurrification options to transport tailings over short and long distances. 

 
 

Solutions for all production demand

Tailings Slurrification Unit (TSU): TSUs are container-sized slurry transport systems that can be fed by a conventional excavator, and transport tailings over long distances with ease.

Dry Mining Slurrification Unit (DMSU): IHC’s DMSU provides a solution for high-capacity tailings re-handling operations that can compete with truck-and-shovel operations.

TT-Pump and cutterhead: The IHC TT-Pump with cutterhead is the smallest unit in the slurrification product family.
