Velan presented at Alta 2018 in Perth

2018/07/17
The Perth based conference continues to grow and is considered the premier conference for Hydrometallurgy used to recover Nickel, Gold, Copper, Cobalt and many other minerals/metals. Even in the face of adverse commodity prices, there has been increased demand for Cobalt due to the growing car battery market. This year at ALTA a paper was presented by Velan and co-authored by Callidus.

Callidus Group is an authorized agent for Velan for the mining industry in Australia. They are also a Velan authorized service shop servicing mining customers in Australia and New Zealand. They are responsible for managing the maintenance and repairs to client-owned severe service ball valves. These are critical in maintaining the arduous process conditions of HPAL.

The current “gold standard” to protect balls and seats is a thermally sprayed TiO2 ceramic coating. Our presentation unveiled unique data on two novel solutions recently developed to protect Velan metal-seated ball valves in HPAL processes. The first is VEL-8, a proprietary APS-deposited blend compatible with a wide range of substrates, and the second is a field-tested metallurgically bonded hardfacing solution.
