Velan presented at Alta 2018 in Perth

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.
