Kola MMC upgrades the equipment in the production of copper and Nickel
MMC «Kola» upgrades fleet of flotation machines in the refining
shop. The programme for replacement of old units FMR-10 yield
the place more modern technology — flotation «WEMCO». Due to this
modernization, management expects to significantly reduce
the production process that will bring «Kola» tangible benefits regarding the quality
separation of Converter matte at the same time reducing production costs
of the finished product. In addition, the new machine (due to the higher degree of extraction
useful elements) will allow the company to increase annual production volumes
19 tonnes of copper and 27 tons of Nickel.
All the management of «Kola» is planning to set up

Currently, workers engaged in the replacement of equipment, concrete
space for installation of new equipment and gather at the designated for this purpose
area metal construction. The amount that the owners of the company invest
in the project, will exceed 130 million rubles.
Flotation machines «WEMCO» MMC «Kola»
faces not for the first time: in the area of separation Feinstein, the pilot samples of this
technicians working for almost 10 years. During this time, complaints of imported aggregates
the employees of the company appeared. On the contrary: there was a higher (than
domestic counterparts), the level of ergonomics control technology (with automatic
process control), a more economical consumption of energy and simplicity
JSC «Kola MMC» is a powerful production
complex for the extraction and processing of sulphide ores of Nickel and copper. The main assets
the company combines «Pechenga» (North-West of the Murmansk region) and «Severonikel»
(the Central part of the Kola Peninsula). At the company’s facilities
is made of electrolytic copper and Nickel, PNK (Nickel powder carbonyl),
the carbonyl fraction of metallic cobalt and cobalt concentrate and concentrates
precious metals and technical sulfuric acid.
