New Product Development and Existing Product Improvements

The development of new products and the improvements of existing ones represent Allis Mineral Systems' thrust to meet changing customer needs. It operates its own Process Research and Test Center (PRTC). The PRTC is a fully equipped facility with the capabilities to perform complex material and process testing and evaluations, as well as simulating complete flowsheets.

The PRTC is designed to perform comminution, agglomeration and thermal processing studies. Its test facilities range from laboratory and batch tests to pilot plant circuits. Typical processes investigated in continuous pilot plant circuits include drying, calcining, ore pelletizing, clinker production, roasting, direct reduction, thermal conversion, soil decontamination and waste treatment. In the last 40 years, the PRTC has conducted over 50 continuous pilot tests.
