WesTech Engineering, Inc.
based in Salt Lake City, UTAH (USA)
WesTech designs and manufactures thickeners for the coal prep industry for product concentration, tailings disposal and CCD circuit washing, including HiFlo Thickeners and Deep Bed Paste Thickeners. Paste thickening is a proven technology increasing the profitability of mining operations. In the coal preparation plant there are two applications for paste thickening: concentrating fine coal and producing paste from coal tailings for increased water recovery and elimination of tailings ponding. Paste thickeners recover the maximum water possible from tailings streams. Tailings disposal sites have a longer life and the land can be reclaimed faster and easier. New tailings disposal sites can be smaller and significantly less costly.
