Team Mixing Technologies supplied a slurry plant for the HBM&S 777 mine expansion project. The supplied TMT Tornado system produces cementitious slurry required by a paste backfill plant that is used for ground stabilization in the underground mine.

The slurry plant features a 1350 liter colloidal mixer, agitation tank, progressive cavity pump, magnetic flow meter, and is supplied fully automated with an integrated MCC & PLC cabinet.

The colloidal mixer produces slurry on demand. As the agitation tank drops to a predetermined low-level set point, additional colloidal mixer batches are initiated as required. Progressive cavity pump output and slurry flow readings are controlled by the main paste backfill system where the slurry is introduced into the primary backfill mixer.

Typical of all TMT Tornadoes, this system is self-cleaning, after every batch. The plant also features the upgraded mark III colloidal mills including an improved sealing system and automatic grease purging.
