REDWAVE mineral sorting

Solutions especially for the requirements in mining

REDWAVE ROX was developed for sorting many different minerals, ores and precious stones, such as limestone, calcite/dolomite, quartz, talc, magnesite or lithium in the industrial mineral sector, or copper, zinc, lead, nickel or gold and silver in the ore sector (metals). With its stable detection quality and intelligent sorting technology, REDWAVE ROX ensures high selectivity with high throughput rates at the same time.

Our project with REDWAVE was very successful. All the equipment was delivered on time, despite the tight schedule. The installation and commissioning of the devices went smoothly, even though the equipment was installed in a challenging location. After six months of experience, we can say that we made the right choice with REDWAVE!
