Gold Recovery System
The Macrotec Gold Recovery from Activated Carbon System has revolutionised the way Gold is recovered from fine activated carbon. The system has had global success, with units operating in South Africa, Tanzania, Ghana, Mali, and the USA, with projects underway in Asia.
The system utilises a thermal process that burns off the carbon and captures the gold residue in the resultant fly ash, using highly efficient ceramic filters. The entire process is fully automated to increase productivity of the plant.
High Recovery Rate:
With a recovery rate of 93-95%, our system far exceeds other industrial processes, helping mines increase their gold yield.
Our system operates on a continuous bases, recovering 60/90 kg per hour. This translates into processing 25 to 30 ton carbon per month, allowing for start-up times and maintenance.
Low Operating Cost:
Since the Macrotec system is a thermal process, utilising the heat produced by the fine carbon, it results in very low operating costs, allowing for recovery of Gold in ultra-low concentrations.
Reliability & Maintenance:
Low maintenance and high reliability are the most critical features to all Macrotec’s products. A simplified design with few moving parts translates into less maintenance and longer running times.
With no chemicals used in the process, combustion at a high temperatures, and ceramic filters to remove particulate matter, the process achieves results without compromising the environment.
