A place for practical, application specific, raw material investigation. A program that helps to establish valuable information specific to your project goals, material processing needs and the potential use of HAZEMAG equipment and services. It’s all about you: The HAZEMAG Customer!
It goes without saying that you are invited to accompany the tests in our Test Plant, and this would also be a great opportunity to discuss your project in detail.
A wealth of experience is to be found behind the operation of every HAZEMAG product, backed by a level of partnership and product support that remains second to none. Our application knowledge, equipment flexibility and market competitiveness put us in a unique position to react to your precise project needs. We call it “Partnership Unlimited – The HAZEMAG Way”.
The existing plant facilities allow for equipment to be combined and operated within the following groups:
- Laboratory Testing
- Coarse Crushing / Screening
- Fine Crushing / Grinding
- Grinding & Drying
To ensure that field conditions are replicated as close as possible, machines at the Test Plant are all from the current HAZEMAG range of equipment.
The layout of the Coarse Crushing section has been designed to use one of the two Impactors, or the Roll Crusher. If a screening unit is used, oversize material can be returned to the feed material flow (closed loop operation).
The Fine Crushing and Drying section, with a Hammermill and Rapid Dryer, forms another core part of the test plant.
The Hammermill has been integrated into the system in such a way that a range of crushing/grinding & drying operations are possible.
In the section set aside solely for Drying Technology and the Processing of Wet Feed Materials, is a Rapid Dryer with HAZEMAG rotary gate valves for feeding and discharge; fine material is separated via cyclone and filter.
The whole plant is computer-controlled, and there is a visual display of the current operational status of all units. A total of six basic menus are available, which can be modified as needed.
During the test process, the status of the individual equipment, such as the power input of the electric drives, the rotor tip speed of the crushers, as well as the various system temperatures, are all displayed. Pre-programming of various parameters is also possible.
All the results from tests carried out in the HAZEMAG Test Plant, as well as any other special tests and investigations, are evaluated in the Test Plant’s own laboratory.
Tests can be carried out to determine the following:
- Plant Capacity
- Power Requirements
- Granulation Curves
- Wear Rates
- Thermal Loads
- Moisture Contents
The data collected forms the basis for fulfilling users’ requirements.
For specific detailed tests, the following are also available:
- Laboratory Crusher
- Laboratory Roll Mill
- Adhesion Measuring Device
- Casagrande Liquid Limit Apparatus
- Hazemag Abrasion Test Equipment (Pennsylvania Test Method)
- Point Load Tester
Feed materials (representative samples) for comminution or drying tests must be provided by the customer free of charge. Please refer to the table ‘Test procedures and Sample Description’ (see brochure) with regard to required quantities and sizes. For the test numbers 15-19, we require delivery in 1,000kg bulk bags. Smaller quantities may be delivered in barrels, or similar. Please feel free to contact HAZEMAG to discuss in detail the amount of test material that is needed for your specific project.
The test sample should be identified with the following information:
- Company Name
- Contact Person
- Telephone Number
- Description of Material (For example, Limestone)
- Identification (Such as Project, Site, etc.)
Required raw material and process data:
- Chemical and/or mineralogical analysis
- Hardness and compressive strength of the feed material
- Moisture content of the supplied material and (in the event of deviations) the humidity of the typical feed material
- Source of the material
- Your requirements for the product
- Desired intended use and purpose
- Safety data sheet of the material (if applicable)
