Rotex is honored to be featured as the cover story of the October issue of Powder & Bulk Solids! The article starts on page 20 of the magazine. In May 2017, K+S Potash Canada (KSPC) opened a new potash mine. This is the largest project in the illustrious history of KSPC, and Rotex is thrilled to now be a part of that history. Rotex was chosen as the screening solution for the Bethune plant. This new partnership required trust and faith between KSPC and Rotex. The Bethune project demanded innovation to increase capacity while reducing the amount of equipment required. Rotex stepped up to the plate and delivered two brand-new Minerals Separator™ models (MM5430-2 and MM5430-1-S) that achieve an unprecedented 650 metric/hour feed rate. This innovation helped KSPC reduce capital spending on the new plant as well as overall operational costs; there is now less equipment, which requires less energy consumption and less maintenance.
