Non Ferrous Mineral Beneficiation

MBE has been a pioneer in the construction of Mineral Processing Plants in the country. The first indigenously designed and built mineral processing plant in the country, the Fluorspar Beneficiation Plant for Gujarat Mineral Development Corporation was built by MBE and since then MBE has built most of the major mineral beneficiation plants in the country catering to various minerals like Zinc, Lead, Copper, Uranium, Iron, Fluorspar, etc.

MBE has in its manufacturing scope a wide range of equipment that caters to the Mineral Beneficiation sector, which provides an in-depth knowledge of each unit process that is involved in a mineral plant and enables MBE to design a well-balanced plant at optimum investment.

MBE has an association with some of the world leaders in technology for various equipment and has under its manufacturing range critical mineral processing equipment like Slurry Pumps, Thickeners, Grinding Mills, Crushers, Screens, etc. to cater to the needs of the complex plants. As a result, MBE can set up complex Mineral Beneficiation Plants on turnkey basis from concept to commissioning stage.

MBE has tie-ups with several leading indigenous as well as international laboratories and test centers and can today build mineral plants from concept to commissioning including the design of flow sheet.
