King’s Beads’ Engineering Center is accredited for Performing IsaMill™ Test work

July 13, 2021

King’s Beads has secured another milestone. King’s Engineering Center is now one of the nine third-party laboratories accredited to perform IsaMill™ Signature Plot Testing around the globe.

Glencore Technology is the supplier of IsaMill™, and this award recommends King’s Beads to perform specific grinding energy (SGE) analysis for specific IsaMill™ grinding duty. The Glencore-designed M4 Signature Plot Testing Procedure provides SGE data that can be accurately scaled up, which is essential in designing IsaMill™ grinding circuits.

The LME-4 mill has the same internal dimensions and workings as the IsaMill™ M4, and it is designed for laboratory testing purposes for pilot/industrial IsaMill™ applications. King’s LME-4 mill was solely commissioned for lab testing, with a scale-up capacity to Glencore’s IsaMill™ production units in the mining industry.

The lab mill is also robust enough to carry out ceramic media wear rate tests and suitable for optimization of IsaMill™ milling conditions. While King’s Beads has been able to offer exceptional technical service to IsaMill™ customers, the lab accreditation provides greater merit to the King’s Beads’ commitment to the mining industry.

Along with being an officially IsaMill™ recommended ceramic media supplier, with this lab accreditation, King’s Beads takes another step in delivering well-priced premium-quality grinding solutions for King’s Beads’ customers.
