Completing the coal flowsheet

For over a century, FLSmidth has been a global leader in high-efficiency process systems for coal and mineral beneficiation. We have continued to advance the productivity of mineral processing operations with mechanical systems and process innovations of ever greater capacity, efficiency and reliability.

FLSmidth’s legacy began 130 years ago in Denmark, and is today unmatched in the mineral processing industries. As your One Source for the world’s largest installed base of original equipment, enhanced products, technologies and services, we maintain a comprehensive range of design and engineering capabilities.

We have recently added to the range of products and services we offer with the acquisition of Ludowici and Decanter Machine, Inc. In an effort to be able to meet the every need of our customers, these new additions strengthen our minerals offerings by allowing FLSmidth to cover even more ground with our technologies and services.

As one of Australia’s oldest manufacturing companies, Ludowici specialises in the delivery of world-class minerals processing and material handling equipment. Established in 1858 and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange since 1911, Ludowici offers a heritage of excellence in manufacturing, sales and service spanning more than 150 years. Ludowici’s own on-site testing facilities enable us to challenge our thinking so that we continually imagine, develop, test and deliver some of the manufacturing sectors most original, precision engineered products. Because approximately 60% of Ludowici’s revenue is related to service activities, spare parts and consumables, this acquisition supports FLSmidth’s goal to expand our Customer Services offerings.

Decanter Machine, Inc. is recognised as the global leader in the manufacture of screen bowl, solid bowl and hyperbaric centrifuges for minerals applications. This company has over 550 centrifuges installed across eleven countries. With the acquisition of Decanter, FLSmidth complements the coarse particle centrifuge technology of FLSmidth Ludowici.

With these two acquisitions, FLSmidth has the complete range of centrifuge technology used for coal preparation, as well as in other FLSmidth priority industries. Decanter's extensive experience and strong know-how in the area of repair services, rotor unit rebuilding, field service and preventative maintenance will also enable FLSmidth to further strengthen this service offering within its minerals customer base.

FLSmidth continues to prove itself as your One Source with a broad range of equipment and processes. We can provide single pieces of equipment or a complete process plant designed, constructed and fully equipped.

To successfully compete in today’s challenging world economy, companies often require innovative solutions to make plant operating systems function at peak efficiency. Utilizing the latest in equipment technology, resources, and materials, we deliver the optimum design, equipment, and process support needed.

When you select FLSmidth as your partner, you bring this solid foundation and support to your business.
