A compact and versatile Mercury Abatement System

As a global leader, it is our responsibility to come up with solutions to problems such as health risks and environmental impact.

At FLSmidth, we recognise that mercury in metals recovery processes is highly dangerous and has been linked to neurological diseases and conditions, as well as other health concerns. Global pollution of mercury into the atmosphere is also increasing, causing damage to the environment and potentially harming all lifeforms.


With sustainability in mind, we have manufactured Mercury Abatement Systems, a range of equipment that is designed to remove mercury from the metals recovery process. Made of stainless and carbon steel, our systems are robust, compact, and versatile, as they are able to treat a wide variety of materials. They are adaptable, as they have been designed to work with a range of different metals recovery circuits and equipment, such as the Merrill Crowe circuit, the Carbon Regeneration Kiln, the Gold Electrowinning Cell, the Melt Furnace and Refinery Air treatment. 


We have worked closely with environmental authorities and site managers in the development of our systems. Whatever your requirements are, we are confident we have a mercury solution for you. 


Mercury Retort

We offer the Summit Valley™ Mercury Retort, a machine designed to remove mercury from gold sludge using vaporisation. It is capable of safely meeting temperatures between 200° C and 600° C, but this can be adjusted to suit conditions on site. It comes in two distinct designs; the smaller barrel-style oven, and the larger cabinet style ovens, well suited for the large production capacity Merrill Crowe circuits.


Process Equipment Mercury Abatement

Our Mercury Abatement Systems have been manufactured to capture mercury vapor in the process exhaust streams of gold and silver recovery circuits. They are small systems designed to meet and surpass toxic mercury emission limits for your mine-site. Our systems are complete and are correctly sized to fit in with much larger equipment.

If your orebody contains mercury, you can have the assurance of protecting your workers and the environment by installing our mercury capture equipment. The carbon strip and electrowinning circuit, carbon regeneration kiln and refinery smelting furnaces will all need mercury control.

Our systems have been adapted to how these specific streams function and are versatile and more suited to a particular need.
