Effectively liberate precious minerals or wash clays/fines with a Rotary Scrubber

Get the right scrubber to suit your needs. With supplied scrubber diameters up to 7.33m, we have a well established range of scrubbers to suit all applications.

We have the ability to custom design our solutions to suit your application - whether it’s washing of clays, deagglomeration of fines, or autogenous grinding for liberation of precious minerals.


You need dependability, and with our products that comes standard. Our Rotary Scrubbers feature field-proven robust designs to operate in the most remote regions of the world. Support bearings are of a heavy duty shell-supported design. Additionally, traditional mining duty gear-driven drive trains provide exceptional durability and effective transmission over a wider speed range than tire driven designs enabling you to fine tune scrubbing intensity for the application.
