Ion Exchange Modular Plants

Adelaide Control Engineering can provide complete containerised ion exchange modules for extraction of uranium from leach solutions, solutions containing base metals or other process streams.

They can be scaled to suit Field Leach trials, Pilot or Satellite plants up to full size processing plant.

These modules are fully tested and commissioned prior to transport to a production site anywhere in the world.
