The flipscreen is making great inroads in the coal industry. After many years of being a peripheral machine for processing contaminated stockpiles, now the flipscreen is at the forefront of the mining process. The WL3000 project will culminate with a machine which processes 30 tonnes at a time at "the coal face". Flip Screen Australia is in discussions in many mines in Australia and around the world such as coal, iron ore, gold and bauxite, however this technology can be use in any mining operation requiring a primary separation and crushing process.
Where the coal contains shale, intrusion or other contaminants, the Flipscreen can process the coal to a higher grade and therefore achieving a premium in approximately eight seconds per bucket. The WL3000 will process 30 tonnes of coal per 76 second cycle, resulting in an hourly rate of 1,410 tonnes per hour. In the case of iron ore mining where crushing is required, the WL3000 computer can be set to crush mode to break up oversized material during the process.
In 2017, Flip Screen Australia has started the manufacturing process of these mega screening machines and is taking orders. The company has budgeted $40.445 million for a state of the art manufacturing facility capable of producing up to 36 units per year in Wagga Wagga, NSW.
