Maelgwyn General Manager Steve Flatman recently attended the Minerals Engineering International Precious Metals 15 Conference in Cornwall, UK and delivered a paper entitled “Twenty years of development to commercial demonstration of the Aachen reactor”. The paper was very well received and promoted a great deal of discussion outside of the main presentations. Essentially the paper covered the history of development of the Aachen Reactor from the very first conceptual ideas and early trials to the current design where over 40 are installed for Pre-Oxygenation applications at gold operations mainly in Africa.
