The fully automatic slurry management system dewaters solids laden slurry or fines laden water from several sources simultaneously. (It is a bit like straining cooked rice!)
An auger – pneumatically, hydraulically, or electrically driven – separates coal fines and other materials from water.
Brain’s FSU can dewater almost any hard ore, rock, stone, sand, or other contaminants and hazardous materials with a particle size of less than 80mm that are within water soluble clays or silts.
The end product has a typical moisture content of 15% – 20% and can be discharged directly on to a conveyor belt, hopper, or secondary dewatering screen.
Brain Industries has various, standard, FSU models but can customise an FSU to your needs.

In the mining sector, FSUs help recover coal fines to turn into a saleable product and to deal with the ongoing costs of sludge and slurry management. But an FSU can be used in any industry looking to better manage sludge and slurries.
In the mining sector an FSU saves on costs and maximises revenue.
Removing solid particles reduces the wear rate of dewatering pumps and reduces the volume of material ending up in tailings dams.
The recovered coal fines or other solid material can be returned to your production process to sell.
An FSU Brain built for a NSW mine paid for itself within two weeks!
