Copper Producer Upgrades Valve Control Equipment
ATI, a Texas, USA-based integrated manufacturer of valve automation solutions, has begun the task of replacing 42 existing linear valve actuators with its newest model at an open-pit copper mining operation in Arizona. The new double-acting actuators are constructed with a 14-in. bore and 23-in. stroke in modulating service of shaft-mounted DART valves for flow control in the operation’s open top slurry separation process.
