Heavy-Duty Bulk Bag-Filling Station Handles Abrasive Zircon and Rutile

Tronox Western Australia operates the world's largest fully integrated titanium ore and titanium dioxide (TiO2) project, covering the spectrum from mining of mineral sands through extraction and upgrading to obtain TiO2 pigment.

The project is also a major producer of the mineral zircon (zirconium silicate), which is also obtained from the mineral sands.

The chief products at Tronox’s Western Australian operations are rutile (TiO2) and zircon (ZrSiO4), which ultimately are loaded into bulk bags at Tronox’s Henderson shipping facility and transported in shipping containers to nearby Fremantle, Western Australia’s largest and busiest cargo port — for export and domestic use.

The loading of bulk bags over the years had become a bottleneck, but has been remedied by a special bulk bag filling station from Flexicon Corporation Australia.
