Clariant Mining will upgrade to significantly larger laboratory facilities, filled with state-of-the-art equipment, this fall. when Clariant Oil & Mining Services moves into its new global headquarters at The Woodlands, Texas.

"The new laboratories, which are four times larger than our current facilities in North America, were designed to host the most advanced mining technology available today, "said Paul Gould, Global Head of Marketing and Application Development for Clariant Mining. "For example, the structure of the building accommodates a new two-story flotation column that will be installed as part of the upgrade."

In conjunction with Clariant's Innovation Center located in Frankfurt, Germany, the North American lab will be used to develop new flotation products to meet the demands of regional customers. Other capabilities include mineral analysis and laboratory-scale beneficiation testing from crushing to concentrate.

The planned laboratory facilities in The Woodlands are part of a series of specialized mining laboratories that Clariant has opened over the last several years in the world's key mining regions, including; Johannesburg, South Africa, Guangzhou, China, and Saint Petersburg, Russia. These are in addition to seasoned labs in Santiago, Chile and Sao Paulo, Brazil, where Clariant Mining has been a leader in copper/molybdenum and reverse iron ore flotation.

"More than ever before, our North American customers will benefit from the specialized and customized attention made possible through the robust capabilities of our new laboratories, in addition to drawing on the broad experience of Clariant Mining's global metallurgical organization" said Chris Adair, Clariant's North American Sales Manager for Mining.
