Our Diamond XRT Plants

Consulmet has been working with XRT machines for diamond recovery for over a decade.  In an industry-first, we deployed the first production-scale XRT plant to recover large diamonds in 2012.

We can integrate XRT machines into a project flowsheet (to optimise large stone recovery and reduce diamond breakage/damage) or provide a stand-alone, modular recovery plant.
