Process Improvement:

OURAY E&M’s staff of innovative and highly technical personnel can provide process improvements to almost any facility or proposed facility. Chemical – Oil & Gas – Mining – Waste.

Wet Plant Processing Equipment:

OURAY E&M provides their customers the most efficient and cost effective wet washing plant solution available today. OURAY E&M’s plant is specifically designed for lower maintenance cost, a higher segregation accuracy, utilization of less water and production of a higher quality product, resulting in a faster return on investment for the owner/operator.

  • Eductor Mixing:

    OURAY E&M utilizes an eductor based mixing and pumping system. By harnessing the power of this technology, we can propel the slurry through the gradation process and minimize contact between the pump and the abrasive minerals in the system which enhances the longevity of the pumps. More importantly, the use of eductor units allows OURAY E&M to design the exact water turbulence to create maximum mineral saturation resulting in an ideal feed stock for the remainder of the system.
  • Particulate Separation:

    OURAY E&M utilizes a proprietary design which can be targeted for exact mineral segregation. Our horizontal drum separators rely on centrifugal & tangential forces to separate the particulates as desired by the customer and does not need the use of cyclone type units. By utilizing centrifugal force without the use of vacuum and gravity we eliminate variables and dramatically increase the accuracy of the particulate cut.

  • Modular Construction:

    OURAY E&M can, if desired, construct these units in a modular way utilizing “intermodal frames” so that the process modules can be easily shipped to the site. This allows the construction of the units in a factory environment to the specification required for the customers mineral production, which allows for easier movement on site, reduction of transport costs, reduced on-site installation time and a reduction in capital costs.
  • Mineral Input, Loading & Excavation:

    OURAY E&M’s units can be utilized with either dry or wet excavation techniques. OURAY can provide wet loading system, hopper-less mineral split systems, overland hydro-transport, wet list system and jet dredgers.

Wet Plant Overview

  • Hybrid Mineral Process System is a modular and transportable high yield mineral process unit targeted at producing specific gradations and high value products in the oil and gas proppants industry (frac sand). This system employs technology that is non-typical within the silica sand processing industry as well as proprietary equipment which is historically utilized for mineral handling. Although these units may be relatively non-standard in this application the technology behind the application is well known in other mineral handling/cleaning fields of industry.

Water Treatment:

OURAY E&M provides its customers with a full array of top quality water treatment options. Whether it is the treatment of process water, the make-up water or recycle water, we have a solution to maximize use and efficiencies.

Some of our individual water treatment options are:

  • #

    Precipitation systems

  • Hydrocarbon removal

  • Particulate removal

  • Ion exchange

  • Desalination units

  • Chloride management and reduction

  • Iron / manganese removal

  • Lignite separation

*OURAY E&M will require facility design information, mineral deposit reviews, operational studies and/or site based engineering information to deliver robust solutions for new or existing facility construction or production improvements.

Mineral Enhancement:

OURAY E&M’s Mineral Reactor Unit (MRU) utilizes a mechanical process to raise the performance properties of the subject mineral crush strength. The MRU process capabilities include innovative wet based attrition reactors for the improvement of the performance characteristics of the minerals processed. The reactor system can improve flakiness, sphericity, removal of detritus and improvement of crush strength therefore subsequently raise the market value of the product and end users demand.

Mineral Deposit Analysis:

Whether you are an investor looking for the best deposit available in a certain area, a land owner trying to explore the potential of a prospective mineral deposit or an operator of an existing facility looking to explore a reduction in operational costs or an increase in product value. Our expert staff can enhance the identification of new deposits, conduct in-situ investigation of inground reserves, complete minerology, assess the market valuation of 3rd party acquired samples, examine permitting and ownership requirements or carry out full assessment of the environmental issue pertaining to the proposed mineral processing facility. The OURAY E&M project team has the skills and experience to establish the optimum route to the best return on investment.

OURAY Container Processing

Let OURAY design and manufacture a bespoke container processing unit to best fit your individual needs. No matter the quantity, size or materials-of-build; OURAY can design, manufacture and construct the perfect system for you, while fitting it into your existing facility. We build our systems to be as efficient as possible thereby requiring minimum interaction with personnel, use of electricity and water. Our units can process virtually any type of container; from small cans and jugs up to large IBC’s and Intermodal Tanks constructed from either poly material, fiber or metal.

Cleaning

Say good-bye to costly and time-consuming outsourcing. Cleaning can be done effectively and efficiently with the OURAY’s On-site Cleaning System which offers 100% guaranteed cleaning that ensures the entire containers interior is thoroughly cleaned, while utilizing the least amount of time, energy, chemicals, and water. Our system combines rotary jet head cleaning technology with integrated vacuum extraction, which allows drums without drains to be easily cleaned and emptied from the top, through a 2" or larger bung. The OURAY system is designed for operation at flow rates as low as 3 gallons per minute. Unlike other rotary jet head systems, the unit applies 100% of the water flow to cleaning - not in powering the unit itself. With a single insertion of the easy-to-handle unit, 100% cleaning effectiveness is assured, along with complete liquid extraction.

Optional Heel Heat

If you have a thick/viscose product with thick heel, OURAY can provide an option to pre-heat the material with through internal steam or electric external heat. Depending on the number of drums these systems can be large or specific to each product in each container.

Optional Detergent or Kerosene Treatment

For those harder to clean product heels, OURAY can provide a system to inject heated detergent or kerosene to facilitate the breakdown of the materials still stuck to the walls of the container.

Water Treatment

OURAY utilizes state-of-the-art water treatment technology to recycle as much of the water as possible. By doing this OURAY can save you thousands in the costs of fresh water as well as the disposal of the used wash water. Constant recycling can be achieved to minimize water recharge and maximize profitability.

Shredding

OURAY offers shredding options for your cleaned container and we can also shred the cumbersome wood and poly pallets the build up at your facility. For poly/plastic items a poly pelletizer may be the best option to have sellable byproduct from your process just like the scrap metal.
