Barite Grinding Plant
Based on the success of the barite grinding facility designed and built by Mouat in Larose, Louisiana, Halliburton contracted Mouat for the turnkey design and construction of their most recent mineral processing plant located in Dunphy, Nevada. This plant was started up in the spring of 2014.
Mouat provided all engineering, procurement, construction and project management associated with the project including site prep, the design and installation of the process equipment, and the design and construction of the mill building and warehouse.
This barite grinding plant, the largest in North America, covers 66,000 square feet including the mill building, maintenance area, bag packing room and warehouse. It has two Williams mills capable of grinding barite in excess of 90 tons per hour. The facility provides rail and truck load-out facilities and two robotic bagging and palletizing lines for shipment of pallets by truck.
