AGR’s Solid to Solution (STS) delivers solid sodium cyanide in bulk form (up to 20 metric tonnes) to mine operations by isotainer, which enables secure road, rail and international transportation.
As part of the delivery process, on arriving at a mine site the product is dissolved by pumping water into the isotainer to create a ready-to-use solution, which is then transferred to customer receival and storage facilities.
For technical advice on STS, please contact your AGR representative.
Delivering solid sodium cyanide in bulk form provides an economical transport solution and can enhance a customer’s supply chain model, especially if a mine site is a significant distance from a sodium cyanide manufacturing facility.
For mines that have a heavy demand for sodium cyanide and suitable logistics infrastructure, delivery cycles (delivery and return) of STS isotainers are set-up to provide a safe and suitable volumes of ready-to-use solution.
AGR assists customers in the design and construction of storage tanks and programming dissolution and delivery processes to ensure safe storage and dissolution of the product.
As for the dissolved sodium cyanide, there is no need for mine site personnel to handle the product.
AGR’s STS isotainers are custom-designed and engineered to ensure the highest level of safety and security during delivery and operation. The design meets the requirements of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code for International Maritime Organisation Type 1 vessels and the Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road and Rail.
For the majority of Australian customers, STS is transported in isotainers from our production facilities by rail, and then road freighted to customer mine sites. Where rail transport is not available, product is transported by road direct to customer mine sites.
To ensure the highest level of safety and security, the transport of all product is continuously tracked and monitored throughout delivery to site.
