Complex problems sometimes require more than simple solutions. We have the knowledge and experience to find the right solutions.

On every project, we seek input from clients' maintenance and operating personnel to uncover the basic causes of their issues and better understand their needs. This enables us to deliver better results and gives a sense of ownership to the people who will work with the system on a daily basis.

Ionic Engineering provides electrical, instrumentation, controls, mechanical and civil/structural engineering consulting and project management services for industry.

  • Vibratory Feeders
  • Control Systems
  • Smelting and Refining
  • Mining
  • Aggregates
  • Project Profile

    Crushing Plant Upgrade

    We have recently completed designing, programming and commissioning two successful crushing plant upgrades, including jaw crushers, cone crushers, screens and conveyors.

    Project Profile

    Lime System Upgrade

    We designed the lime addition system for an industrial water system including the piping, pumping, instrumentation and controls for several lime addition points.

    Project Profile

    Smelter PLC Upgrade

    We designed and commissioned the upgrade of 8 Allen-Bradley PLC-3s to Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLCs. Through precise planning, we were able to perform the upgrade while minimizing plant downtime.

    Project Profile

    Conveyor System Automation

    We recently completed a scoping study and technical feasability report for automating multiple conveyors and a tripper. The solution incorporates new instrumentation and remote control, including wireless communication.

    Backfill Plants | Ionic Engineering

    Our basic plant design has a capacity of 50 to 200 tons of backfill per day, and is customized for efficient storage and handling of tailings, sand, cement, water and additives. Because backfill plants are often needed in remote locations, finding sufficient skilled construction labour can be challenging and expensive. Ionic Engineering's modular backfill plant is your solution for creating hydraulic, paste and cemented backfill.


    Copper/Nickel Refinery Automation | Ionic Engineering

    Suitable for both small and large operations, the Ionic Anode Preparation System is available with capacities of 150-500 anodes per hour. Ionic is a pioneer in the application of well developed and highly reliable robotic technologies in electrolytic refinery environments. Ionic has a long track record developing custom systems for refineries in applications where standard equipment does not exist.


    Control Panels | Ionic Engineering

    We can create PLC systems to employ EN 945 Category 4 safety standards-the highest safety standards used in any industrial environment. We can design and create control systems for new applications or for integration into your existing work environment. This includes developing software to interface with non-standard hardware. Motor controls, low voltage through 460V, high-power motors. Ionic Engineering creates custom control panels.


    Portable Electrical Rooms | Ionic Engineering

    Each control room is fabricated at an Ionic Engineering facility and transported to the installation site where it is connected to its intended system. Our portable electrical rooms are designed to minimize the construction costs associated with installing an electrical system on-site. The entire electrical system is contained in the modular electrical room and shipped to your site ready to operate.


    Products | Ionic Engineering

    Our custom, modular backfill plants are designed to work in a wide range of climates and can be used for hydraulic, paste and cemented backfill. Our custom, modular, pre-fabricated electrical rooms minimize on-site electrical-construction and installation costs. We design and build control systems for new applications or for integration into your existing work environment.
