Press release date: April 24, 2008

Erie, Pa. - Eriez® today announced that Eriez-CPT Brazil, the company's sales and manufacturing division for flotation products serving the Brazilian market, has won an order for 14 CoalPro Column Flotation Cells from Cia. Vale do Rio Doce (CVRD). According to Eriez, the order, which exceeded $6 million (USD), is the largest single order Eriez-CPT Brazil has received to date.

The contract is for eight 19.7 feet diameter x 45.9 feet high columns with cavitation spargers and six 14.1 feet diameter x 45.9 feet high columns with SlamJet® spargers. SlamJet is a patented, automatic, self-regulating gas injection system. It is based on Eriez-CPT Brazil's highly successful manual SparJet gas sparging system and addresses two of the most common problems associated with operating a plant: fluctuating airline pressures and power failures.

Tim Shuttleworth, Eriez President and CEO, explained that CVRD purchased this equipment for the first phase of its Salobo Copper project in Brazil. The Salobo project is located in the Amazon region in Brazil and will produce more than 220 million pounds of copper and 8,000 pounds of gold annually. Shuttleworth said that, throughout the years, several Eriez-CPT Brazil employees have been involved with the Salobo project, which has been in existence for nearly 30 years.

According to Eriez, CVRD is currently commissioning a hydrometallurgical demonstration plant supplied by Cominco Engineering Services Limited (CESL). If successful, CVRD intends to expand the Salobo Project to increase copper production to 440 million pounds per year.
