Magnafloc 338 is a moderately high molecular weight anionic polyacrylamide flocculant supplied as a free flowing granular powder.
Magnafloc 338 has found application in a wide variety of mineral processing operations including the following:
1. Clarification of zinc pulps
2. Thickening of metal hydroxides
3. Filtration of metal hydroxides
4. Flocculation of iron ore tailings
5. Flocculation of coal tailings
Dosage depends upon the application but normally lies in the range 2 – 200 g/tonne of dry substrate.
