Mining processes produce large quantities of fines as waste that need to be handled for the continuity of the operation. The most common treatment route is to thicken the material prior to disposal, shrinking the volume required for tailings storage and allowing water recovery and reuse in the process. This thickening process is aided with the addition of a flocculant to increase the settling rate of the fine solids and reduce the size of the thickeners needed.
The choice of the flocculant is governed by the mineralogy of the fine, chemistry of the water and the equipment. We offer a wide range of flocculants to suit any specific application.we recommend our models of Chinafloc A2015 and Chinafloc A2520 and Chinafloc A2718 and Chinafloc N0510.
The proper application of the flocculant can significantly impact the total operational efficiency.While excess flocculant in overflows can recirculate back into upstream processes impacting process efficiency, poor thickener performance can bottleneck production.
Our team of experts have many years of experience in optimizing thickeners. Let us help you maximize your operations.
