Mineral processing is an energy- and water-intensive process. Together with urbanization and the rising demand for mineral-based products, mineral activities are increasingly taking place in water- stressed areas across the globe. Diminishing ore quality leads to higher consumption of water for extraction and processing in these already sensitive environments.
Chinafloc offer solutions for producers of alumina, copper, nickel, gold, iron ore, coal, phosphate, white pigments, ceramics and aggregates. Let us customize a program to increase your energy efficiency, improve your mineral or metal recovery and reduce your environmental impact.
The coal industry continues to expand as infrastructure grows in all regions of the world. With this growth comes many operational challenges including fines-handling and effluent management.
We can help improve plant efficiencies and manage effluent programs by tailoring solutions to meet the needs of individual plants. Our experience and quality manufactured products bring value to your coal processing operations.
Coal preparation plants usually undergo a series of operations, including washing, screening, sedimentation, floatation and dewatering. The complete process entails large volumes of water that is recycled with various solids content.
Clarification of this water is typically performed by a thickener with the use of coagulants and flocculants. The objective of this thickener is to recover clean, low-turbidity water from the tailings. Clean water is vital for the efficiency of the entire process.
We have helped our customers maintain the dewatering process for many years. Our high-quality polymer products are proven performers in prep-plant thickeners. Chinafloc's polymers have the correct charge, molecular weight, and characteristics that enable coal dewatering to be as robust and consistent as possible.
Although essential to a modern society, the process of separating metals could become harmful to the environment.
One component of this potential damage is through contamination of water. Inorganic components are mobilized through various mining processes including vaporization (smelting, autoclave, etc.) or solubilization (process water or natural waters leading to mineral dissolution).
Major inorganic contaminants are generally classified as either metallic (Hg, Cd, Cu, etc.) or oxyanionic (negatively charged inorganic compounds with various degrees of oxidation, e.g. SOx, POx, SeOx, AsOx, etc.).
Arsenic and selenium are among the list of oxyanionic contaminants of substantial concern due to their toxicity and potential to bioaccumulate. The US Government agencies continue to issue legislation and recommendations to lower allowable levels for selenium discharge into the environment. This has led to tighter restrictions on discharge permits.
There are various techniques and technologies available for removing inorganic contaminants from aqueous systems, all of which have advantages and disadvantages. A broad range of contaminant removal technologies and applications expertise are required to select the most cost effective treatment system.
Our portfolio of coagulants includes metal precipitants, organic coagulants, and both iron and aluminum coagulants in various concentrations in liquid or dry form. We are one of the largest suppliers of iron coagulants with an extensive network of production facilities in different regions around the world.
