Mineral flotation: Evaluate and optimize flotation performance through the application of specialty and commodity flotation reagents. Investigative parameters include:
- Mass yield
- Froth characteristics
- Optimum reagent suite and selection
- Optimum grind
- Optimum flotation time
Dedust agent performance: Quantitatively evaluate the performance of dedust agents in the Univar Solutions dedust tower.
Sedimentation: Evaluate dewatering systems and find optimal flocculant and coagulant products for optimal performance.
- Flocculent and coagulant selection and dosing
- Underflow density
- Overflow clarity
- Thickener/clarifier sizing
Jaw crusher: Crushes 4-inch rocks down to 0.25 inches at a rate of 50 pounds/hour
Cone crusher: Crushes the under-size material from the jaw crusher to 80% passing minus 10 mesh size
Gilson TS-1: Handles and screens larger sample batches
Grinding mill: Comminution of ore samples to a specific test grind that is amenable to flotation
D-12 Laboratory flotation machine: Floatation of ground ore
Pressure and vacuum filter: Dewatering of tailings and concentrates recovered from the batch flotation process
Rotap: Particle size distribution analysis using various Tyler mesh screens
Pulverizer: Finer grinding of concentrates and tailings for maximum liberation prior to assaying
