Top business benefits

Increased metal recovery

Increased mine productivity

Improved operational efficiency

Reduced maintenance costs

Ionic composition regulator that regulates the quality of flotation water.

In more detail

Full description

If a mine is to run at optimal efficiency, it must recover the vast bulk of the metal it mines. The water quality in the flotation system is a major contributing factor to achieving optimal metal recovery.

The challenge

Poor metal recovery is a major contributing factor when it comes to poor mine productivity. If a mine is to run at optimal efficiency, it must recover the vast bulk of the metal it mines. Yet, this is a problem that many mines still struggle with. The water quality in the flotation system is key to achieving optimal metal recovery.

The approach

Developed specifically to improve flotation processes in ore-dressing plants, this ionic composition system regulates the quality of recycled water used in flotation. It automatically monitors ionic composition and releases reagents enabling it to reach increased recoveries of the valuable metals.

As an additional benefit, it reduces harmful magnesium and calcium anions. This means that less maintenance is required for pipes and plumbing, as there is less overgrowing of insoluble carbonates. This system increases metal recovery, boosts mine output and cuts maintenance costs.
