GRAVITY SEPARATION - LAB SINK/FLOAT and SHAKING TABLE

Gravity separation is a main process in wet processing of minerals and also in recycling industry:

  • separation of heavy minerals from silica sands and feldspar containing sands
  • processing of chromite and barite
  • wet recycling of foundry sands and recovery of chromite and bauxite for used foundry sands
  • separation of mica, coal and organic materials from silica sands
  • recovery of finely divided copper, aluminium and precious metals in the recycling industry

Shaking table are for these application first choice.

For pretesting in the range of 100 g a sink/float process using sodium polytungstate solution can be use - for testing in kg range a laboratory shaking table of Holman-Wilfley is available.

Dr. Jakobs GmbH do has a wide spectrum of references in the field of gravity separation - from recycling to processing of ultra high purity quartz.
