Water currently is an important factor for the processing of silica sand for use in the glass industry. High enery cost, huge water demand and remarkable area for waste water handling and sludge processing ....
The common opinion is, that using a 300 mm diameter magnetic roll separator you will get 4 times the capacity compared to a 100 mm roll diameter separator. That is a massive improvement – f.ex. 2 tons per hour per meter process width for silica sand on a 100 mm diameter roll you will get 8 tons per hour capacity for a 300 mm roll.
In our days the routine inspection of many things is obligatory and part of daily routines. Unfortunately - in the field of magnetic separation it is obvious, that once a system installed never will be checked again.
Dr. Jakobs GmbH received a consulting contract for an Australian high purity quartz (HPQ) project: The focus is on process development and coordination of test work but will extented to planning of processing plant and implementation of an advanced quality control system.
