Eriez® Flotation Division (EFD) announces the release of a new white paper ti tled “A New Paradigm in Sulfide Processing,” written by Mike Mankosa, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Global Technology. This special report explores a split-feed circuit developed by EFD which was specifically engineered to extend the particle size range for sulfide flotation beyond what is achievable using current technology.
It has long been established that copper sulfide processing follows a logical progression – crush, grind, float, regrind and refloat to produce a final copper concentrate. Today, it is becoming more important for mining companies to challenge conventional recovery approaches. EFD's solution for improved recovery in sulfide processing incorporates two novel flotation technologies: the HydroFloat™ separator for coarse particle recovery (>150 microns) and the StackCell™ to improve fine particle recovery (
