Our solutions for mineral processing
Focus on... insoluble micronutrients
To facilitate their use, liquid suspensions of micro nutrients require stability and low viscosity.
Rheosperse™ grinding aids, dispersing agents and anti-settling additives are typically focused on the control of these key properties.
Dispersing minerals particles into water
Dispersed into water, minerals are easier to handle, pump, grind and transport.
To do so, it is necessary to deflocculate the mineral particles in the smallest possible amount of water while having a stable slurry at low viscosity.
Anti settling agent to improve water mineral suspension stability
Mineral suspensions can be stored for several days or weeks and transported by truck or pipeline.
To control viscosity, prevent sedimentation over a wide range of particle sizes, Coatex offers anti-settling additives, Rheosperse™ S serie.
They are used to stabilize suspensions of carbonates, phosphates, copper sulphate, lime and other water insoluble minerals and micro nutrients.
Let's focus on...
Wet grinding is a commonly used process in mineral industry because of its high efficiency and its weak energy consumption.
The use of a grinding agent allows:
- to increase the production yield,
- to control the particle size distribution,
- to increase mineral concentrations.
Opale™ customized solutions for mining activites
Every ore, mineral or mineral blends reacts differently depending on its composition, its solubility in water and the affinities within the components.
Therefore, most stages of the mining industry, grinding, hydrotransportation or tailings management require different solutions:
- to improve energy and water savings with higher solids content,
- To get a get a better productivity and possible debottlenecking.
