Key benefits of chemical additives
It is important to note that the selection and application of chemical additives in ore and mineral processing require careful consideration of factors such as ore type, mineralogy, process conditions, and environmental impact. Extensive research and development efforts are dedicated to developing new and improved additives that offer enhanced performance, lower environmental impact, and improved cost-effectiveness in particular the efficiency of dewatering processes and reduce water consumption.
Focus on dispersants
Particle size control
It is worth noting that the selection and optimization of dispersants in mineral processing require careful consideration of factors such as particle size distribution, mineralogy, pH, and process conditions. Different dispersants may exhibit varying degrees of effectiveness depending on the specific mineral system and processing requirements. Therefore, extensive laboratory testing and pilot-scale trials are typically conducted to identify the most suitable dispersant and dosage for a particular ore or mineral. Therefore, our team is at your service to help you select the more suitable additive.
