High level wet classifi ion in mining is necessary for efficient size control of particles finer than 1 mm in water. There are different methods of wet classifi ion, but when the particles size range is 100-10 micron, hydrocyclones are the optimal choice.
If particle size of the ore feed is fine and the feed pressure is high, the ratio of the feeding port to the diameter of the hydrocyclone is usually maintained at 0.14 to 0.16. In addition, the shape of the feed port often rectangular and the feeding method tangent or involute also have some effect on the classifi ion efficiency.
The pertinent question for any mining company is if your selection of new solutions are based on high-performing, energy efficient technologies. In this post, we’ll share some of the key finding from our test program dedi ed to proving the performance of the Metso MHC Series hydrocyclones.
4. A Hydrocyclone can be modified to make a dry underflow while maintaining a high separation efficiency. A Hydrocyclone uses an air core, which forms at the apex and extends up to the vortex finder. The formation of this air core is paramount to making a separation, and if it collapses, the separation efficiency dramatically drops.
For coal and iron processing, similarly recovery efficiency is affected along with possible damage to the hydrocyclones and downstream equipment. To avoid these conditions and operate productively and reliably, the Mining Center of Excellence team developed Hydrocyclone Optimizer technology.
Due to the characteristics of simple structure, convenient operation, large production capacity, high classifi ion efficiency, small footprint, no transmission parts and easy automatic control, hydrocyclone is widely used in many fields. The role of hydrocyclone in beneficiation is mainly classifi ion and concentration.
The Cavex DE hydrocyclone is a double efficiency classifi ion unit, working as a single stage without the need for intermediate pumping. Cavex G4 The Cavex G4 hydrocyclone provides efficient classifi ion in Mineral processing including closed circuit grinding, tails disposal, desprm and flotation or gravity concentration.
