Grinding and Classification Circuit

Our EXAMPLE Grinding and Classification Circuit is designed to grind 500 tonnes of ore per day, operating 24 hours per day, with an availability of 95%.  This circuit will grind -5/8″ material from the Crushing Plant, classify the slurry in one of two cyclones, and pass 70% of the minus 200 mesh material to the mill feed Thickener

Hydrocyclone Feed Pump & Pressure PSI vs Operating Parameters

For a hydrocyclone to work at peak efficiency the volume of slurry and the feed pump delivery pressure must remain constant. If the cyclone feed pump is allowed to SURGE, the up and down pressure will cause poor separation at the point of high and low operating pressure.

The hydrocyclone operation consist of having the ore slurry pumped into its feed inlet, the ore is then separated by size with the fine material coming out of what is referred to as the “OVERFLOW” via a Vortex Finder. The mineral that still requires grinding is named
