Mineral Concentrate Marketing – Treatment Charges & Penalties

From the above explanation of the effect of the various constituents of ores on smelter practice, one can readily see that the maximum return is obtained when lead, copper or zinc concentrates are shipped to the respective plants which specialize in their treatment. For example

Flotation Material Balancing Excel Solver: Mass Balance Calculations Example

example-material-balance-calculations-using-excel-spreadsheetFor a flotation circuit, material balance calculations define an engineering problem where flow parameters between unit operations are partly known. The purpose of a material balancing is to mathematically examine the known flow parameters to solve for the unknown flow parameters. Two main types of material balances are commonly made:

  • design material balance
  • operating plant material balance.

The design

Flotation Simulation & Modelling Software to Improve Grade & Recovery Metallurgy

In this video EMC Supasim flotation simulation program is used to simulate the performance of a copper lead zinc plant in southern Spain. Flotation kinetics of key streams are generated by conducting bench scale rate tests on either a laboratory prepared sample of mill feed

Timed Flotation Test & Cumulative Grade Recovery Curve

grade-recovery-over-timed-flotationApart from conducting a rate test in the correct manner, it’s important to collect the right number of concentrates and at the right times; doing this will ensure that the data you generate maximizes your analysis of flotation response. To properly define the relationship between recovery and time, you need a minimum of four concentrates
