Gold Recovery with Centrifugal Gravity Concentrator

Gold Recovery with Centrifugal Gravity Concentrator

Here is how a gravity gold concentrator (centrifuge) works as a separator:centrifugal gravity concentrator & falcon concentrator principle working

  1. Make sure the concentrator has been correctly assembled and that all bolts have been tightened.
  2. If required, attach a funnel to the material feed inlet.
  3. If necessary, connect a hose to the tailings outlet.
  4. Place the concentrator on a raised structure such as blocks.
  5. Place a receptacle under the barrel to collect the concentrate.
  6. Make sure the water and electricity are properly connected.
  7. Make sure the bowl inside the concentrator can spin freely

Open the process water valve so that the pressure is within the operating range (70-120 kPa / 10-17 psi).
gold_concentrator_start Press the “run” button. The bowl will start spinning
gold_concentrator_speed_adjustment Press the “increase speed” button until the display shows 45 Hz
concentrator_feed Feed slurry into the concentrator. The particles must be smaller than 2 mm
gold_stop  After about 30-60 minutes, stop feeding slurry into the concentrator.
concentrator_water Reduce the process water pressure.
2 Press the “decrease speed” button until the display shows 5 Hz.
wash_gold Open the rinse water valve and use the rinse hose to wash all the concentrate from the bowl.
gold_pan Collect the concentrate from the receptacle for further processing
gold_feed Close the rinse valve and open the process water valve (70-120 kPa / 10-17 psi). Then repeat Step 5 to Step 10.
