The earlier versions of OXFLOAT CTC3 had been in production since 1972 and currently Oxflo’s manufacturing partner supplies 700 mt of this product to their local market annually. They have a further manufacturing capacity of 800 mt, taking them to a total of 1500 mt per year.
Currently OXFLOAT CTC3 has displaced AM2 at one of the African operations, with further plants soon to follow. African Copper in Botswana, a company which has used AM2 for 3 years, will be running a 14 plant trial with OXFLOAT CTC3 on their next oxide copper stockpile.
Oxflo’s policy is to test reagents prior to dispatch. In addition to testing the chemical content of the reagents, a sample of ore will be delivered to our manufacturing facility where metallurgical testing on the production batch will ensure that the expected performance is achieved.
