Diamond pan puddle control (1 reply)

Hi, I have extensive experience in DMS for a number of commodities however, I have been asked to investigate the use of rotary pans for the recovery of diamonds. I have spent some time on the web trying to find a fairly detailed process flow diagram / process flow description to help me fully understand the process, especially the control of the puddle (porrel) to no avail. Anyone out there that can assist?

Regards Jan

Hi Ian,

I can help you with your investigations, having been involved with the operation and design of diamond pans in South Africa, Brazil and Australia.

I have design calculations as well.
