Optimal rpm agitation (1 reply)

Hello,

I have several tanks where I leach (CIP) gold ore, the solid / liquid ratio is 40% solids.  

The tanks are about 2 meters by 2 meters.  We have several air pipes adding air to aid the chemistry plus a central agitator.

I’d really appreciate if someone could tell me how to determine the optimal agitation speed to improve the chemical reactions?

Kind Regards,

 

J.

Best to talk to Mixtec in Perth. They have done good work for me in the past.

Cheers
