Comminution : ALS

Comminution pilot-plant capabilities include a permanent pilot AG/SAG milling circuit installation. The mill is one of the few remaining 6' x 2' high aspect units in the world still in operation. This. instrumental pilot plant allows circuit changes to be brought to steady-state more rapidly and avoids wasted pilot plant time.

Comminution | Centre for Minerals Research

Comminution is a process of reducing the size of ore particles to liberate the minerals in preparation for extraction in downstream processes, and classification is installed to ensure that liberated minerals enter the recovery section of the process plant and those not ready are recycled.

Flotation | Centre for Minerals Research

Froth flotation is the follow-on operation, after comminution and classification, in the process of liberating and separating minerals by exploiting the differences in physical properties of the different minerals that make up an ore. Froth flotation is achieved when particles are separated based on their surface potential.

Integrated Optimisation of Grinding and Flotation Circuits

Traditionally, comminution and flotation have been surveyed, analysed and optimised separately. This often results in less than optimal outcomes because of the complex interactions between the two processes. Flotation recovery is a strong function of the valuable mineral particle size distribution with lower recovery of ultra-fines due to poor flotation kinetics, optimum recovery for the ...
