High-end separation equipment solutions

Gravity separation is the separation of two or more minerals of different specific gravity by their relative movement in response to the force of gravity and one or more other forces (such as centrifugal, drag or buoyant forces). The resistance to motion, known as drag force, by a medium such as heavy media, water or even air, is one such force.

Dense media separation utilises a medium with a density in between the density of the ore and the gangue (commercially worthless) particles. When introduced to this medium, particles either float or sink, depending on their density, as relative to the medium. Separation using this method relies solely on differences in density, without relying on other characteristics such as particle weight or shape.

Our gravity and density separation products include cyclones, dense medium drums and baths, and REFLUX™ classifiers.
