Thickening Agent - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
Thickening operations are concerned primarily with solids recovery. Ideally, they are characterized by all particles settling at the same (hindered) rate. This is achieved by having (naturally) equisettling particles, by a sufficiently high initial concentration, or by theMineral Flotation, Mineral Processing, Training, Tails,,A number of mineral flotation sulfide, soluble salt and iron ore presentations for mill operators, techncial and management personnel that cover the fundamentals of mineral flotation separations, operation, optimization and chemical use; water treatment plant operator training and optimization; thickener system operation for operators and,Dewatering: An Increasingly Important Mineral Process | E & MJ,McLanahan’s director of process engineering for mineral processing, Scott O’Brien, explained the rationale for using this approach to dewatering. O’Brien said while using a thickener on its own will enable an operator to recover 80%-90% of the water in a slurry, the underflow will still contain enough water to make it difficult to handle.
