Floatex density separator...

Capable classifier The fully automated Floatex density separator is a proven technology for classifying particles based on size and/or density. Versatile in operation, the units can be sized to treat 1-600 tph. Performance of a traditional wet-gravity separation circuit is greatly improved with the introduction of a Floatex unit and at less cost. All in all, Floatex density separators set the standard for unit and circuit efficiency....

Effective classification and separation...

The Floatex density separator is a hindered settling classifier that has been continuously developed and perfected for more than 30 years. Initially, Floatex units proved their utility for the more precise classification of glass and construction sands. More recently, units have been integrated into separation circuits where they complement and enhance the separation of a broad range of mineral species or contaminating particles....

Today, in addition to industrial minerals, Floatex separators are routinely used in iron, chromite, and titanium ore operations where the more immediate and higher recovery of quality products allows for simpler and less costly operations. In glass sand operations, Floatex units are routinely used to answer the challenges of increasing size and quality specifications. Separators range from laboratory to industrial scale, and the applications from simple to complex. Incorporating Floatex technology, customers are now able to meet the high demands of an ever-changing industry....

Hindered settling A brief explanation The uniform introduction of a rising current of water across the bottom of a tank will cause the contained particles to expand into a state of teeter. By monitoring and controlling the apparent density of the teetered suspension a dense media is created. Particles of greater mass will migrate downward and thereby "hinder the settling" of particles of less mass. The particles of less mass will be dispersed into the upper levels of the tank, carried by the current of water, where they may reside in more open suspension. In the minerals industry this teetered suspension is often used to "float ...
