Design, manufacture and establish Paste thickener on laboratory and pilot scales in Iran Mineral Processing Research center

Design, manufacture and establish Paste thickeners were carried out on laboratory and pilot scales in Iran Mineral Processing Research center. This proceeding is due to preventing environmental pollution as well as saving on maintenance costs of industrial wastes

According to the Public Relations of IMPRC, design, manufacture and establish Paste thickeners were done in IMPRC in order to overcome the problem of water shortage in industries as well as prevent environmental pollutions and save on maintenance cost of industrial wastes. Design and manufacture stages of paste thickener were performed on laboratory and pilot scales with assistance of Tehran Univercity in Sep. 2018. 

Results of performed experiences of paste thickener on Gol-e-Gohar iron minerals wastes show that solid percents of thickener underflow in laboratory and pilot reached 57% and 65% respectively. This result caused water saving about 15% in paste thickener system compared with conventional ones and more, reducing environmental hazards and industrial current costs. dry solid capacity of the paste thickener in laboratory scale is 8.5 kg per hour and in pilot is 530 kg per hour.

Note that based on gotten experiences in design and performance of this type of thickener in IMPRC, it  has the ability of designing  and manufacture of paste thickener in industrial scale.

Acquiring technical knowledge of measuring the amount of processing drug in IMPRC

According to the pubic relation of IMPRC, environmental laboratory was able to acquire the technical knowledge of measuring the amount of processing drugs.

Considering the importance of environmental pollutants and also with the support of the HSEE unit, the Environmental Laboratory of the Mineral Processing Research Center last year gained technical know-how in measuring the amount of processing drugs (xanthate), one of the most important Organic collectors used in the flotation of sulfide minerals.

Considering the high consumption of these materials and its environmental damaging effects, taking into account the facilities and equipment of the center, the quantitative determination of the Xanthate as well as the provision of technical services on the quality of imported Xanthate to prevent the entry of poor ones, were on the agenda of the center.

Note that environmental laboratory of the center is ready to provide laboratory services to the mines, industries and companies importing Xanthate as the following:

Manganese processing in IMPRC

Experiences processing of manganese ore of Tandis stone company was carried out by using dense medium cyclone in pilot scale in IMPRC.

According to the Public Relations of IMPRC, Mn grade in feed is 11.8% which is upgraded to 40% after processing with varied special weights. Obtained concentrate with this grade is usable in industries and results shows that this process is economical. Conclusively, the company makes the decision of use IMPRC experiences in Manganese processing in industries scales.
