Separation of fine heavy minerals has been made easier with Multotec’s ranges of mineral spiral concentrators. Our gravity concentration products separate fine heavy mineral sizes from 1.5 mm to 0.04 mm and are ideal for iron ore, chrome, mineral sands and high density ores.
Available in the HX3, HX5 and SC ranges, the modular housing frames house two spiral assemblies and have a number of optional features that can be fully dismantled for retrofitting. Componentry includes the spiral trough, auxiliary or sliding splitters, launders, distributor and piping, feed box and product box with product splitters – all with salient features to provide longer life, increased production and ease of repair, and reduced downtime.
Northern Chrome Producers has seen a 6% increase of additional yield in plant recoveries since they retrofitted Multotec’s HX3 and HX5 mineral spiral concentrators in February 2015. Each of these mineral spiral concentrators, part of Multotec’s gravity concentration equipment within its range of mineral processing equipment, have feed tonnage capacities ranging from 4 – 9 tons per hour per start.
