Clean-iX® for Metals Recovery

Quick Links

Clean-iX® for Metals Recovery from Multotec was developed by Multotec’s Australian partner Clean TeQ, and is built on the foundations of continuous ion exchange technology.

The Clean-iX® process uses the principles of continuous counter-current ion exchange, providing you with highly-efficient and cost-effective extraction, concentration and separation processes.

Clean-iX® is tailored for recovering, among others, gold, uranium, rare earths and base metals and makes use of Continuous Resin-In-Column (cLX) for extraction from clarified leach solutions; Continuous Resin-In-Pulp (cRIP) for =extraction from leached pulp; Continuous Resin-In-Leach (cRIL) to reduce leaching reagents; and Clean TeQ’s patented U-Column Elution for the production of a high purity eluate.
