Prior to the downstream process, scrubbing removes harmful compounds and coatings from minerals. Scrubbing equipment from PICS INTERNATIONAL, a prominent manufacturer of rotary equipment, uses material-on-material attrition to remove unwanted elements from your desired product. The undesirable material is separated as the material rotates on itself, and the desirable output is moved to the next step in the process. PICS INTERNATIONAL manufactures scrubbing equipment to satisfy your demands, whether you need to remove loamy, soluble clays, stiff plastic clays, soft rock, crusher dust, or other friable waste fractions.
Fines Recovery/Tailings & Water Management
PICS INTERNATIONAL provides tailings management technology to help processing industries comply with environmental and regulatory standards. Thickeners and Filter Presses both allow producers to decrease or eliminate tailings/settling ponds, recover process water for reuse, get solid fractions into a state that can be readily and safely stored, and generate a possible saleable product from the fines recovered. Recovering fines lowers pond maintenance costs and boosts pond life, while lowering or eliminating settling ponds improves site sustainability and frees up time and land.
PICS INTERNATIONAL offers a range of screens for separating minerals based on their size in order to generate distinct end products. Minerals are separated into particular particle sizes by a tumbling or vibrating motion that separates the material, depending on the equipment. Smaller particles pass through the screen medium, while bigger particles remain on the screen deck and are discharged at the conclusion of the operation. Screening equipment from PICS INTERNATIONAL may also be used to remove waste materials, reduce fines formation, and reduce crusher size.
What Is Minerals Processing?
Mineral processing, in general, is the process of separating valuable minerals from waste materials by processing ores and minerals. Minerals are recovered from their ores via a variety of procedures in minerals processing, including comminution, sizing, concentration, and dewatering. Minerals processing encompasses a wide range of businesses, including gold, coal, nickel, aluminium, oil sands, phosphate, potash, copper, iron ore, and many more.
