Some blended fertilizers may be prone to an undesired chemical process: deliquescence. Deliquescence typically becomes an issue when fertilizer granules are transported or as they are applied to the soil at the farm. This undesired moisture uptake negatively affects the economics of both the companies handling these fertilizers and the growers using them.
Recently, ArrMaz, the leading supplier of specialty solutions which optimize mining process performance and efficiency, partnered with a spodumene mineral processor that wanted to produce a more concentrated, battery-grade spodumene product.
To meet the needs of Brazil’s sophisticated phosphate processing operations, ArrMaz has engineered superior solutions to maximize Brazil phosphate grade and recovery for selective phosphate flotation while depressing iron and other contaminates.
The October issue of Mining Magazine showcases an ArrMaz case study on lithium flotation as part of its flotation feature. The case study discusses how ArrMaz recently helped a spodumene producer exceed grade and recovery targets while reducing collector consumption by 68%.
The October issue of World Fertilizer features an article in which our Director of Coatings Technology, Lucas Moore, discusses key criteria that should be considered when evaluating fertilizer dust control coatings.
