Flocculants are used in the mining industry to treat the water used in mineral extraction and flotation processes. They help aggregate fine suspended particles to form larger flocs so that the solids can more easily be separated from the water. Flocculants are used to clean flotation process water to reduce reagent consumption and improve recovery. They are also employed to treat discharge water so that stringent environmental standards can be met.
ArrMaz offers a wide range of flocculants to optimize performance for a variety of applications. Our CustoFloc™ line of products includes:
- Water Clarification Aids – polymers used at mines to clean muddy water to allow for recycling and/or environmentally acceptable clean water discharge
- Clay Settling Aids – polymers that enable dispersed clay to consolidate faster, allowing clean water to be recycled back to flotation plants
- Phosphate Rock Slurry Thickening Aids – polymers used to increase phosphate rock slurry concentrate grade prior to use in the phosphoric acid reactor.
ArrMaz’s technical experts will work closely with you to select the best flocculant for your application. In addition, we can provide polymer make-down, feed and metering equipment when required. Dispersants and coagulants are also available to meet your specific needs.
