(General Information Release February 2007)
The conventional flotation plant at Belaruskali operated a standard rougher, scavenger circuit followed by a cleaner and recleaner circuit. The cleaning and recleaning operation is now performed by a single pass through the IMF-V35. The feed rate is maintained at 350m3/hr (85 – 90 tph KCl) using Warman AHF froth pumps feeding the rougher concentrate where additional brine solution is added.
The single IMF-V35 is able to produce a concentrate product of 89% KCl which is comparable with the concentrate produced in the older cleaner – recleaner circuit. The single IMF-V35 could now replace the 4 cleaner and 3 recleaner conventional flotation cells.
A short video of the froth flow produced by the IMF-V35 in operation can be downloaded in the downloads section.
Initial results from the plant show that the concentrate produced by the IMF-V35 is rich in coarse particles greater than 1mm, further proving that pneumatic flotation is able to recover coarse particles as well as fine particles.
