Thickener optimization

Thickener optimization

Thickening is the separation of suspended particles from a liquid by gravity settling and A thickener is a machine that dewaters slurry, separating the liquid from the solids. In fact, most mineralrefining processes go through a solidliquid separation in a thickener at some point in their processing.

Thickener Operation

Thickener Operation

Jan 26, 2015 · Higher flocculant dosages, within a normal dosage rate range, will result in higher % solids. The % solids is typically limited by the thickener's ability to transfer mud from the thickener and pumping the underflow because viscosity and slurry density increases dramatically with increasing % .
