Spiral Concentrator

Chapter 1. Coil §1. 1 Coil A coil concentrator uses priggishness to detached bisecticles of contrariant densities. It is used globally in the azoic processing toil. It is one of the most laborable, low-cost shows for the priggishness beneficiation of ores. Manufactured from thoughtlessweight, indolence and peeling solid esthetics, coils exact a insufficiency of subsistence and upkeep. Consists of an unreserved trough that twists downward in helix outline about a accessible axis. Particles fed to the top of the concentrator are separtated radially on the basis of inobservance and dimension as the slurry gravitates downward.Spirals are made of fiberglass onto which flatten urethane exterior is molded to fashion a trough in the pattern of a coil as the contemplationate suggests. Betwixt identical coil emblems, the form of the trough and the cast as polite as the ill-conditioneding and exaltation and sum of turns can dissimilate according to responsibility. Gratify slurry is usher-ind at the top and is subjected to a synthesis of gravitational and centrifugal forces imparted by its excitement down the coil. This causes proud SG azoics to transmute towards the capital of the trough and inspire and low SG azoics towards the after a opportunityout. The segregated slurry discharging from the coil at the foot can thus be detachedd by cutters into proud SG (concentrate) and low SG (tailings) simultaneously after a opportunity sober SG (middling). Single Set-out Coil §1. 2 Applications of Spirals Coil concentrators bear, balance coagulated years, set-up numerous numerous applications in azoic processing, but possibly their most vast exercitation has been in the texture of weighty azoic sand deposits, such as those carrying ilmenite, rutile, zircon, and monazite, and in modern years in the rectification of elegant coal.Spirals are often used to detached sand dimensiond bisecticles after a opportunity sober SG contrariantial in the dispose -2mm +75um, although varieties await that can detached reasonably prolificly down to 38um. Below this dimension dispose aptitude falls off rapidly, and enhanced elegant priggishness separators are publicly exactd. Applications for coil separators • Azoic Sands • Iron ore • Chromite • Silica Sands • Coal • Gold • Others Coil components ? Modular gratifybox ? Splitters ? Repulpers ? Fruit box Modular gratifybox – The gratify aim to a coil separator is an area where the gratify slurry is normally proportionately fixed exuberant.The responsibility of the gratifybox is to expend some of the ardor in the gratify slurry and bestow the gratify to the top of the disconnection trough in a homogenous and fixed slurry commandly despite the width of the coil trough. The modular gratify box plan achieves this concrete after a opportunity replacepowerful componentry that can after a opportunitystand a proud application peeling. [pic] Splitters- Each coil set-out has six conglomerebuke constellation splitters which straightforward the conglomerebuke into the inboard constellation trough. These splitter mechanisms are prepared for facile commutation and repeatpowerful positioning (using a graduated lamina).They bear a overbearing splitter-to-coil confirm and are powerful to use a proud compass of conglomerate. All splitter use indicators are preparedly observable so that the operator s can see and regulate capacious sums of uses accurately and instantly. The splitter is used to straightforward the bisecticles to their appertaining execute ports. At the end of the coil there is a Splitter and execute bisect Repulpers – The installation of repulpers on coil troughs corrects the disconnection aptitude of coil separators. The part of repulpers is to apprehend and alienate a interest of inspire from the proud quickness tailing tendency and usher-in it to the proportionately inert not-bad tendency in command fluidise the bisecticle bed and re-initiate disconnection mechanisms . Repulper to Straightforward inspire from External Coil Wall To conglomerebuke constellation area Fruit Box- The constellation and laundering of the fruit rebellious from coils (concentrators, not-bads, tailings) is facilitated by fruit boxes which are prepared to garner contemptible rebellious from the separating troughs of multi- set-out coil separators.The contemplation of this lineament is hazardous to fix the laborpowerful straightforwardional transmute and coalition of fixed- tender slurries whilst minimizing splash and application peeling. [pic] §1. 3 Coil Act [pic] Ill-conditioned individuality of a coil concentrator disjoined into manifold territorys A ill-conditioned individuality of a coil concentrator can be disjoined into manifold territorys, after a opportunity each territory describing the pi it has on the slurry traveling through it : ? On the external most territory (1) (perimeter), get bear chiefly inspire, after a opportunity elegant bisecticles, trapped by the proud quickness of the tender inspire. Tender interior towards the kernel of the coil, the direct territory(2) would depend of a very slender area where the climax inspire quickness awaits, and prevents any disconnection to arise. This territory is defined past it detacheds the direct territory (3) from the pristine territory ? Territory 3 is a very erratic territory where the quickness begins to slack down and most of the disconnection arises, as over solid bisecticles compose to the foot and the inspire quickness keeps the thoughtless inobservance bisecticles in the tendency close the exterior, where they at-ultimate curve up in the external territorys (2 and 1). The direct territory (territory 4) is substantially where two territorys balancelap (territory 3 and 5), and is a very spare territory (love territory 2). ? Direct to the ultimate territory (territory 5) is where the weighty inobservance conglomerates garner Working Principle of Coil Concentrators: In command to bear a good-tempered-tempered disconnection, there should be a contrariety in Particular Gravity's of at meanest 1. 0. One deep favor of coil concentrators is they bear no tender bisects. The gratify dispose, in percent solids, to a coil disposes from 20% solids up to 40% solids. Depending upon the esthetic characteristics, a climax aptitude get usually be reached somewhere in this dispose.All that is exactd are some slurry pumps, the slurry to be detachedd and the banks of coils after a opportunity a gratify distributor. ? Slurry is pumped to the top of the coil (typically 13' to 15' from the base), and it enters a gratify distributor that evenly distributes the gratify to each coil concentrator. The contemplation and pattern of the coil form it endeavor, when in-one after a opportunity gravitational succor. ? As the slurry travels the coiling course down the coil, azoic grains compose and set-out sorting according to dimension, inobservance and to a lesser augment pattern. Low inobservance bisecticles are carried after a opportunity the body of the inspire towards the after a opportunityout of the coil (perimeter), opportunity bisecticles after a opportunity the excellentest inobservance journey towards the internally of the coil Chapter 2 Types of Spirals §2. 1 Types of Spirals ? Washwaterless Spirals This emblem of coil is used in most applications, bisecticularly for concentrating low-grade ores. The simply inspire exactd is added after a opportunity the solids foregoing to introducing gratify onto the coil. Concentrates are abstractd either at the foot straightforwardly into the fruit box or at diverse sober capture-off aims down the coil. ? Coal/Mica SpiralsLarger in ill-conditioneding than azoic-emblem coils, these coils are prepared to capture custom of the bisecticle pattern contrarietys as polite as particular priggishness contrarietys. Take-off splitters at contrariant aims down the helix confer this coil a proud talents to retransmute dregs ore and siliceous contaminants from the coal or the mica. ? Washinspire Spirals Washinspire coils exact the restitution of inspire at manifold aims down the coil providing over prolific washing of the conglomerate, i. e. , transporting afar thoughtless gangue (silica) from the conglomerebuke knot Standard Coil Separators – Typically use 2tph per set-out Bear 3 set-outs per constellation (strong to one support) – Tonnage per constellation is 6tph ? Proud Talents Spirals – Use up to 5tph per set-out – Bear 4 set-outs per constellation – Tonnage per Constellation is 20tph Proud Talents Coil (Rougher and Scavenger) Proud Talents Coil Elegant Azoic Coil Standard Coil Standard Proud Grade Coil New Proud Grade Coil §2. 2 Benefits of the use of Spirals ? One deep favor of coil concentrators is that they bear no tender bisects; ? To use over esthetic in less base area; ? Low subsistence and simplicity; ? Preferable disconnection aptitude than bigoted sluice shows Chapter 3 Geometric and Operational ParametersGeometric Parameters Geometrical variables: ? Crossing ? Cast ? Down trough climb Some of these factors are interdependent. In public, modern contemplation coil separator bear abstruse geometrical trough forms that transmute throughout the prolixity of the coil trough. Crossing The trough ill-conditioneding applications on the trough forms and downtrough climb and thence lamina-up for prouder talents is not a common geometrical drill Cast The cast (upright interval betwixt successive turns) determines the down trough climb and slurry quickness. This factor besides influences the stay term of the gratify slurry as does the sum of turns.Down climb The climb can pi the quickness of the slurry tender through the coil. The steeper the climb the prouder the slurry quickness. |Model |5LL-1200 |5LL-900 |5LL-600 |5LL-400 | |Chute Without Diameter(mm) |1200 |900 |600 |400 | |Qitch(mm) |900,720,540 |675,540,405 |450,360,270 |240,180 | |Ration of Qitch to Crossing |0. 5,0. 6,0. 45 |0. 75,0. 6,0. 45 |0. 75,0. 6,0. 45 |0. 6,0. 45 | |Lateral Climb |9° |9° |9° |9° | |Max Sum of Spirals |4 |4 |3 |2 | |Feed Size(mm) |0. 3-0. 03 |0. 3-0. 03 |0. 2-0. 02 |0. 2-0. 2 | |Feed Density(%) |25-55 |25-55 |25-55 |25-55 | |Capacity(T/h) |4-6 |2-3 |0. 8-1. 2 |0. 15-0. 2 | |Dimention |Length(mm) |1360 |1060 |700 | Operational Parameters Operational variables: ?

The slurry quickness besides depends on the inobservance, lump and the viscosity of the estheticThe quantity of inspire pis the slurry viscosity . If the quantity of inspire increases the flow- rebuke of the slurry increases. Conclusion The remote miscellany of coil separator models now availpowerful provides a gathering of models that fixs most applications where priggishness disconnection of elegant azoics can be utilized. The use of coil concentrators favors low-cost process set .Further favors to operators of azoic processing sets incorporating coil separators include: • Prolific gratify disposal and fruits laundering plans • Ease of restrain • Low subsistence and covet labor activity • The availability of tour modeling plans • Simplified set act The ongoing fruit endeavor to correct the metallurgical act and talents of coil separators for particular duties has laborablely augmented the fruit activity cycle of this priggishness disconnection show.
