Tailoring solutions to customer's needs
We produce depressants for froth flotation for several mineral ore systems. Our DLM range of depressants can be customized for any system requirements in order to achieve a higher percentage of recovery and a higher percentage of purity. The DLM range includes natural and modified polysaccharides (i.e. cellulose and galactomannan) designed to be used during froth flotation of pulps containing silicate gangues (such as Talc, Kaolinite, Lizardite, Muscovite, Chlorite, Pyrophillite, Sericite, etc.) and hydrophobic minerals. DLMs are designed to be completely compatible with most flotation systems currently used worldwide.
Several chemicals are necessary in the iron ore pellet production process.
We have developed the POLYBINDER family, a silica free organic binder range that can be used instead of bentonite, filtering agent for pneumatic filter and antidust.
In our well-equipped laboratories we are ready to study the optimum dosage directly on the customers’ iron ore and to develop a customized formulation. The selected products are available for testing in the customers’ pilot plant or directly in industrial production.
Our safe and cost effective polymeric viscosity boosters increase the bentonite rheological properties (OCMA-API specs; higher suspending properties for HDD and Civil Engineering; filtrate control; binding properties etc) even when the addition of soda ash or other ion exchange additives do not allow to meet the desired rheological properties.
Our CARBOCEL bentonite extenders are based on CMC (carboxymetylcellulose) and BENTOPLUS are based on synthetic polymers.
