GRAVITY SEPARATION

Shaking Table 3.png

Shaking Table 

A shaking table test is a physical experiment used in the process of mineral separation, which exploits differences in the density, shape, and size of minerals. The shaking table consists of a flat table with a series of riffles or grooves along its length, which are designed to trap the heavier mineral particles as the table is shaken back and forth. During the test, a sample of is placed onto the table and subjected to a controlled shaking motion. As the table shakes, the heavier minerals are concentrated in the riffles, while the lighter minerals are carried off the end of the table. This process is repeated multiple times with different samples, and the resulting mineral concentrates are collected and analyzed. Shaking table tests are used to assess the effectiveness of mineral separation techniques and to optimize the conditions for the separation process.

Sample Requirements: Minimum 5 kg

Knelson Concentrator

A Knelson Gravity Concentrator is a specialized centrifugal device designed for the efficient recovery of fine gold and other precious metals from ore. Developed by Canadian metallurgist Byron Knelson in the 1970s, this innovative technology harnesses centrifugal force to separate particles based on their specific gravity, allowing for highly effective concentration of heavy minerals. The Knelson concentrator has become a cornerstone in mineral processing, renowned for its high recovery rates and versatility in various ore types. Its ability to concentrate valuable minerals through gravitational forces has made it an integral tool in the mining industry, contributing significantly to the extraction of precious metals with enhanced efficiency.

Sample Requirements: Minimum 15 kg
