Mineral Processing / Metallurgy Rules of Thumb

2021-2-19  Here is a list of General Rules of Thumb often used in Mineral Processing and Metallurgy: A concentrator (mill) requires up to 3 tons of water for each ton of ore processed. It is therefore important to operate with the maximum practical pulp density

This is the first of two blog posts on mineralogical modelling where we highlight some of the terminology used and misconceptions made. Part 2 will further develop the theme by comparing the value of using rule-of-thumb and probability -based particle modelling principals. Liberation

Rules of thumb for the hard rock miner and others.

2000-10-1  One 'unpublished' Rule of Thumb is that 80% of all Rules of Thumb are wrong. Not fearing controversy, we have plowed ahead with the Rules of Thumb project with the knowledge that, applied correctly, all of the Rules of Thumb are based on significant experience in the industry and add value to the decision-making process.

Improper use of detergents can actually “set” soils, making them more dif ficult to remove (e.g., acid cleaners can precipitate protein).

Rubber Processing Britannica

Rubber Rubber Processing: Rubber processing consists of four basic steps: (1) mastication, when the elastomer is sheared and the molecules are broken down to give easier flow, (2) mixing, usually carried out immediately after mastication, when additives are incorporated, (3) shaping of the viscous mass, for example, by extrusion or molding, and (4) curing, when the polymer molecules become

Crushing in Mineral Processing

2021-2-19  In mineral processing or metallurgy, the first stage of comminution is crushing. Depending of the type of rock (geometallurgy) to be crushed, there are 2 largely different techniques at your disposition for crushing rocks. In principle, compression crushing is used on hard and abrasive rocks by placing them between a high wear-resistant plate/surface. Less abrasive and softer rocks or stones

Ore Sorting Strategies In Mineral Processing

For successful mineral processing design it’s critical to evaluate the possibility of preconcentration or waste diversion before grinding. Mess up this step and you could be hit with avoidable downstream CAPEX and OPEX costs. At its core, preconcentration means exploiting particle differences as early as possible so that waste material isn’t unnecessarily fed to the mill and then deposited

The Costs of Owning and Operating Machinery

The cost of maintenance and repair, using my rules of thumb, amounted to $28,000 times 70 percent divided by 5,000 hours, which equals $3.92 per hour. For 1,000 hours of use per year, this comes to $3,920 per year, only part of which was accounted for by the business. Thus, the business should have been putting aside $5,000 + $1,500 + $3,920
