Gravity separation is the separation of two or more minerals of different specific gravity by their relative movement in response to the force of gravity and one or more other forces (such as centrifugal forces, magnetic forces, buoyant forces), one of which is resistance to motion (drag force) by a viscous medium such as heavy media, water or, less commonly, air.
CHAPTER-7 GRAVITY CONCENTRATION OF IRON ORE R. K. Rath and R. Singh INTRODUCTION Gravity concentration process is the oldest beneficiation method known to mankind. This is a physical process and exploits the differences in densities of minerals to bring about a separation.
A gravity separation equipment of separation different weight mineral by inertial centrifugal force pulp produced in helix turning motion Capacity 0.15～16t/h Product Improvement There are 3 kinds of chute for user to choose, glass steel chute, Xinhai wear-resistant rubber liner, polyurethane rubber liner.
The choice of the beneficiation treatment depends on the nature of the gangue present and its association with the ore structure. Several methods/techniques such as washing, jigging, magnetic separation, gravity separation, and flotation etc. are used to enhance the Fe content of the Iron ore and to reduce its gangue content.
