Filter presses for minerals - Mining
MSE filter presses are used in processing plants of the mining industry due to the positive aspect of the great process-technical flexibility among other things. The most frequent applications are the dewatering of fine coal and coal tailings (finest fractions) as well as the solid-liquid separation of the ore concentrate suspension concentrated by flotation and subsequently separated from mineral by-products. At this point, metals such as zinc, iron and copper are extracted, but precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum are also extracted in corresponding mines in the form of a puncture-proof filter cake. Membrane filter presses are preferably used here to achieve quantitatively high yields in cake washing and high dry matter contents by means of squeezing processing.
MSE Filterpressen® has proven itself in this context. Our filter presses – with their adapted dewatering technology and the associated special design-typical features for this application – enable a fast cycle time, high filtration speeds during filtration and dewatering of the suspensions as well as a low residual water content of the resulting filter cake solids. These properties and an optimised and efficient design of the processes for the application are of great importance with regard to the requirement for high capacities and above all from an economic point of view.
