Copper Separation Machine

The copper ore coming from the mine must be concentrated by separation and beneficiation. The valuable minerals like chalcopyrite are intergrown with gangue. Therefore, in the first step the lumpy ore is crushed and milled into fine particles(< 100 μm) to liberate the individual mineral phases.

Typical equipment for crushing to about 20 cm are gyratory and cone crushers. Then wet grinding in semi-autogenous rod or autogenous ball mills takes place. Size classification takes is performed in cyclones. In the next step of beneficiation, valuable minerals and gangue are separated by froth flotation of the ore pulp, which exploits the different surface properties of the sulfidic copper ore and the gangue.

Copper Ore Flotation Equipment

CME is world leading manufacturer and supplier of mineral processing equipment. We developed complete series of copper ore separation machine for sale. Copper ore flotation equipment is the excellent choice for copper separation. Froth flotation is the standard method of concentration used in the copper industry. About 75 percent of all copper is produced by this method. The most significant technological development in flotation in recent years is the column flotation cell, which is being installed at most concentrators.

To obtain concentrates with highest possible purity and recovery rate, the flotation process usually consists of several stages which are controlled by expert systems. Various sensors for particle size, pH, density, and other properties are installed.
