Introduction of High Efficiency Concentrator

A high-efficiency concentrator, also referred to as a thickener or agitator, is an equipment used in the beneficiation process for concentrate and tailings dehydration. Its main purpose is to increase the slurry concentration from 20-30% to 40-70%. This process brings significant advantages, such as improved utilization of backwater, increased concentration of bottom flow, and environmental protection.

It is essential to understand that a high-efficiency concentrator is not a simple sedimentation device. Rather, it is a new type of dehydration equipment that combines the characteristics of mud layer filtration. There exist different types of high-efficiency concentrators, including central transmission type, peripheral transmission type, sludge, intermittent type, vertical flow, and continuous thickener. Each type provides efficient and effective solutions tailored to the specific requirements of thickening processes.

High Efficiency Concentrator

The high-efficiency concentrator has several distinctive features that set it apart:

  1. Enhanced settling: It utilizes flocculants to increase the particle size of settling solids, resulting in a faster settling rate.
  2. Inclined plate installation: By incorporating inclined plates, the concentrator reduces the settling distance for ore particles and expands the settling area, improving efficiency.
  3. Multifunctional capabilities: The concentrator can perform multiple functions such as flocculation, filtration, and compression. This enhances its capability to handle thick mud layers effectively.
  4. Automated control: The concentrator is equipped with comprehensive automatic control features, ensuring efficient and convenient operation.

The Structure Device of High Efficiency Concentrator

Thickener pool: It is the main body of the concentrator, where the pulp is collected and settles. The thickener pool is designed to accommodate a large volume of slurry.

Transmission device: This device is responsible for transmitting the rotation of the motor to the central shaft of the concentrator, ensuring the smooth operation of the equipment.

Lifting device: It is used to lift the rake arms or scraper blades within the thickener pool. The lifting device helps to keep the concentration surface clean and even.

Feeding device: This component is responsible for introducing the pulp into the thickener pool. It ensures a consistent and controlled flow of slurry for efficient concentration.

Unloading device: Once the concentration process is complete, the unloading device removes the concentrated material from the bottom of the thickener pool. This allows for the separation and collection of the concentrated product.

Signal safety device: This device is designed to monitor and control the operation of the concentrator. It ensures the safety and reliability of the equipment by providing alerts or automatically shutting down the system in case of abnormal conditions.

By utilizing these components, the high-efficiency concentrator facilitates the aggregation and settling of ore particles, leading to increased concentration efficiency and improved overall performance.

Applications of High Efficiency Concentrator

Concentration and enrichment: The concentrator is used to increase the concentration of ores, minerals, and other solid materials by separating the valuable components from the waste material.

Dehydration: It is employed for the removal of water from slurries, such as tailings or waste materials generated during the extraction and processing of minerals or ores.

Tailings treatment: The high-efficiency concentrator is utilized in concentrator factories for the treatment of tailings, which are the by-products of ore processing. It helps in reducing the water content and volume of tailings, making them easier to manage and transport.

Metallurgical industry: The concentrator is extensively used in the metallurgical industry for processes like ore concentrate thickening, dewatering, and tailings disposal.

Chemical industry: It finds application in chemical processing plants for the separation and concentration of various chemicals and materials.

Coal industry: The high-efficiency concentrator assists in coal preparation plants for solid-liquid separation and water recycling from coal slurry.

Non-metallic mineral processing: It is employed in the processing of non-metallic minerals like phosphate, limestone, silica, and more, for concentration and dewatering.

Environmental protection: The concentrator is used in wastewater treatment plants to separate suspended solids from water, aiding in the purification and reuse of water resources.

The high-efficiency concentrator’s versatile applications make it a valuable tool for various industries, enabling efficient concentration, dehydration, and tailings treatment processes.

High Efficiency Concentrator Application.jpg

The working principle of a high-efficiency concentrator involves two main aspects: increasing the size of solid particles and expanding the settlement area.

To increase the size of solid particles, a flocculant is added to the slurry in the concentrator. The flocculant helps the fine particles to agglomerate or come together, forming larger particles that settle more efficiently. This process improves the effectiveness of the settling process.

Another method to enhance concentration efficiency is the use of inclined plates in the concentrator. These plates increase the settlement area by providing more surface area for particles to settle. By reducing the distance that particles need to travel during settling, the concentration process becomes more efficient.

Tests and industrial production have shown the advantages of high-efficiency concentrators over ordinary thickeners. Even with the same processing capacity, a high-efficiency concentrator can have a smaller diameter (about two-thirds to half) and a smaller area (about one-ninth to one-fourth) compared to an ordinary thickener. This remarkable reduction in size does not compromise its processing capacity. In fact, high-efficiency concentrators can achieve several times to dozens of times higher processing capacity per unit area, resulting in significantly improved efficiency.
