Separations in Mining and Oil Sands Operations

Separation of water from fine tailings in mining and oil sands operations has been a challenge.  To speed water recycle, the density of dispersed particles is increased to form sediments. Continue reading

Engineering Fine Particle Size Distributions with Inline Particle Size Measurements

Crystal engineering is applied when the crystal size distribution is too large to meet downstream specifications. By designing the crystallization to produce a fine crystal distribution in situ, downstream milling operations are avoided, thus improving the yield, and reducing energy consumption or safety hazards which may arise due to milling.
