Dense Media Separation Powders are used in the Dense Media Separation process. This process involves the separation of Diamonds or other minerals from diamond / mineral bearing material by means of a heavy liquid. The heavy liquid is formed by adding Dense Media Separation Powders, namely Ferrosilicon, to water in order to reach a specific density.
DMS Powders is a leading producer of Dense Media Separation powders for this purpose, namely Milled and Atomised Ferrosilicon. If you require the use of Milled or Atomised Ferrosilicon products for the Dense Media Separation of Diamonds, contact DMS Powders today. We supply a range of Ferrosilicon grades, and will help you to determine the best grade of product for your specific application and use.
Coarse, Fine, Cyclone 60, Cyclone 40, DMS 70
65D, 100D, 150D, 270D, 270F
Dense Media Separation uses the forces of gravity to separate particles with different densities. Once the pulp is formed by adding Dense Media Separation Powders to water in order to reach a desired density, the diamond-bearing material is then submerged into the heavy liquid, to separate the diamonds from other particles. This process is also referred to as a sink-float method, as heavier particles will sink whilst lighter particles will float. The process is widely used in the diamond processing industry, easily separating diamonds from other material. There are different grades of Ferrosilicon powders available, and a number of factors to consider when choosing your Ferrosilicon product. The properties of the Ferrosilicon powders can impact the Dense Media Separation process. These properties include:
Once the medium density is determined, the stability and viscosity will then determine the appropriate ferrosilicon grade for your Dense Media Separation Process.
