Dense medium separation (DMS), also known as Dense Media Separation, is a process where a suspension of dense powder in water is used to form a type of ‘heavier liquid’ to separate mineral particles in a sink-float process. Many modern dense media plants use this technology because it is both flexible and allows upgrading of resources thereby increasing overall profitability of the resource.
The correct application of the DMS technology can increase the recovery of minerals and diamonds and increase the separation efficiency of the scrap metal recycling process.

The reason why dense media separation is profitable is because it allows for the upgrading of previously unsaleable product to be upgraded into saleable product. Milled and Atomised Ferrosilicon powders are used in the dense media separation process. Separation efficiency is increased with the use of consistent quality Ferrosilicon. DMS Powders provides ferrosilicon powders for the application in dense media separation technology. Our powders are produced through a highly sophisticated production process, enhanced and optimised since 1949. We are the specialists in dense medium separation powders and world leading ferrosilicon producers.
