DMS Powders manufactures Ferrosilicon alloys specifically for use in Dense Medium Separation to separate diamonds from diamond bearing material. The production of Ferrosilicon for use in Dense Medium Separation processes requires sophisticated production and quality assurance techniques, essential to ensure tight control of chemical composition as well as physical properties. The benefits of using Ferrosilicon from DMS Powders manufactured through this sophisticated process include:
In the process of Dense Medium Separation, Ferrosilicon powder is mixed with water in a tank, to form a medium of a very specific density. Once the required density is reached, the diamond bearing material is added to the mixture. Particles with lower densities will rise to the top, while particles with higher density will sink to the bottom, or be pushed out the sides. This is also referred to as a sink-float or gravity separation method. Three important properties of the suspension or ‘medium’ are density, viscosity and stability, which are inter-related:
