Manufacturer of Ferrosilicon for Dense Media Separation

Dense Media Separation is a gravity separation process that  is used for the extraction of diamonds, and other minerals where there is a distinct difference in density in comparison to the unwanted waste material. In the process of Dense Media Separation in diamonds, a powdered ferrosilicon (which is an alloy of iron) is mixed with water to form a defined pulp density (heavy liquid), close to the density of diamond (3.52 g/cm3). The diamond bearing material is then added to the mixture in a cyclone, which will start the separation process of the heavier minerals from the lighter material. Heavier minerals will then sink in the slurry, whilst the lighter materials will rise to the surface. Dense media separation is widely used in the diamond mining and processing industry due to its effective results and easy execution.
