“An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field”

Niels Bohr

Most mining, refining and processing plants incorporate a number of filtration and separation stages which define process efficiency and economics:

  • Clarification or polishing of pregnant liquor by pressure filters, eg in leach circuit
  • Dewatering of flotation or precipitation products by vacuum or pressure filters
  • Residue removal or tailings dewatering
