Dense Medium Cyclone Handbook ACARP

Dense medium cyclones were introduced into Australian washeries in the 1950s. Modern circuits continue to be based on the strong foundations provided by the Dutch State Mines and Stamicarbon BV, but over the ensuing decades, many innovations have been trialed. Many have been rejected and others have proven useful and have been widely adopted:

The dense medium cyclone past, present and future

The dense medium cyclone is a mature and efficient process. The behaviour of the medium is process-determining. Semi-empirical models exist which can be used for process design and optimisation. Economics will be greatly improved with larger cyclones and lower heads, as in coal preparation. The DMC can compete effectively as a process of choice

Density distribution in a heavy-medium cyclone

2011-3-1  Abstract. Heavy-medium cyclones are widely used to upgrade run-of-mine coal. But the understanding of flow in a cyclone containing a dense medium is still incomplete. By introducing turbulent diffusion into calculations of centrifugal settling a theoretical distribution function giving the density field can be deduced.

A methodology for modelling dense medium cyclones

A methodology for modelling dense medium cyclones is presented for cyclones operating under conditions which avoid particle interference or apex crowding. Particle interference and apex crowding are shown to result in less efficient separations and represent undesirable regimes of dense medium cyclone operation. In order to avoid apex crowding, suitable medium to ore ratios and apex diameters

Solid Density Correction. The rate that a charged particle moves in a fluid under centrifugal forge is a function of particle density. Higher density particles move at a faster rate toward the cyclone wall. As such, the d 50(c) for high density particles is lower. The correction factor for solid density is:
