Xinhai Cu-Pb-Zn Ore Dressing Process

Xinhai Cu-Pb-Zn Ore Dressing Process

It is reported that more than 90% of non-ferrous metal ores (copper, lead, zinc, etc.) adopt flotation process, especially for those with fine grain and complex symbiosis. Flotation process can achieve ideal separation effect, and separately recover low-grade ore then enrich multiple high-grade concentrates. Different ore properties means different flotation process. According to the dissemination characteristics of metal minerals, Xinhai has determined four kinds of flotation processes:

Xinhai Cu-Pb-Zn Ore flotation processes

Preferential Floatation Process

Preferential Floatation Process

Process

According to the different flotability and floating speed among copper, lead, zinc ore, Xinhai separately obtains copper concentrate, lead concentrate and zinc concentrate from the slurry.

Application

Simple mineral composition, large differences in flotability among useful minerals, coarse disseminated grain size, high-graded raw ore.

Advantages

Adapt to the change of ore grade with high flexibility; save flotation reagent.

Bulk Preferential Flotation Process

Process

Xinhai floats copper, lead and zinc minerals together in the mixed concentrate, and dereagents the mixed concentrate then separates, so that the copper, lead and zinc concentrate can be obtained.

Application

Useful minerals are unevenly embedded or associated with each other, or one useful mineral is finely embedded in another mineral, and its coarse coenobium is embedded in gangues.

Advantages

Good flotation effect; Improve the processing capacity per unit time; Avoid the overgrinding of dissociated useful minerals, which can reduce difficulty of later separation; Save production cost.

Partial Mixture-Differential Flotation Process

Partial Mixture-Differential Flotation Process

Process

Xinhai separates two useful minerals that with similar floatability into the mixed concentrate, and then floats each concentrate. That is, copper sulphide and lead ore with similar floatability are selected as mixed concentrate, and copper and lead is separated. Then the tailings were reactivated to separate the zinc concentrate.

Application

Copper-zinc polymetallic sulfide ore of similar floatability

Advantages

Process technology matures; easy to control the flotation conditions, combine the strengths of both differential flotation and bulk flotation, widely used in many plants.

Iso-flotability Flotation Process

Process

With the principle of " easiness to hardness ", Xinhai divides the recovered minerals into two parts: easy-to-float and difficult-to-float according to the difference of natural floatability, and then separate the copper, lead and zinc concentrate from the mixed concentrate.

Application

One of mineral has good floatability, while other minerals can be divided into easy-to-float and difficult-to-float.

Advantages

Reduce the reagent consumption, avoid the negative effect of excess reagent on flotation result, then improve the flotation indicator.

Key Point: Lead-Zinc Separation, Copper-Zinc Separation, Copper-Lead Separation

In general, the most difficulty of the polymetallic sulfide ores separation is the separation among several kinds of ores, especially those low-graded ores with complex embedded features. Therefore, it’s a significant step for separating lead-zinc, copper-zinc, copper-lead to choose right flotation reagents. Xinhai strictly implements the reagent system, controls the dosage of reagent, reduces multiple circulation and loss, then strengthens the flotation effect.

Lead-Zinc Ore Separation

Lead-Zinc Ore Separation

Differential flotation process, floats lead and depresses zinc.

Collectors: Low-level xanthate, advanced xanthate, aerofloat. Separation in alkaline medium.

Inhibitor: CN-、NaCN、kCN、ZnSO4、Na2OS3、Na2S2O3

Copper-Zinc Separation

Copper-Zinc Separation

Differential flotation process, floats copper and depresses zinc. If the separating difficulty is over 2, the depression on zinc should be strengthened.

Collectors: Low-level xanthate, advanced xanthate, aerofloat. Separation in alkaline medium.

Inhibitor: CN-、NaCN、kCN、ZnSO4、Na2OS3、Na2S2O3

Copper-Lead Separation

Copper-Lead Separation

Dereagent first, then differential flotation process. Floats copper and depresses lead, or floats lead and depresses copper.

Floats copper and depresses lead: Widely used in secondary copper ore, Cu2+ ions are dissolved too much and bot easy to be inhibited.

Inhibitor: Knox reagent(K2CrO4+KCrO2) combined with Na2S, or oxysulfide.

Floats lead and depresses copper: Widely used in primary copper ore.

Collectors: xanthate, aerofloat. Keep PH value among 9-605, then adjust with CaO.

Inhibitor: cyanide and other inhibitors, or hot dereagent to inhibit lead (40~70℃, and PH value≤7).
