SAFER, SUSTAINABLE SULFIDE ORE REAGENTS:
XANTHATE REPLACEMENT TECHNOLOGY

Clariant’s customers were concerned with the safe handling and performance of xanthates in their operations. Through collaboration, we developed sustainable alternatives with high copper flotation performance and safer handling and disposal, lowering capital expenditure and providing a longer shelf life than solid xanthates.

SAFER TECHNOLOGY FOR NASH REPLACEMENT IN MOLYBDENUM FLOTATION

FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants are a safer solution to replace NaSH in copper and molybdenum separation. This new technology is proven in commercial production of molybdenum concentrate, and it will allow you to eliminate the risk of H2S exposure while maintaining your molybdenum recovery and grade. FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants are also generally effective at a lower dosage than NaSH.

Copper

HOSTAFLOT™ collectors are formulated to achieve the best possible recovery and grade in your copper flotation operations, whether processing primary, secondary or oxide copper mineralization. Our FLOTANOL™ frothers are customized to help you achieve the right froth to maximize recovery of coarse or fine materials, and our FLOTICOR™ additives can handle difficult ores with high viscosity pulps or undesirable contaminants.

FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants are efficient NaSH replacements to depress copper in the flotation of molybdenum in copper-moly concentrates.

Molybdenum

HOSTAFLOT™ collectors are formulated to achieve the best possible recovery and rougher grade in your bulk copper-moly concentrate. Products with low oils and low aromatics content are available for more stringent health, occupational and environmental requirements.

FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants are safer NaSH replacement products for Cu-Mo separation that eliminate the risk of H2S exposure at all process conditions, maintain the molybdenum recovery and grade, and can generally be used at a lower dosage than NaSH.

Platinum Group Metals

Clariant Mining Solutions HOSTAFLOT™ collectors are formulated to achieve the best possible grade and recovery for your unique mining needs. Our collectors are more selective against chromite and talc and deliver an increase in PGM recovery and a concentrate with a lower chrome and talc content.

Polymetallic Ores

HOSTAFLOT™ collectors are formulated to achieve the best possible recovery and selectivity when needed. Our solutions encompass the flotation of ores containing lead, zinc, copper, nickel, cobalt. Our FLOTANOL™ frothers are customized to help you achieve the right froth to maximize the recovery of coarse or fine materials.

Gold and Silver

HOSTAFLOT™ collectors are formulated to achieve the best possible recovery and meet concentrate specifications. Our solutions can help you optimize your silver and gold associated with sulfides flotation. Our FLOTANOL™ frothers improve bubble mechanical strength, increasing recovery of coarse particles and allowing for good drainage of gangue minerals.

Xanthate Replacement

Clariant Mining Solutions HOSTAFLOT™ collectors include a range of xanthate replacement solutions. We provide ready to use liquid collectors that are non-flammable and do not form hazardous decomposition products like xanthates. Our alternatives have proven performance in the flotation of copper ores, polymetalic ores and gold associated to sulfides.
