NaSH replacement in molybdenum flotation: FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants

The mining industry has a new, efficient solution for copper and molybdenum separation to replace NaSH: FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants

FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants are the new 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.

Main benefits of using FLOTICOR™ DP sulfide depressants to replace NaSH in Cu-Mo separation:

  Eliminates the risk of H2S exposure at all process conditions
Clariant_Icon_Complete_06-10-2020  Maintains molybdenum recovery and grade
Clariant_Icon_Liquid_Water Drop_06-10-2020  Odorless and water soluble. Can be used over a wide pH range
Clariant_Icon_36 Criteria_List_Paper_06-10-2020  Enables complete replacement of NaSH, unlike competing alternatives
Clariant_Icon_Flotation_06-10-2020  Easy to implement using existing plant equipment and flowsheets
