In Reverse Iron Ore Flotation, Clariant has been developing a comprehensive range of collectors for iron ore flotation to remove undesirable silicate minerals impurities. The FLOTIGAM® series includes ether amines, used for hematite iron ore, and ether diamines, used for magnetite iron ore. The FLOTIGAM series collectors are able to produce iron ore with low silica content by froth flotation resulting in high purity concentrate, which is needed for steel production. Clariant’s iron ore technical experts and flotation specialists can work with your technical teams to develop solutions for new processes and provide improved solutions for your existing mining operations.
Clariant Mining Solutions has developed specific binders for the iron ore pelletizing industry that enhance the agglomeration process of fine iron ore. Our FLOTICOR® PA series produces more cohesive pellets that are less fragmented or cracked.
The FLOTICOR® PA series produces the desired benefits, enabling a reduction of 50% of bentonite while maintaining the pellets physical properties. FLOTICOR® PA enhances the agglomeration process while adding value to the iron ore market by increasing iron content after burning and maintaining standard pellet compressive strength and abrasion quality.
Clariant's product line FLOTICOR® FA is specifically designed to allow drainage of capillary and inherent moisture areas beyond the reach of mechanical systems. These products can also help minimize filter media blinding and allow the cake to separate away more easily. By increasing filter efficiency, reducing product moisture levels and increasing filtrate quality, Clariant filter aids provide better operational cost-benefit performance.
