FLOTIGAM® 5806 is a sustainable collector for the direct flotation of apatite and other industrial minerals, such as fluorspar, spodumene and calcite.
FLOTIGAM® 5806 was initially developed for the flotation of low-grade igneous phosphate ores. FLOTIGAM® 5806 can deliver high concentrate grades (above 35% P2O5) with low contents of silicate and carbonate impurities. Additionally, in commercial operations, FLOTIGAM® 5806 required 10% lower dosages than alternative collectors previously used at the same mine. FLOTIGAM® 5806 has also proven effective to beneficiate spodumene ores to achieve the Li2O battery grade of 6%.
- Delivers high phosphate or spodumene recovery
- Provides high concentrate grade
- Low impurity grade
- Lower reagent usage when compared to alternative collectors
