Beneficiation of Elazığ-Kefdağ Chromite by Multi Gravity Separator


Abstract: In this study, the possibility of beneficiation of chromite in the Elazığ-Kefdağ region by Multi-Gravity Separator was investigated. The results of beneficiation studies showed that commercial concentrate containing 52.14\% Cr_2O_3 was obtainable with a 69.57\% rate of recovery. The optimum operation parameters determined for the concentration of chromite ores are as follows; a washwater flowrate of 3 l/min, shake amplitude of 15mm, shake frequency of 4.8 cps, tilt angle of 4° and drum speed of 220 rpm.

Keywords: Multi-Gravity Separator, chromite
