Mineral extraction and processing operations can demand the use of large volumes of water; a commodity that is valuable and in some cases rare.

To maximise the process efficiencies and to minimise water consumption the optimisation of water use and re-use is important.

On site clarification, sedimentation, dewatering and filtration processes can be aided through the efficient use of Flopam® flocculants, coagulants and antifoaming agents. SNF’s technical experts can advise on the optimal product selection through their knowledge and understanding of mineral processing technology.
