Mineral Processing Design and Operations 2nd Edition


Mineral Processing Design and Operations: An Introduction, Second Edition, helps readers understand the various methods commonly used in mineral beneficiation and concentration processes. Application of theory to practice is explained at each stage, helping operators understand associated implications in each unit process.

The expanded second edition describes theories and practices of design and operation of apparatus and equipment, and covers the theory and formulae for unit capacities and power requirements to help the designer develop the necessary equipment and flow-sheets to economically attain maximum yield and grade.

This expanded edition outlines the basics of process controls for efficient and economic modes of separation and includes theory and practice in the design of flow sheets and operation of an integrated mineral processing plant. It introduces the basic magnetism, electrostatic, conductivity, and dielectrophoresis properties of minerals and related separation techniques. The text describes automation in mineral processing plants allowing maximum yields and consistent high concentrate grades. And finally, it outlines problems and offers solutions in the form of various examples.
