Özet

In the present investigation, the effect of the most important process variables, which are teeter water velocity (TW) and pressure set point (SP), on the classification and beneficiation performance of a laboratory-scale teetered bed separator (TBS) was evaluated and discussed. Pure silica sand, magnetite concentrate and their artificial mixture were used to observe the effect of mineral density. Classification test results revealed that separation cut size linearly increases with increasing TW and SP. From the beneficiation studies and the size-by-size chemical analysis of artificial mixture, it can be concluded that significant removal of silica is possible by employing TBS.
