CrossFlow Separator

High Capacity Classifier


A system for sizing and/or concentrating minerals in slurry form having various particle size and density distributions. riez CrossFlow Separator is a highly efficient hydraulic classifier for the separation of finely sized material based on particle size and/or density. The hinderedbed concentration method used in the CrossFlow Separator provides an economical and efficient means of sizing material such as sand and phosphate. Additionally, ores containing a mixture of high and low density components can be readily upgraded based on the difference in specific gravity. Examples include iron ore and heavy mineral sands with silica contamination and runofmine coal containing various ashforming components such as rock and pyrite.

PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
The Eriez CrossFlow Separator uses a unique tangential feed system to introduce a mineral slurry that contains particles of various size and density into the top of the separation chamber. This novel approach provides capacities up to three times that of a conventional hydraulic classifier and eliminates errors associated with the introduction of excess feed water. Feed particles descend against a rising flow of teeter water established by a uniform system of water injection pipes located in the base of the main separation housing. Based on the water addition rate, a fluidized bed of solids is established in the separator. Particles with a low settling velocity are carried over the top of the separator with the fluidizing water. Likewise, particles that have a density lower than the teetering bed of solids cannot penetrate the bed and will also report to the overflow. High settling rate particles pass through the teeter bed into the dewatering cone and are eventually discharged through the underflow valve. Particle size and/or density cutpoint is controlled by adjustment of the water flow rate and the level of the teeter bed. The teeter water addition and level control systems are fully instrumented. The underflow discharge rate is regulated using an automated electronic control system consisting of a pressure gauge, PID loop controller and pneumatically actuated control valve.

The Eriez CrossFlow Separator consists of a tangential feed system, main housing (separation zone and dewatering cone), product collection launder, water injection system and process control system.
