Dense Medium Cyclone

From the early 1960 s until the mid 1980 s dense medium cyclone circuitry design technology did not change appreciably The basic design which was both highly flexible and highly efficient was consistent with technology developed by the Dutch State Mines DSM in the mid 1940 s During this period the typical dense medium cyclone circuit was designed to process raw coal

Mineral processing Wikipedia

Industrially the most common dense media is a suspension of fine magnetite and or ferrosilicon particles An aqueous solution as a dense medium is used in coal processing in the form of a belknap wash and suspensions in air are used in water deficient areas like areas of China where sand is used to separate coal from the gangue minerals
