Our extensive bench scale laboratory, small and large scale pilot plant facilities, and expert metallurgists, mineralogists, chemists, and technologists, provide mineral processing, hydrometallurgical, mineralogical and in-plant services to the global resources community.
The mining, engineering and financial sectors internationally recognise our bankable metallurgical solutions.
Slurry characterisation test programs are routinely carried out and include:
- Particle Size
- Pulp Density Determination
- Solids Content
- Liquid Content
- Oxygen Uptake Rate Determination
- Chemical or Reagent Content
- Slurry Flocculation and Settling
- Transportable Moisture Limit (TML)
Our experienced team will work with you and your consultants to develop a practical scope of work to suit your objectives. Data generated is often utilised to size-up specific equipment such as pumps, slurry thickeners, and filters, and to achieve environmental regulatory compliance requirements.
Evaluation of the nature of mineral processing slurries, particularly pulp viscosity, can be of supreme importance regarding the processing efficiency of any mineral processing and extraction plant. ALS tailors programs of testwork to identify any slurry handling issues which are then systematically sorted out using identified techniques in combination with specific reagents and equipment.
ALS remains at the forefront of innovation in commercial metallurgical testing for the global minerals industry.
