Automatic Operation of Desliming Hydroseparators at the Moose Mountain Mine, Lowphos Ore Ltd., Capreol, Ontario

CIM Bulletin, 1963


For the past year, Lowphos Ore Ltd. has been operating two desliming hydroseparators on a fully automatic basis. Automatic operation is achieved by sensing the position of the silicamagnetite interface and automatically controlling the jet water addition to maintain a desired interface position. The system further provides automatic control of the underflow pump speed in order to assist in maintaining interface position when an ore change occurs.
