High efficiency hydrocyclones are a necessity in the mining and mineral processing industry.  Weir Minerals has enhanced the high efficiency hydrocyclone design with their new classification technology, known as Cavex 2.  This design improves the control of classification of particles by decreasing the finer particles discharged through the underflow.  By improving the control of your particle classification, you improve the bottom line and minimize loss at your plant.  In this paper, Weir Minerals will discuss the benefits of the new design, the economic impact on grinding circuits and customer success stories.
