Optical Separation Process

Optical Separation Process

Metalcértima has participated in the development of a novel process of separating minerals which allow as a result in project with considerable competitive advantage in a process which was previously done by hand.

 The process of optical selection can separate different types of minerals that are mixed in nature. The geometry, color and transparency are some of the properties of materials which allow separation. The result is a product with a high degree of purification. The final particle size adjustment is done through a mill and rotating sieve.

The process is very economical in every way: the power consumption is low, productivity is high, the environmental impact is minimal and also allows the use of products previously considered waste.
