Settling pond elimination a benefit of ultra-fines recovery system

By |  October 2, 2012

Deister Machine Co. introduced an ultra-fines recovery (UFR) system at last week’s MINExpo. The system is designed to recover ultra-fine sands and silts in quarry applications, as well as to recover tailings in various mining applications. Deister says the system allows operations to eliminate or greatly reduce the use of settling ponds.

The Deister system enables producers to create a dry tailing or silt product, which can be stockpiled prior to removal, or used as a saleable product. The system is capable of recoveries ranging between 350 and 400 mesh. It uses a radial distribution manifold for even distribution of solids to all cyclones. The reverse-slope vibrating screen is available in sizes up to 7 ft. wide and 12 ft. long, with solids capacities up to 70 tph.
