Why ore beneficiation plant shall build a mineral processing laboratory?

The ore characteristics is always changed as the mining stage different, so the present meniral beneficiation method or process do not recover the aimed mineral well. At this time, the mineral beneficiation plant shall observe the structure of the ore and analyze the nature of the ore, the do mineral beneficiation test, for the aim to find the better mineral process, the new flotation reagent, etc.

The laboratory equipment and machines

The equipment of  small scale of the  laboratory generally shall equipped with crushing and screening machines such as jaw crushers, double roll crusher, etc; the laboratory ball mills, flotation cells for unit working process; filters and dewaterring machines, etc.

The middle and big scale of mineral processing laboratory shall equipped with small scale of continuous ore processing equipment. The continuous flotation mineral beneficiation equipment shall include ore grinding, classification, agitation, flotation, thickening, filtration, etc. The continuous gravity mineral beneficiation equipment shall include rod mills, ball mills, screens, jigs, shaking tables, etc. The continuous magnetic mineral beneficiation equipment include magnetic separator, davis tube, etc.

The scale of mineral processing laboratory

the mineral processing laboratory is changed according to the scale of mineral beneficiation palnt, the ore dressing method and ore type. For the mineral beneficiation palnt process  simple ore with one single metal, it shall build a small scale of mineral processing laboratory in the factory of mineral beneficiation palnt, for the aim to check the grinding size of the grinding mills and testing the PH level of the ore pulp.   For mineral beneficiation palnt process  ore  with complex  properties of or polymetallic ore, the mineral processing laboratory shall a little bigger scale. For the froth flotation beneficiation plant, it shall do the small scale of continuous flotation mineral beneficiation test. It shall consider to build a pilot continuous flotation plant in semi industrial scale.
