Centrifuge

Low-G Horizontal Centrifuge Primary Concentrator

If you can't see it with the naked eye, the Low-G Centrifuge will recover it. A skilled panner can recover free gold down to 100 mesh, and our Low-G Centrifuge has equal ability for free gold recovery. However, in a production environment, recovery rates using gravity separation methods for gold particles down to 200–300 mesh begin to...

Theory of Operation

The Centrifuge is a low G-Force batch-type concentrator designed to operate with clean or turbid water, which makes it ideal for recycle and recirculation applications. It is a continuous feed (water and ore) concentrator and "batches" the concentrate during the run process. In operation at a specific G-Force, the internal chambers fill with lighter material, which will form soft fluidized "beds." Gold and heavy minerals...

Versatility

The Low-G Horizontal Centrifuge is an excellent batch concentrator for primary recovery at volumes of 15-40 tons/hour. It is very economical for high volumes of typical alluvial or milled hard-rock ores and is adaptable to any existing classifying circuit. Multiple units can be connected in simultaneous feed for higher volume throughput.

These concentrators perform well with turbid water, which makes them great for recycle loop applications (ponds). For peak production capacity, we recommend classifying the head ore to ¼" minus.
