Advanced Separation Technologies for Ores and Minerals
Minerals and ores deposits are declining. As a result lower quality materials have to be processed. In order to do so fine grinding and dry processing of the feed is becoming ever more important. An additional factor are rising demands for several raw materials. In order to close this gap between available resources and demand processing machinery has to become ever more effective. The presentation focuses on improvements in screening technology and their possible applications.
