Mineral Processing

Max Bowen Mineral Processing Laboratory

Dedicated in April, 2005 the Max Bowen Mineral Processing Laboratory provides the use of the facility for Mining and Metallurgical Engineering graduate students to carry out research projects.  Undergraduate students also gain hands-on laboratory experience performing mineral liberation processes learned in Introduction to Mineral Processing (MNGN 322) which include:

  •  Crushing
  •  Grinding
  •  Size Classification
  •  Mineral Concentration
  •  Magnetic and Electrostatic Separation
  •  Gravity Separation
  •  Flotation
  •  Sedimentation
  •  Thickening
  •  Filtration
  •  Product Drying
  •  Tailings Disposal

A variety of mineral processing equipment is used in the laboratory including:

  •  Variety of Jaw and Roll Crushers
  •  Bond Ball Mill
  •  Denver Laboratory Rod Mill
  •  Ro-Tap Sieve Shakers
  •  Variety of Grinders and Pulverizers
  •  Magnetic and Electrostatic Separators
  •  Wilfley Gravity Separation Table
  •  Knelson Enhanced Gravity Concentrator
  •  Denver D-1 and D-12 Flotation Machines
  •  Warman Cyclosizer
  •  Sample Splitters
  •  Pressure Filters
  •  Particle Size Analyzer
