Dense medium cyclones (DMCs) are known to be efficient, high-tonnage devices suitable for upgrading particles in the 50 to 05 mm size range This versatile separator, which uses centrifugal forces to enhance the separation of fine particles that cannot be upgraded in static dense medium separators .
DM Cyclone Operation The reason for the near horizontal position is that, in the vertical position, the gravitational pull on the dense medium results in a slumping of the medium toward the apex, which pinches the air core
Dense medium separation can be performed using a variety of mediums These include, organic liquids, aqueous solutions or suspensions of very fine particles in water or air The organic liquids are typically not used due to their toxicity, difficulties in handling and relative cost Industrially, the most common dense media is a suspension of .
Dense Medium Separation (also called Heavy Media Separation) is a well-established density separation process Dense Medium Separation (DMS) uses the characteristic differences in density of the input material to enact a gravimetric-based separation

HMS and DMS are acronyms for Heavy (Dense) Medium Separation and is applied to the process of pre-concentration of minerals – mainly the production of a high weight, low assay product, which may be rejected as waste In principle it is the simplest of all gravity processes and is a standard laboratory method for separating minerals of different specific gravity
The effect of medium composition on dense medium cyclone performance is investigated It is found that a change in composition affects medium stability and rheology, and may lead to different responses in separation efficiency and cutpoint shift The final result depends on whether the medium stability or rheology is the dominant factor, and also on the feed particle size
The medium density at which the separation between more dense and less dense material occurs is called the cut point density Invariably, there often is a percentage of the feed coal distribution which gets trapped in an envelope of zero velocity inside the cyclone where ,
DM Cyclone Operation The reason for the near horizontal position is that, in the vertical position, the gravitational pull on the dense medium results in a slumping of the medium toward the apex, which pinches the air core Under a ‘slumping’ condition, the separation efficiency would be very sensitive to inlet pressure and medium viscosity
The dense-medium or the magnetite suspension, in which the separation takes place, also has a significant impact on the efficiency of the cyclone The stability and rheology of dense-medium suspensions have shown to influence the performance of the process High viscosities and high yield stress values result in poor separation efficiency as .
Dynamic models for coal dense medium separation have been developed by the authors with the intention of using them for dynamic control A suitable dynamic model for a DMD separator could not been found in the available literature This paper shows how the dynamic model for a dense medium cyclone has been applied to a DMD separator The model .
Dense Medium Drum and Cyclone Plant The Parnaby Dense Medium Drum and Cyclone Plant is a washing plant which enables customers to process a range of different feed material in the coal preparation industry This is the most efficient single piece of equipment for separating minerals and waste with different specific graviti
Dense medium cyclones were introduced into Australian washeries in the 1950s Modern circuits continue to be based on the strong foundations provided by the Dutch State Mines and Stamicarbon BV, but over the ensuing decades, many innovations have been trialed Many have been rejected and others have proven useful and have been widely adopted:
Now, diameter of two-product dense medium cyclone to be applied widely in domestic plants is between 660 mm to 1 000 mm Biggest diameter of import dense medium cyclone is 1 500 mm, its capacity is about 800 t/h Three-product dense medium cyclone gets widely development in China
From the early 1960’s until the mid 1980’s, dense medium cyclone circuitry design technology did not change appreciably The basic design, which was both highly flexible and highly efficient, was consistent with technology developed by the Dutch State Mines (“DSM”) in the mid 1940’s During this period, the “typical” dense medium cyclone circuit was designed to process raw coal .
The use of dense medium separation (DMS) technology to recover diamond indicator minerals from prospecting samples has been largely the domain of diamond-miner De Beers However, projects house .
The primary advantages of using a dense medium cyclone arise when only a single stage separation is required, it allows for a simpler circuit and reduced cost (ie a dense medium cyclone is generally less expensive than the multi-stage DMS separator)
Dense medium cyclone is a kind of device which utilizes centrifugal force to separate materials according to specific gravity in the medium The raw material to be treated is suspended in a very fine medium The pulp is fed to three product dense medium cyclone through the inlet to short cylindrical section by the force of gravity
Centrifugal separators in the form of the cyclone DM separator are widely used in the treatment of ores and coal DM cyclones proved a high centrifugal force and a low viscosity in the medium enabling much finer separations to be achieved than in gravitational separators (Wills, 1997)
A method of cleaning particulate coal which is fed with a dense medium slurry as an inlet feed to a cyclone separator The coal particle size distribution is in the range of from about 37 microns to about 600 microns The dense medium comprises water and ferromagnetic particles that have a relative density in the range of from about 40 to .
