Dense Medium Separation - An Effective and Robust Pre ...

Dense medium separation (DMS) is a robust process that can be conducted at particle sizes as coarse as 300 mm and as fine as 500 µm with high separation efficiency, depending on liberation characteristics of the value minerals. The DMS process involves three steps: feed preparation, dense medium separation, and ferrous-based media recovery.

Dense-Heavy Medium Separation HMS / DMS Process

Jun 23, 2015  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 stability of ferrosilicon dense medium suspensions

Dense medium separation is the process in which a heavy liquid of an intermediate density is used to separate minerals of different specific gravity. The heavy liquid is typically a suspension of dense powder such as ferrosilicon or magnetite in water. Ferrosilicon is used for high-density applications (medium density: 3200–4200 kg/m3).
