Automatic Operation of Desliming Hydroseparators at the Moose Mountain Mine, Lowphos Ore Ltd., Capreol, Ontario

For the past year, Lowphos Ore Ltd. has been operating two desliming hydroseparators on a fully automatic basis. Automatic operation is achieved by sensing the position of the silicamagnetite interface and automatically controlling the jet water addition to maintain a desired interface position. The system further provides automatic control of the underflow pump speed in order to assist in maintaining interface position when an ore change occurs.
