Specialty Chemicals and Services for the Mineral Processing Industry
If you require xanthates, dithiophosphates, thionocarbamates, xanthogen formates, xanthic esters, aliphatic alcohols, glycols, glycol ethers, depressants (Nokes, NaSH, organic and inorganic), anti-scalants and flocculants for the mining, alumina and water treatment sectors, then look no further.
SNF FloMin, Inc., a subsidiary of the SNF group of companies, is a manufacturer and market reagent for the minerals processing industry. Our head office is based in the USA but with production sites in the USA, China and Europe and associated sales offices located in USA, Chile, Europe, South Africa, Peru, Australia, Canada, and China, we are well positioned to service your FloMin™ reagent needs.
COLLECTORS AND PROMOTERS
SNF FloMin C products are widely used for the flotation of copper, lead, zinc, gold, nickel, platinum group elements and others. Although our base products consist of the traditional known chemistries, we also have active programs in place for developing site specific blends and new products across the froth flotation spectrum.
- Xanthates – all types
- Dithiophosphates – all types
- Xanthogen formates
- Xanthic esters
Based on individual site needs, and through our FloMin F range of frothers, we can offer alcohol, glycols, glycol ethers and blends of proprietary chemicals well-suited to enhancing frother performance. Mineral sectors served are base metal sulphides, precious metals (gold, silver, PGEs), industrial minerals, coal and various other non-sulphides.
DEPRESSANTS AND ACTIVATORS
The FloMin™ D products specifically cover organic and inorganic chemistries with Nokes reagent, widely used as a copper depressant in Moly flotation circuits a major product line. As an activator we can offer sodium hydrosulphide (NaSH) in either a solid or liquid form as per mine site requirements.
Large quantities of water are used in the mining industry in order to separate valuable ore from its gangue and, at some stage in the process, it is necessary to separate the solids from the liquid phase.
The FloMin flocculants are used for density control in thickeners, as a rheology modifier in the concentrate thickeners, to increase solids for shipment, in the slimes dams for dewatering and overall for water reclamation.
The use of FloMin filter aids and flocculants in these operations has the possibility to enhance performance whilst reducing costs. These products can be used under the most extreme temperatures and pH conditions
