Cytec Industries has announced that it will present the paper Crud Processing Improvements using ACORGA CB™ 1000 Crud Busting Reagent at ALTA in Perth, Australia. Violina Cocalia, R&D Manager for Cytec MEP and Mineral Processing, will deliver the presentation on Tuesday, May 28th 2013.

As Crud is a common concern in solvent extraction processes, Cytec developed a unique crud treatment process utilizing both chemical and mechanical means to enhance the solid/liquid separation. ACORGA CB™ 1000 improves overall processing time. In addition, the organic quality of the recovered organic is higher than that recovered by typical mechanical processing means, which can lead to improved separation times, entrainments, and total suspended solids.
