Mineral Separation. Titanium dioxide (mined as ilmenite or rutile) is a dark coloured mineral which, with processing, becomes white and opaque. It is primarily used as a whitening pigment in paints, plastics and paper. Titanium dioxide is also used in the manufacture of titanium metal and welding flux wire cord.
ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATION Almost all minerals show some degree of conductivity. An electrostatic separation process uses the differ ence in the electrical conductivity or surface charge of the mineral species of interest. The electrostatic separation process has generally been confined to recovering valuable heavy minerals from beach sand deposits.

Electrostatic Separation of Dry Granular Plant Based Food Materials. Electrostatic beneficiation of dry granular plant based food (i.e, organic) materials have been investigated for over 140 years, with the first patent for electrostatic separation of wheat flour middlings filled as early as 1880.
Under the influence of an electrostatic charge there is a difference in the susceptibility and behavior of most materials, minerals, salts, and food products. This can be controlled to a great extent by potential, polarity, temperature, and conditioning of the surface of the
Electrostatic separators utilise the conductive properties of particles to separate materials. The minerals engineering laboratory at CSM is equipped with a Carpco high tension electrostatic separator which allows for the separation of conductive materials such as
Electrostatic Separation. Screening, Classifying Dewatering. Metallurgical Accounting. Contact TTMS. Electrostatic Separation. Electrostatic separators can be split into high tension and electrostatic types and listed as follows High tension rolls (HTR) Ultra stat and Carrara rolls.
In the process of electrostatic separation, charging particles move in different trajectory based on based on their surface charging properties differences. And this is a physical method to realize mineral particles separation. The device structure of electrostatic separator is simple, it is easy maintenance and the production cost is lower.
1 Electrostatic separation is important in the production of minerals, also in the reclamation of other valuable materials, as well as the cleaning of some food products. When every effort is being made by Process Engineers to make use of all concentrating equipment available for the recovery of critical minerals and reclaimed materials,
Three important factors have  major impacts on the final result of a separation process conducted with a drum type electrostatic separator. First, the parameters of the separator itself, such as the roll speed and the filament and electrode positions  play a role in the separation results.
STET demonstrated evidence of effective charging and separation of zircon and rutile mineral particles. It was seen that doping the feed ore with small quantities of aromatic or aliphatic carboxylic acids (electrostatic charge conditioning agents) showed significant improvement in the separation behavior. Electrostatic Separation of Dry
Eddycurrent electrostatic separators; Magnetic separation is a well established separation technique and has become increasingly popular as new equipment on the market enhances the range of separations possible. It is an attractive process choice because of low capital and operating costs and the lack of chemicals to cause environmental
Electrostatic separation of materials is part of the non conventional technologies used in the recycling industry; the current development is strongly stimulated by the regulations in the field of environmental protection. According to the climatic conditions of the region Ouenza (Algeria), a study was conducted by testing on samples, the possibility of treatment of these discharges
Electrostatic Separation Procedure. Separation of minerals utilizing differences in their electrical properties may be carried out using an electrostatic separator. It will separate electrical conductors (minerals such as cassiterite and rutile) from those that are electrical non conductors (minerals such as zircon and siderite).
Electrostatic and high tension separators utilise the different electrical conductivity of minerals to separate and concentrate the desired commodity. Electrostatic separation is highly successful in certain operations, particularly in rutile recovery, however its suitability is limited due to the strict conditions of ore feed presentation
Dedicated in April 2005, the Max Bowen Mineral Processing Laboratory is used by mining and metallurgical engineering graduate students to carry out research projects. Undergraduate students also gain hands on laboratory experience performing mineral liberation processes learned in Introduction to Mineral Processing (MNGN 322), including

4.2.3 Separating Minerals by Electrostatic Beneficiation. Minerals come in grains. For example, a scoop of lunar dirt will typically contain a number of minerals, but the different minerals will come in the form of different grains, each grain being a glob of mostly one particular mineral.
This is the principle which is utilized in electrostatic separation, and to accomplish separation, the differential property is the conductivity of the minerals involved. Thus, if the circuit of an ordinary 110 volt incandescent lamp is broken, and a piece of pyrite inserted in the break, the current will again flow.

ALS metallurgists combine electrostatic separation with other separation techniques, such as gravity and magnetic separation, for the recovery of non sulphide minerals. For example, electrostatic separation is used with magnetic separation to separate high SG minerals into various concentrated products, after first using gravity separation to
This electrostatic separation device has also been successful at beneficiating other inorganic materials, including minerals such as calcium carbonate, talc, barite and others. The STET separator has also been successfully applied to processing gricultural materials such as oilseed meals and pulses, and animal meals and rendering products.
In terms of mineral separation plants, the engine room is the electrostatics. The technology for separation is primarily electrostatic separation separation based on the conductivity differential between the minerals. Circuit configurations can be quite variable and depend upon the heavily mineral assemblage of the feedstock.
