We provide tailor-made flotation collectors that successfully float magmatic phosphate from gangue minerals such as silicates and carbonates.

Solutions for Direct and Reverse Flotation

Phosphate ore is the most important source of phosphorus in fertilizers. To supply the phosphoric acid plant with phosphate, a high grade of phosphorus is essential, as well as reduced levels of impurities such as magnesium, iron and aluminum oxides.

Flotation is one of the key beneficiation methods. As ores become more complex, the need for tailormade solutions increases. With over 30 years of experience in phosphate flotation, we have developed boosters as well as customized collectors where the traditional fatty acids are not working optimally for direct flotation.

We have also developed direct flotation collectors that successfully float magmatic phosphate from gangue minerals such as silicates and carbonates. In cases where direct flotation is not feasible, we provide carbonate and silica collectors for reverse flotation. In our laboratory, in close collaboration with you, we can fine-tune our products to the particular requirements of your ore.
