Paterson & Cooke - process design

Keywords: Water Chemistry

We develop flow sheets for a wide range of solid-liquid systems, from conventional tailings applications to complex hydraulic mining systems.

Thickener Circuits

Paterson & Cooke assess existing thickener installations, and provide recommendations to improve thickener performance. For new projects we are able to assess the thickener requirements for conventional and paste thickener applications. We do this through a thorough understanding of the factors that affect sedimentation, such as water chemistry and solids properties, backed up by years of practical experience from working on a wide range of thickening facilities.

Paste and Thickened Tailings

A successful paste and thickened tailings system design requires a holistic overview of the process preparation flow sheet, from ensuring a balanced flow to the thickeners to the placement of a controlled product at the deposition site.

Paterson & Cooke - slurry analysis

To transport these materials effectively and reliably means that the problems associated with laminar flow settling when the material is sheared need to be addressed, and we have developed the test procedures, equipment and analytical procedures to determine the conditions under which laminar flow settling will occur.
