Understanding the Thickening Process
The thickening process is the primary method of producing high solids slurries for the minerals industry. Thickener outputs can accommodate a range of tailings disposal options from low yield...

Rake thickener can be divided into central driving thickener and peripheral transmission thickener according to the transmission mode, and it is one of the common thickening equipment used in the thickening and dehydration operation of mineral processing plant.
Thickening Thickening Definition Continuous thickening by an operation called sedimentation is the separation of suspended solid particles from a liquid stream by gravity settling. The primary purpose of thickening is to increase the solids concentration of the feed stream.
thickening operation in mineral processing thickening operation in mineral processing. The primary operations are comminution and concentration, but there are other important operations in a modern mineral processing plant, including sampling and analysis and dewatering.
