Segregation of particles during flow-splitting of slurry

Burger A.J. ; Van Deventer J.S.J. ; Cloete F.L.D. (1988)


The segregation of particles during flow-splitting is a common occurrence in mineral processing operations. Many flow dividers generate force fields from changes in velocity and act as inefficient classifiers. Data were obtained on the performance of various T- and Y- pieces dividing a slurry of ore containing pyrite. It was shown that segregation could be avoided by using a Y-piece with equal velocities in the two branches. © 1988.
