Separation of water / mineral particles. Concentration in the clarifier and pumping of concentrated sludge to the press filter. This same type of installation can concentrate other minerals. Very short cycles due to the principle of a clarifier allowing the concentration of particles of very dense minerals and a pressure / vacuum pump with chamber-by-chamber feeding. In general, the cycle does not exceed 15 minutes. The cakes have a water content of 15 to 20%. The clarifier's overflow water is totally clear.
