The Effect of Continuous Addition of Mineral Grains to a Settling Environment

W. D. Lacabanne, G. A. Thiel


A method was designed to observe the settling behavior of mineral grains under conditions of continuous addition of grains to a fluid medium. This was accomplished in a modified elutriator in which the grains were held in "teeter" by ascending currents of water, even though a flow of additional grains constantly entered the suspension. The relations between size, shape and density of grains, and the relation of particle density to pulp-density were determined.
