This paper aims at contributing to the possibility of electrically separating K-feldspar/Na-feldspar and quartz/feldspar, investigating the behaviour of mixtures composed of K-feldspar, Na-feldspar and quartz concentrates.

Abstract

This paper aims at contributing to the possibility of electrically separating K-feldspar/Na-feldspar and quartz/feldspar, investigating the behaviour of mixtures composed of K-feldspar, Na-feldspar and quartz concentrates. The findings highlight the importance of preheating the material and of interparticle contact. Tests conducted on binary mixtures of K-feldspar/Na-feldspar, K-feldspar/quartz and Na-feldspar/quartz showed that it is possible to achieve satisfactory results in the separation of these species, by triboelectrical charging of the material, preheated to temperatures above 100 °C, using a free fall chamber. Tests carried out on ternary mixtures have demonstrated that additional pretreatment with HF solutions improves the results.
