Separation technology from Flottweg: the right solution for every extraction process in the mining industry

Flottweg decanters are virtuosos in the mining industry - above all when it comes to processing ore and minerals. Ore processing is highly important, particularly in the production of precious metals and non-precious metals. This process uses decanters in various mining applications: gold and silver, lead and zinc, nickel and copper, platinum, lanthanoids.

There are numerous possible applications and processing methods for minerals: from the ceramics industry through to cosmetics for the paint industry - from straightforward mechanical processing through to use in chemical processes - everything is possible. This is why use of a decanter is particularly suitable. The decanter plays a central role in processing minerals for the following applications: kaolin, calcium carbonate, titanium dioxide, barite, zinc sulphate, aluminium hydroxide.

Our separation technology solutions can be used in almost all extractive processes of minerals, raw materials and ores. For more than 60 years, we have supported our customers to increase their profits and optimise their procedures with clever solutions. 

The core of all mining processes is the Flottweg decanter developed for them. It is the optimum solution for processing minerals and ore, and has innumerable possible applications. Our engineers have continuously developed the centrifuge and adapted it perfectly to meet the requirements of mining - for example through magnificent wear protection.
