Improve efficiency of flotation separation processes for a wide range of ores and minerals.
AERO® promoters are used extensively for the flotation of a wide range of minerals including copper, gold, lead, zinc, nickel, iron and many others. Solvay promoters are designed to operate across a broad range of alkalinity levels and to provide faster flotation kinetics, especially at lower alkalinity levels. AERO promoters are effective in increasing grade, recovery and throughput with corresponding lower modifier costs - ultimately providing better overall metallurgical performance in the plant.
Solvay offers AERO® NP promoters, a line of reagents used to treat complex nickel ores. AERO® NP promoters are highly selective, limit worker exposure to hazardous chemical handling and cover a wider range of selectivities versus commonly used xanthates. They address the nickel industry’s longstanding separation efficiency challenges and support additional nickel concentrate production to meet anticipated demand for electric vehicle batteries.
