Solvay’s  AERODRI® dewatering aids are used to reduce cake moisture in the filtration of mineral slurries, such as sulfide flotation concentrates, iron ore concentrates and coal concentrates, and tailings and alumina trihydrate in the Bayer process. These dewatering aids increase filtration throughput in mineral processing by reducing moisture content and improving release of the filter cake. They offer unique chemistry that can significantly increase production rates and lower energy and transportation costs.
