Matec Attritec Attrition Cell

Attritec attrition cells are used for the recovery of sand and fines through the scrubbing of contaminants within wet processing applications.

Attritec attrition cells are used to effectively remove the pollutants on the surface of sand in contaminated slurries by scrubbing (friction). Scrubbing is generated by agitators inside the machine. The machine has two or more cells according to the contact times needed for optimal separation.

The attrition cells are an ideal step to be implemented before the hydrocyclonic process of the slurry. Their applications are as follows:

  • Contaminated sites (soil-washing): the soil particles are washed in order to disintegrate the contaminants from their surfaces
  • Pre-flotation treatment of the slurry: the washing of the particles before the flotation process guarantees an increase in the selectivity and a reduction of consumption of reagents
  • Mechanical preparation of minerals
  • Separation of grains of sand from minerals and cement
  • Removal of clay and iron stains from sand
  • Breaking up of balls of clay and bituminous material for the recovery of valuable minerals which may be present on the sand grains
  • For an intensive conditioning, ideal for lime slaking
