Activated Carbon is widely used in mining for gold recovery. Granular Activated Carbon is used for adsorption of the gold-cyanide complex in carbon-in-pulp (CIP) and carbon-in-leach (CIL) systems. Since 1970 most of the Gold mines around the world have shifted to Activated Carbon based Gold recovery systems and discontinued chemical extraction.
The following grades are commonly used in mining industry for gold recovery applications:
|Mesh (Sieve) Sizes||CTC||Loss on Attrition||Platelets %|
|6 x 12 (3.350 X 1.750 mm)||45/50/55/60||1.5% max||3% max|
|8 x 16 (2.360 X 1.180 mm)||45/50/55/60||1.5% max||3% max|
|6 x 16 (3.35 mm X 1.18 mm)||45/50/55/60||1.5% max||3% max|
|**Moisture at 5%, Ash Content at 3% Max, Harness at 98% min and pH from 9 to 11|
PH can be adjusted based on the customer requirement.
We supply any customer specific grades (particle sizes) from 20CTC up to 80CTC with corresponding iodine value.
We ship in water proof plastic lined super sack bags. We also do custom packaging upon request.
