General Description

The Dense Medium Separator model is designed to split solids based on size distribution and/or density. Therefore, the feed should contain solids with size distribution information. The model will calculate the split of solids between the floats and sinks streams based on the cut point (either calculated or defined) and the size distribution/density of the feed stream. The user can select any of the following methods:

  • User defined partition curve
  • Pivot partition curve
  • Stochastic partition curve
  • Baguley-Napier-Munn model

Requires Met Dynamics Add-On and license from Met Dynamics.

The diagram shows the default drawing of the Dense Medium Separator, with all of the streams that are required for operation of the unit.

The physical location of the streams connecting to the Dense Medium Separator is unimportant. The user may connect the streams to any position on the unit.
