Laboratory grinding – Magotteaux Mill®
Real grinding conditions at lab scale
The Magotteaux Mill® is a laboratory mill designed to reproduce the pulp chemical conditions of the plant grinding mill in the laboratory. It allows the user to investigate the impact of grinding chemistry on their metallurgical process.
That is, the product generated in the Magotteaux Mill® has nominally the same physical properties (particle size distribution) and pulp chemical properties (Eh, pH, dissolved oxygen, oxygen demand and EDTA extractable iron) as an equivalent sample taken from the plant. This signifies a distinct advantage in testing as the results produced in the laboratory are now more representative of those that would be observed in a plant.
- Control of pulp chemistry, temperature and pH
- Continuous monitoring and automatic adjustment
