Recover the unachievable ore value

The need to process more finely disseminated and complex ore grades, as well as declining ore grades and the demand for improved flotation selectivity, all bring new challenges to minerals processing flowsheets.

The Concorde Cell technology helps flotation circuits overcome these challenges and achieve improved efficiency in fine and ultra-fine particle recovery.

Outperform recovery

The Concorde Cell is Metso’s proposition for more finely disseminated and complex orebodies. Combining the well-proven TankCell® with Concorde Cells is a low risk and high benefit approach for minerals processing flowsheets.

The Concorde technology offers a superior recovery rate for fine and ultra-fine particles. The cell produces very high shear and extremely fine bubbles which increases recovery in particles under 20 microns.

Key features

• High energy dissipation and smaller bubble size distribution produced by supersonic shockwaves
• Forced air allows higher air-to-pulp ratios
• Internal tailings recycling and integrated level control independent of flotation air control

Technology leap

The patented Concorde technology is the first fine and ultra-fine solution for complex and previously inaccessible ores types within various mineral processing flowsheets (e.g. gold, copper, nickel, platinum, silver, lead, zinc and molybdenium).

The Concorde forced air Blast Tubes treat 100% of fresh feed combined with tailings recycling for improved performance, so it allows for finer grinding to get extra liberation without the risk of valuable particles being reported into tailings.
