Paste Thickener Tailings Solutions

Water Recovery and Tailings Disposal Improved With Paste Thickening

Traditionally, waste disposal has been an environmental challenge for mining. But now the industry has begun to embrace paste, or thickened tailings, as a way to address the challenge. Paste thickening is different than conventional thickening. Specifically, it integrates critical parameters in the thickening, pumping, and disposal of tailings to handle the yield stress.

Managing paste thickener tailings provides benefits such as improved water recovery and dam safety, as well as more effective reclamation/re-vegetation. By taking into account the feed characteristics and standard bench-scale tests, our experience with paste thickener installations can help you make the right thickener selection.
