Mineral thickener is a solid-liquid separation device based on gravity sedimentation. It is usually a cylindrical shallow groove with a conical bottom made of concrete, wood or metal welded plates as a structural material. The slurry containing solid weight of 10% to 20% can be concentrated by gravity sedimentation into an underflow slurry with a solids content of 45% to 55%, and is installed in a thick machine for slow running (1/3 to 1/5 r/min). The effect of the enthalpy, so that the thickened underflow slurry is discharged from the bottom outlet of the bottom of the thickener.

Thickeners are widely used in hydrometallurgical, concentrating plants, chemical plants and other production sites where solid-liquid enrichment and separation are required. The diameter is 3 to 100 m and the depth is 2 to 4 m.
JXSC provides another type of drum high-efficiency thickener, and other dewatering machines you may interest in.


  1. The mineral thickener is a center drive thickener, which is traditional thickening equipment with a history of the earlier application.
  2. The mineral tailing thickener with a diameter of less than 12m is of manual handle type, and thickeners with a diameter over 12m adopt electric handle devices.
  3. Large-scale tailing thickener is usually arranged with a concrete tank, with overload indicating or alarming devices.
  4. This tailing thickener has features like a simple structure, low wearing and convenient maintenance.increases the strength by 3-4 times.

Product Structure

The mineral tailing mining thickener consists of cone thickener and harrow scrapping machine, the solid particles suspend in thickener settling by gravity, the pulp in the upper turn into clean water, so that the separation can be realized. The slime that sediment in the bottom of the thickener is discharged by the harrow scrapping continuously, and clean overflow from the upside.
