Course Contents : Some branches of engineering, even though more slowly than the technological developments, new discoveries are in the ore beneficaiton. Many ores, without any enrichment process is sent to the industry. For example: iron, chromium, manganese ores and coal. Some chrome ores are beneficated according to the density difference. On the other hand, copper, antimony, lead-zinc and sulfur ores have been beneficated by flotation in very fine grinding. For this purpose, if the physical properties of the ores has a more subtle difference in the sizes of the roads to be followed for the introduction of the separation can be made. Then how about this plant's design and product characterization by means of software packages are covered by the general content of the course.
Languages of Instruction : Turkish
Course Goals :
Course Aims : Today, due to increasing demand as a yield and high-grade ore deposits being depleted. As a result of the caused by consumption low-grade and grain size of the fine material is increased orientation. Low-grade ore enrichment plants, and grain size of material required and the processing of fine coal, coal preparation plants throughout the world as a result of the acquisition of two important trends should have an evaluation on the agenda. Fine grains, depending on physical properties as a result of this evaluation have emerged to enrich the new devices. Enrichment of the course is based on the physical properties of fine particles of devices which will be introduced, preferred devices kavranacak reasons, students' perspectives will be developed by giving examples of industrial applications.
