Washbox in gold Mining

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The washbox finds extensive application in the processing of metallic ores such as tungsten ore, wolfram ore, gold dust, tin ore, and more. Its utility extends beyond the separation of fine mining particles, encompassing significant roles in the separation of larger aggregates. The maximum feed size typically ranges from 6 to 8mm, with occasional adjustments possible up to 12mm.

Structural Components:
This equipment falls under the category of deep chute mining dressing equipment, comprising a jigger-room. The jigger-room, in turn, consists of essential components like the machine frame, driving equipment, moving equipment, and cone drum. As the raw ore enters the jigger room through the first section, the washbox initiates its operational sequence.

Operational Mechanism:
The displacement of both light and heavy minerals correlates with the current displacement, ascending with the increasing water current. Light minerals, being less dense, ascend more readily and to greater heights compared to heavy minerals. The water current is adjusted to meet specific requirements, leading to a reduction in the displacement of heavy and light minerals. As a result, heavy minerals settle earlier, forming a surface layer on which light minerals fall. This classification is achieved based on the distinct densities of the minerals.

Dissepiment Function:
The introduction of dissepiment induces a vertical water current, facilitating the classification of minerals based on density. This process results in the separation of minerals according to their respective densities.

Twin Filler Side Dissepiment Wash Box Structure:
This variant of the washbox comprises two identical jigger-rooms, each consisting of a machine frame, driving equipment, moving equipment, and cone drum.

Operational Workflow:
Raw ore enters the jigger room, and the dissepiment creates a vertical water current, enabling the classification of minerals based on density.

Key Accessories:
The continual impact of the vertical crossing water current leads to the classification of non-uniform small granules with varying density and granularity into distinct layers within the washbox. These layers consist of the upper layer (containing light minerals) and the underlayer (housing heavy minerals).

Dynamic Displacement:
The displacement of both light and heavy minerals evolves with the water current displacement. The adjustment of the water current results in decreased displacement, causing heavy minerals to settle earlier than light minerals. This enables the classification of minerals based on their differing densities.
