Salter Cyclones has a fully operational laboratory and test facilities offering full investigative and performance verification services which are carried out under actual process conditions.

Equipment includes:

  • Hydrocyclone Test Rigs for Hydrocyclones from 10mm to 10 inch
  • Laboratory Multi-Gravity Separator for efficient separation and upgrading of fine metals and minerals, particularly in the particle range of 5-100 micron.
  • Laboratory Mineral Separator which is an invaluable tool for the quick and efficient separation of mineral grains of close specific gravity.

As a guide, if test work is needed with the larger Hydrocyclones in one of the test rigs, a minimum of 50 kg solids are required to make up to 350 litres of the slurry to be treated. Testing on the Multi-Gravity Separator requires 80 kg of dry solids weight.

PLEASE NOTE: an Incoming Sample Datasheet must be completed and returned to Salter Cyclones before any samples are sent or brought to the Laboratory.

Some test equipment is available for hire on a monthly basis. Please contact Salter Cyclones for quotes for test work at our Laboratory.
