Product Detail

Sodium Isopropyl Xanthate is widely used as flotation reagents in the mining industry for multi-metal sulphide ore for good compromise between collecting power and selectivity. It can float all sulfides but is not recommended for scavenging or high grade sulfides because of the larger retention time required to get desired recovery levels. It is most commonly used in zinc flotation circuits because it is selective against iron sulfides at high pH (10 Min) while aggressively collecting the copper-activated zinc.
It has also been used to float pyrite and pyrrhotite if the iron sulfide grade is fairly low and the pH is low. It is recommended for copper-zinc ores, lead-zinc ores, copper-lead-zinc ores, low grade copper ores, and low grade refractory gold ores, but not recommended for oxidized or tarnished ores due to its lack of pulling power. It is also used as vulcanization accelerator for rubber industry as well.
Feeding method: 10-20% solution
Usual dosage: 10-100g/ton

Storage & Handling
