Benefits of Beneficiation

What is beneficiation and how can it benefit your business?

In the mining industry, the standard definition of beneficiation is any process that improves (benefits) the economic value of mined ore by removing valueless materials, resulting in a higher grade of product.

At ST Equipment & Technology, our definition differs slightly in that we not only improve the value of the product coming out of our proprietary triboelectric belt separator process, we can also collect all of the useful materials separated out, to provide you with a variety of grades of product.

This is good for your business in a number of ways:

  • You not only have a better final product, you also have additional income streams from the other useful products that are separated out. More profit, from the same amount of work? Yes please!
  • A high-volume stream of product can be processed very quickly and economically.
  • The separation process works for a number of different industries beside mining operations. In fact, our process is so good, it is especially beneficial to the Fly Ash as well as Feed & Food industries, because we can process and collect very fine particles.
  • Our method is a dry process that can extend the particle size range down to a level where only wet-separation flotation techniques have been successful in the past. This not only eliminates your need for a fresh water source, it is far more environmentally-friendly.

So, the bottom line is your bottom line. You get more from your current operations, through a process that generates additional potential income via a very fast, economic and ecofriendly process. Even better, this process can be done on-site, so you don’t have to spend a fortune trucking materials to a separation facility.

If all that beneficiation sounds beneficial to you, give us a call and let’s get your operation moving forward.
