Centre Director Laureate Professor Kevin Galvin presentation (JKMRC Seminar Series)

Beneficiation using RC Technology

Speaker: Professor Kevin Galvin, Director ARC Centre of Excellence for Enabling Eco-Efficient Beneficiation of Minerals, ·University of Newcastle

Abstract: We need to move towards greater process intensification, which requires a shift from the traditional rougher-cleaner-scavenger concept to the single stage separator. This should occur in conjunction with much more effective classification, including total desliming at ultrafine particle sizes.

Bio: Kevin Galvin is the inventor of the Reflux Classifier used in gravity separation of fine mineral particles. With over 240 installations around the world, the technology has been used to beneficiate iron ore, mineral sands, metallurgical coal, potash, chromite, lithium, and other base metal oxides. New innovative systems are emerging including the Reflux Flotation Cell and a novel agglomeration technology. Kevin Galvin is a Laureate Professor at the University of Newcastle, Australia. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering and previous recipient of numerous awards including the Ian Wark Medal, ATSE Clunies Ross Award, and Antoine Gaudin Award in mineral processing. He is Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Enabling Eco-Efficient Beneficiation of Minerals.
