Kevin Galvin is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering and a previous recipient of numerous awards including the Ian Wark Medal, the ATSE Clunies Ross Award, and the Antoine Gaudin Award in mineral processing.
He is also the inventor of the Reflux Classifier used in the 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.
