Flocculation of fine fluorite particles with Corynebacterium xerosis and commercial long chain polymers

By Lisandra Naiara Rigo, Angela Maria Pinto, Norimar D'Avila Denardin and Ivo Andre Homrich Schneider


This work aimed to study, comparatively, the flocculation of fluorite particles with Corynebacterium xerosis cells and three commercial long chain polymers. Best flocculation results were obtained with cells of C. xerosis and with an anionic polyacrylamide. Both were effective in solids removal and water clarification, although flocculation with C. xerosis cells requires a higher dosage of reagent per mass unit of processed ore
