Consep has exclusively represented the Knelson Concentrator since 1990, servicing the Australian and South East Asian markets. In 2011 FLSmidth purchased the company Knelson Concentrators of Canada, and since this time Consep has enjoyed a close partnership with the Precious Metals group of FLSmidth. This partnership includes Consep’s continued representation of the Knelson Concentrator for the Australian and South East Asian markets.
With over 500 installations in this region and over 3000 worldwide, the Knelson Concentrator is proven as the most efficient unit for free gold recovery.
The Knelson Concentrator has the following unique features:
- The patented tangential fluidisation effectively dilates the concentrating bed for more efficient recovery and shortens the flush time.
- The upper and lower frame design is separated with vibration isolators that helps extend bearing life and eliminates concerns with minor imbalance in the concentrate load.
- It has the greatest capture area per unit capacity of any centrifugal gravity concentrator.
- It has the smallest footprint per unit capacity of any centrifugal gravity concentrator.
Knelson Concentrators are available in two distinct models; the Batch Knelson Concentrator (KC) and the Continuous Knelson Concentrator (CVD) which are detailed below. Alternatively feel free to contact our team to see how we can assist with your project.
