  • Maximize Precious Metals Recovery with CCD Circuits and

    Lixiviation is often followed by a Counter Current Decantation (CCD) circuit to recover the valuable mineral from the gangue. CCD consists of washing the feed slurry in a series of thickeners until the majority of the dissolved metals are removed. The conventional cho for this process has been high-rate thickeners.

  • Counter Current Decantation (CCD) SysCAD Documentation

    General DescriptionBehaviour When Model Is OffModel TheoryData SectionsAdding This Model to A ProjectThe Counter Current Decantation (CCD) model is used in ProBal mode to quickly determine the concentration in the final over and under flow streams from a series of thickeners. The user is required to specify the number of stages in the system. The underflow from the model will have the same percentage solids as the feed to the system. Any solids in the wash stream will report to the overflow stream. This model is designed to be used as a quick means of determining the effect of differing numbers of stage
  • Counter Current Decantation Design Formula

    The principle of Counter Current Decantation is simply that, when water or solution is to act upon solids, both are made to pass, in contact, in opposite directions, so that at each end the strongest or most potent portion of either is acting upon the weakest or most exhausted portion of the other. The recovery of dissolved gold and silver from slime pulp in the cyanide process, as first
