    I just saw this thread this morning for the first time, so that's why I hadn't responded previously. I'm the "Williams" in the LNW Engineering & Mining. The picture by tamrock is a picture of our LC-TB32 Centrifugal Bowl at the Elko Expo, of course. In remaining in compliance with board rules, I don't wish to provide further "Sales" data on our equipment directly, but if you have specific questions, I'm happy to answer any of those for you.

    As a course of the initial discussion, Concentrator Bowls can be very efficient in concentration of volume ore slurry. There are many factors in the overall performance of the different iterations of manufactures of bowls. We own I believe just about every brand of concentration bowl that has been produced for the past 50 years, up to and including Falcon SB250 models. Each one has a specific function that the designer was trying to accomplish and at times may have been effective at addressing and others, not so much.

    At the end of the day and all the dust settles, regardless of the equipment and processes you employ in your mining circuit, things have to be able to run smoothly and effectively without complications. As I have learned the hard way, life is complicated enough out on the mine; you certainly don't need to incorporate complexity into your grinding and recovery circuit if you don't have to.

    Dwight,

    I been a professional mi e for nearly 25 years now. In that time I have seen alot of things come and alot of things go. And I can honestly say much of it was "miners" mining miners with the latest and greatest gold getting piece of equipment.

    Now if what pczim says with having to add mercury to the system is true, then you should probably look into that as it is not operating efficiently.

    I know a crew here in Arizona that were running the iCON 150 and losing gold that was recovered in a shaker table that was the last piece of equipment in the system. A few changes where made and they were pretty much catching everything in the iCON. I believe they have stepped up to the Falcon now.
    Mining is how I make my living. I turn mountains into dust on a daily basis.

    I'm not understanding your posting entirely with regards to the "Miners" mining miners in this context as well as the reference to "pczim" commenting in a previous posting regarding someone using mercury in their mining operation to regards to my previous answering someone's question.

    Can you elaborate as to what you are referencing for better clarity?

    Dwight,

    As for "miners mining miners" I guess I gotta put it bluntly. Alot ofnleopel out there try to convince miners that their product is the best game in town when in all actuality its crap. So the miner lays put the cash for the product that is crap and gets the shaft in the end.

    Tamrock posted this up and pczim said he has four of these in operation in Africa that need mercury to be effective. So if a centrifugal concentrator needs mercury added to be effective, then it's a piece of crap.

    I've been around centrifugal concentrators a long time. While the concept is sound, very few actually work as advertised.

    Clear as mud?

    Welcome

    Looks like the one Posted just above is a knudson style, However looks like yours has a spiral shape, can you elaborate on how well it works on ultra fine where that gravity number is so very critical? I know a lot of people swear by Neff bowls.

    Thanks for your reply. I got the word "blunt", but not sure it's full intent and meaning. I'm assuming you are referring to my involvement in building mining equipment and our equipment as crap if I am understanding your "Blunt" aspect in your response. If you would reference this original thread, which Tamrock posted, I was simply responding to an already started topic, only to provide a point that I "Knew" who made the equipment that was seen at the Elko Mine Expo.

    With respect to a centrifuge concentrator needing mercury to actually function correctly, I would agree on that point, if you are needing mercury for recovery, you are not using a properly designed centrifuge. I would add however that centrifuge concentrators of dubious designs and quality are being used throughout Africa collecting mercury from the soil. The ground is so highly contaminated with past mining that the ore being ran through the centrifuges are collecting the mercury as a by-product since the Mercury cannot escape just as the gold cannot.

    Secondly, I don't see where pczim stated that our equipment was using mercury unless I am missing something somewhere. I personally am not aware of any of our centrifuge bowls being used with mercury for gold recovery. In the proper conditions, such as in a ball mill slurry at 200 mesh grind, our concentrator bowls will separate up to 500 mesh (-35 micron), depending upon the material being recovered and the gangue which it's being separated from.
