Moly-Cop's has a range of frothers that offer a wide spectrum of compositions and strength
The separation of valuable minerals through an efficient flotation process is paramount in order to liberate the maximum value from extract ore operations. Moly-Cop provides a wide range of solutions to assist our customers to optimize their flotation processes.
Moly-Cop has a range that provides flotation solutions for sulfide and non-sulfide minerals as well as non-metallic ore processing. Moly-Cop works with formulated foaming and defoaming agents of various origins. Our frothers include both alcohol and glycol-based products all or which are formulated for optimum effectiveness in various types of flotation systems within the mineral processing industry.
Moly-Cop produces and markets frothers for froth flotation of minerals. Our strength lies in our ability to develop chemicals formulations, together with mining companies, which are specific to individual operations.
Tailored Foaming Formulations
Among the foaming formulations that Moly-Cop has developed are:
We also have a line of foaming and defoaming products based on the glycol chemical family - the Dowfroth™ P-series:
Moly-Cop markets a range of anti-frothing agents:
Tailored Foaming Formulations
For the froth Flotation process, Moly-Cop has been involved in developing new frothers in order to improve metallurgical performance and dosage. The broad range of products developed by Moly-Cop, allows us to address specific mineral processing problems by providing the best chemical solution which is not governed by the need to be product specific. The ability to source its products on a global basis gives security of supply as well as economic benefits to our customers.
Moly-Cop distributes a line of foaming products based on the glycol chemical family - the Dowfroth™ P-series:
Is a glycols based flotation frother, introduced to the market by The Dow Chemical Co. in 1950. It’s the standard frother for a wide variety of applications, however is recommended particularly where a good degree of selectivity is required together with high recovery for a broad range of fine/medium particle flotation systems of the sulphide minerals of copper, lead, zinc and copper/nickel. Moly Cop is the distributor of DowfrothTM 250.
Is a glycol based flotation frother. This is the strongest glycol frother produced by Dow Chemical Co therefore it is recommended for a broad range of medium to thick particle flotation including the sulphide minerals of copper, lead, zinc and copper/nickel.
This glycol based frother is completely water soluble therefore is recommended for use when there is the potential for the premature rupture of foam. It is also recommended for a broad range of medium/thick particles flotation system of sulphide minerals.
Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol (MIBC)
Is an alcohol based flotation frother. It is recommended where a good degree of selectivity is required together with high recovery; being a moderate frother it is recommended for a broad range of particle flotation systems for fine particles.
The P Series Polypropylene Glycols are clear, viscous liquids with low pour points. Dow’s P-series polyglycols are linear polymers containing two terminal hydroxyl groups.
Is an organic reagent based on polypropylene glycol widely used in applications where it is necessary to prevent excessive foam formation.
Is an organic reagent mix of polypropylene glycol and hydrocarbon widely used to prevent excessive foam formation particularly in Mo flotation circuits from sulphide ore.
