Our range includes:

DEHSCOFIX® SC Products

Coagulants: Polyethylene Glycol

Colloidal silica can cause problems with flocculation, initiating crud
formation in solvent extraction (SX), decreasing extraction kinetics and
increasing SX phase disengagement times. Our coagulants help to
improve process efficiency and reduce organic reagent losses by
minimizing crud formation.

DEHSCOFIX® EW900

Acid Mist Suppressant

In the final stage of electrowinning oxygen bubbles form on the anode. Bursting of these bubbles at the solution/air interface produces fine acid-containing liquid droplets which become airborne and disperse throughout the workplace as acid mist. Suppressing this reduces the health hazard to workers and prevents severe structural and equipment corrosion in tank houses.

DEHSCOFIX® DA 72

Dewatering Aid

Our DEHSCOFIX® DA range of water-soluble dewatering aids reduce cake moisture in the filtration of mineral slurries and give a more even filtering of water by combining excellent wetting properties with surface tension reduction.

DEHSCOFIX® DG Products

Carbon Blanking Reagent

By using the correct dosing strategy, Dehscofix® DG products can
completely adsorb on to the preg-robbing carbon without any excess left in the solution to impact downstream. The result is a higher gold recovery.
