With our vast array of suppliers/manufacturer partners, Quadra can help you find the optimal reagent to match your orebody specific mineralogy and support your production needs while meeting your safety and environmental objectives.
This process usually begins with a customer request looking for potential ideas on how to improve processing results (recovery, cost…) or how to best deal with a new mineralogical portion of their orebodies. Following discussions to fully comprehend the client objectives, one of multiple products can be selected for small scale testing. Depending on the reagent and processes involved, this can be done by having one of technical representative visit and work in the onsite laboratory facility, or through our associated manufacturer or third-party laboratories.
Following completion of the test work, a recommendation will be made including pros and cons as well as economical and logistical implications of the different reagents. In most cases, this will be followed by a plant trial, which based on client requirements, can include multiple reagents as well as on/off testing period. Quadra team will gladly support the plant trial with setup guidelines, testwork design, plant visits and remote support during the trial period.
As part of the plant trial or when getting ready for the introduction of a new reagent on site, Quadra’s team is available to work with the plant team to put in place a chemical handling seminar to review the safety aspects of the reagents being considered.
