ABSTRACT

In this study, enrichment probabilities of Topraktepe (Yesildag-Beysehir)
chromites by Multi Gravity Separator were investigated. Multi Gravity Separator
tests were carried out using -106-75 μm particle size and 2500 g specimen.
The results of beneficiation studies showed that concentrate containing 57.52%
Cr2O3 was obtainable with a 79.83 % rate of recovery. The results of Multi Gravity
Separator test demonstrated that high recovery and high grade concentrates
have been obtained for 3 drum speed. The best result has been obtained at 150
rpm drum speed.

Keywords: Multi Gravity Separator, chromite, Topraktepe.
