SNF South Africa works hand in hand with SNF CHEMQUEST.
SNF CHEMQUEST has been involved in the mining industry for many years and offers a broad range of products.
SNF CHEMQUEST South Africa is a preferred channel for the South African Mining industry.
Mining operations using a wet process will use speciality mining reagent or flocculants at various stages of their operation: mining and primary crushing, beneficiation plant including flotation concentrators, hydrometallurgical and metal refining processes, tailings and effluent treatment.
In pyrometallurgy, SNF products are used mainly for palletisation and sintering (iron ore, nickel sintering). Speciality chemicals would be used for the removal of heavy metals from liquid effluent produced by off-gas circuits.
In material handling, SNF provides technical solutions for dust reduction (tracks, mines, stockpiles and shipping port), dredging, hydraulic transport of slurries and antiscaling reagents.
SNF’s products are used worldwide, for the Copper, Alumina, Nickel, Gold, Iron ore, Coal, Phosphate, Industrial minerals and Industrial sands Aggregates. In short, every mining application imaginable. SNF is not only a manufacturer of products but is there to contribute with it customers to reduce capital and operational costs of processing plants, reduce energy and water consumption and minimise it’s environmental footprint. The environment, health and safety management is of capital importance to our group and is a fundamental aspect of any good business practice. SNF engineers and researchers work on development of new product technologies which address these issues. In the field, our technical experts provide the necessary services to achieve these objectives.
SNF FLOPAM is a range of flocculants that are speciality products. They offer the widest variety of ionicities and molecular weights. This allows mining houses to select the best product for every step of their mine’s process, wether they have a need for clarifiers, thickeners, filtration or tailings thickening.
