:: Bayer Process can be Improved with the Use of a New Ultra PS

The CSIRO has released a podcast which explains how a new ultrasonic particle size analyser (Ultra PS) can improve the Bayer process. The Bayer process is the extraction of alumina from bauxite.

Dr Peter Coghill of CSIRO Minerals says the Ultra PS is a significant step forward in accurately and expeditiously measuring alumina hydrate particle size during the mineral processing. As particle size determines the quality of the alumina produced, this is an important measurement.

The information provided by the analyser is also useful in adjusting Bayer process conditions to generate particles of optimal size.
