Carbon Adsorption Kinetics
Gold is typically recovered from solution by adsorption on to activated carbon in a carbon in pulp (CIP) or carbon in leach (CIL) circuit. The kinetics of this adsorption process is slow, so industrial practice is to load the carbon far short of the equilibrium loading potential. Having a robust understanding on the kinetics of gold adsorption is key to designing your adsorption circuit.
Grinding Solutions can provide quality engineering data by conducting batch kinetic adsorption tests which will allow your chosen engineering company to provide a detailed design of your CIP or CIL circuit.
