Shaking Tables

Shaking tables rely on the fact that a heavier particles in a slurry move more slowly than light particles under the influence of external movement and drag from flowing water. Over the deck of a shaking table, this results in clear banding with finer and heavier particles crawling along at the ‘top’ of an inclined shaking table deck, and lighter and coarser particles moving diagonally from the feed point to the lower part of the deck. Shaking tables are suitable for small tonnages and they come into their own for final concentrate production and treatment of difficult streams where a critical separation is required.

GSL can provide shaking table testing on a laboratory-sized Wilfley 800 table with a capacity of up to 75 kg/hr, as well as the necessary classification prior to gravity separation.
