HYDROCARBON DILUENTS FOR METAL EXTRACTION: ELIXORE
Metal extraction: Hydrocarbon fluids ELIXORE
Total hydrocarbon fluids are used as diluents in the organic phase necessary for leaching (5 to 10% extracting agent and 80 to 90% diluent). They dilute the extraction agent and allow the extracted metal to be transferred through the various steps in the process.
ELIXORE Hydrocarbon diluents advantages:
The ELIXORE range is fully suited to the needs of the application:
- The products’ low viscosity delivers rapid phase separation
- Their high flash point improves safety
- Their low vapor pressure reduces diluent loss by evaporation
- Due to their narrow boiling range, the solutions are stable and therefore offer greater operational control.
