With over 70 years of mineral processing experience and reagent scheme development experience, SGS is known to have the expertise to design robust flotation reagent circuits.


Successful flotation involves proper liberation and proper reagent selection. The proper reagent selection will induce selected minerals to become hydrophobic (water repelling) or hydrophilic (water attracting) and thus significalty affect recovery. Our experts develop a flotation reagent scheme that will work optimally in your flotation circuit. We provide impartial, third-party reagent expertise, optimizing the effectiveness of your flotation flowsheet and minimizing operating costs.

SGS maintains an extensive, on-site inventory of major solvent extraction reagents, diluents and modifiers including oximes, amines and phosphoric/phosphonic acids. In addition, with our active network of contacts with reagent manufacturers and suppliers, fresh or unusual reagents can be sourced readily. Our strong ties with reagent suppliers ensure the most effective, practical, and innovative (if necessary) methods for mineral separation are applied to your bench flotation tests or pilot plant program.
