iCON i150 Gravity Concentrator


How iCON Fine Mineral Recovery Works

Gold Recovery Gravity Concentrator i150The iCON Gravity Concentrator is designed to capture all heavy minerals including Gold, Silver and PGMs. It uses a centrifugal field to concentrate very fine, free minerals that are not recoverable using the traditional techniques of small scale and artisanal miners.

iCON technology is based on the batch-type Falcon Gravity Concentrator and designed by the same Falcon engineers that design concentrators for the largest mines in the world.

In operation, material is fed as mixture of milled rock and water into a rotating bowl that includes special fluidized grooves or riffles to capture the heavy minerals.

Periodically, a rich mineral concentrate is rinsed out that requires further upgrading to be turned into a final gold product.


  Features that make the iCON Gravity Concentrator ideal for small scale applications include:
