Attrition Scrubber

The attrition scrubber/cell removes impurities on the surface of quartz sand through powerful scrubbing, which is an important part of the quartz sand production process. The attrition scrubber is used to scrub the sand slurry with a concentration of 65-70% and to scrub the mud and fine sand on the ore. Efficient attrition scrubbing of attrition scrubber removes unwanted contaminants, impurities, surface films, coatings, clays or slime, designed to achieve the strongest possible scrubbing to improve mineral values and create a more desired product, without damaging or degrading the recovered particles. The attrition scrubber can also be widely used in other industrial areas of scrubbing operation.

Features of attrition scrubber

1.The attrition scrubber has small power consumption, strong intensity of scrubbing and stirring, favorable effectiveness.

2.The impeller of attrition scrubber is above the slurry settling area, easy to start and low power to start.

3.The impeller of attrition scrubber is in low circumferential speed and long service life.

4.The structure of attrition scrubber is simple. 

5.The attrition scrubber has large effective volume and small installation space.

Working principle of attrition scrubber

The motor drives the main shaft of attrition scrubber to rotate through the belt pulley, causing negative pressure area on the impeller. When the material passes through , it is stirred and rinsed thoroughly, and then pushed out by the impeller and flows along the wall of the attrition scrubber tanks. As the material is continuously fed into the attrition scrubber, the cleaned material is constantly discharged from the discharge port to finish the scrubbing work. The ore pulp particles generate enormous momentum and cause violent friction and collision with each other. The impurity film wrapped on the surface of particles is easy to be separated from the ore surface by friction and impact. The adglutinate on the ore surface is soaked by water and then through the intense friction and collision between the ore particles, the adglutinate will also be loose and broken down, so as to achieve the separation of clay and ore particles. These film impurities and clay are broken down and flaked into the slurry, which can be separated after subsequent desliming.

Case 1:Columbia 4sets of AS2-2 attrition scrubber

The customer purchased four sets of AS2-2 attrition scrubber for producing quartz sand, scrubbing the impurities on the surface of quartz sand, and then be ready to the next step of mineral processing.

Case 2:Guyana 2sets of AS2-2 attrition scrubber

The customer purchased two sets of AS2-2 attrition scrubber at one time for local distribution, and won a good reputation in the local market and made a substantial profit.

I had extensive contact with Sinonine, visited its production base and equipment application, communicated with Sinonine's technical team for many times, and finally decided to cooperate with Sinonine. I am a local mining equipment dealer, need to constantly improve my product lines to meet the needs of different customers. Sinonine quartz sand production equipment is very suitable for me. They recommended me several types of equipment suitable for local use, provided perfect technical support, and at the same time gave me a lot of space in the price, which saved me a lot of trouble in the process of distributing equipment and made me a huge profit. Sinonine is a trusted company.


Sinonine sand washing plant can be applied to various sand production fields to clean, remove impurities, screen, grade, dewater. Sand products used in the different areas can be produced by different sand washing systems. Sinonine has developed a series of sand washing systems for construction, foundry, glass making, and oil fracturing, etc for processing different kind of sand, such as quartz, artificial sand, dune sand, river sand and other raw sand.
Sinonine high purity quartz sand production line is used to produce high purity and ultra-high purity quartz sand with SiO2 content higher than 99.999% for the production of quartz crucible and high-end electronics industry. Selecting the appropriate quartz stone as the raw material and processed in the high purity sand production line, through a series of purification processes the high purity quartz sand is obtained, an annual output of 3000-50,000 tons of large-scale industrial production capacity can be achieved. Sinonine owns the state-of-art technology in HPQ purification at the world's leading level.

The impact crusher is used for medium and fine crushing of stones. The design of Sinonine impact crusher adopts novel design principle, new concepts of crushing technology; meets demands of crushing different materials in different degrees. Sinonine Impact crusher not only has a great crushing ratio and fine products of uniform shape, also consumes less power per unit. The unique design of impact lowers its cost of repair and maintenance, thus improves its productivity and reduces its cost. Impact crusher proves the bright prospect of its application in mining processing industry through large scale projects.

Jaw crusher is primary crushing equipment in stone crushing line. Sinonine Jaw Crusher is of single toggle type with features of simple structure, easy maintenance, stable function, low operation cost, great crushing ratio. Jaw Crusher is used widely in mine, metallurgy, construction, road, railway, hydro-electric, and chemistry. It is suitable for the primary or secondary crush of large rock with compressive resistance no more than 320MPa. PE type is used for coarse crushing, and PEX type is used for fine crushing.
Apron feeder is to transport ore to primary crusher for evenly and continuously feeding. Apron feeder is important in ore feeding and conveying system, and also for short distance material delivery. Apron feeder is especially appropriated for transporting materials with large proportion, large particle size, and strong abrasiveness, and can work reliably in the open air, humidity and other harsh conditions. Apron feeder can be widely used in metallurgical, mining, cement, and building materials. Both horizontal and oblique installation is ok for apron feeder, the maximum installation angle of apron feeder can reach 25º.
