    Applications

    Solvent Extraction
    Orfom® SX diluents are considered the industry standard and are produced to optimize phase disengagement and metal recoveries for copper, cobalt, bickel, platinum, palladium, uranium, vanadiam, beryllium, zinc and lathanide series elements.
     
     
    Sulfide Mineral Flotation
    Orfom® Collectors are highly effective reagents for mixed sulfide flotation operations. These specialty materials optimize recovery and grade in ores containing specific and associated sulfide minerals of copper, molybenum and gold.
     
      
    Sulfide Mineral Depression
    Orfom® Depressants are proven reagents that effectively depress Copper, Iron and Lead sulfide minerals from Molybdenite.
