Multi-gravity seperator, more popularly known as MGS,burst into the mineral dressing scene around the mid eighties. Since then it has found acceptance in a wide variety of applications. It has replaced column cells for fine cass-eterite recovery in Wheal Jane in the UK and has been found to be the only equipment which could satisfactorily remove graphite front lead concentrate in Hindustan Zinc mines. MGS has found application in Tantalum recovery as also for upgrading Graphite concentrate. The capability of the machine to recover very fine particles (upto 2-3 micron) and produce a clean concentrate has made it a favoured equipment over a wide range of specific gravities. This paper deals with the details of the constructional features and operational aspects of Multi gravity sepe-rator Live cases have been discussed.
