African copper producer cuts froth in challenging conditions
A hydrometallurgical facility in the African copper belt was struggling with froth, a common issue in plants that process highly carbonaceous material. Not only was the froth causing operational issues, it constrained capacity, leading to production losses of approximately $5 million a day. Kemira KemFoamXTM 9980 brought it under control.
