IHC Robbins’s LST Laboratory is modular in design and containerised, making it easily relocatable and transportable. All required parts are provided, including a stock of LST Heavy Liquid, with replacement items available off-the-shelf as required. The facility only requires a supply of power, fresh water and compressed air (optional) to operate.
This unit is capable of processing up to 100 samples per day in a safe and efficient environment, or can be expanded to suit client needs.
- Fully containerised
- >99% LST recovery
Heavy Liquid Separations (HLS)
Also known as float-sink tests, HLS is a standardised analytical procedure that allows for controlled separation of materials by their density.
HLS is a useful tool for mineral exploration as well as for metallurgical evaluations. Ultimately, it is a fast, inexpensive and repeatable method to determine the Heavy Mineral (HM) content of a sample.
Traditional heavy liquids, such as bromoform and TBE, are highly toxic, volatile substances and in some cases are considered to be carcinogenic. LST Heavy Liquid is a non-toxic and stable alternative.
