Mineral Jig, 9 x 16
The Sepor 9×16 mineral jig is a fixed bed design, selective simplex mineral jig for use separating heavy density material from light density material. The 9×16 jig has a screen bed 9″ wide by 16″ long for a total of 1 square foot of jig bed area. The bed is covered with a stainless steel wedge wire screen with 3 mm openings. The Sepor jig is actuated by 1/2 Hp electric motor which drives an adjustable eccentric fixed shaft connected to a rubber diaphragm. By rotating the eccentric shaft, the stroke may be adjusted, reducing or increasing the action of the diaphragm. A rotating water valve is used to inject water into the diaphragm compartment on the upward stroke and reduce the effect of the suction stroke. A water inlet is provided for adding an additional water column through the bed while jigging. The jig is completely assembled on a sturdy structural steel frame. A 25 pound charge of 3/16″ hardened jig shot is included with the jig.
Once the water supply is connected and regulated, there is little operator attention required during jig operation.
The Sepor 9 X 16 Selective Simplex Mineral Jig has been used in gold, diamond, lead/zinc, and tin recovery operations. In the environmental field, the Sepor 9 X 16 Selective Simplex Mineral Jig has been used in soil remediation projects to remove high density contaminates from the soil. The 9 x 16 jig is suited for laboratory, pilot scale operations or small production operation. The capacity of the 9 x 16 jig ranges from 1/2 to 1 TPH, depending upon the characteristics of the ore/feed material.
