Viscosity modification

Rheology changes of mineral ore slurries

PIONERA’s BioPolymers are versatile additives that increase returns for our customers. Application results in important savings with minimal Health, Safety or Environmental issues.


PIONERA BioPolymers are able to reduce the viscosity of a given ore slurry. As a result, solids content can be increased while maintaining the same viscosity resulting in higher throughput. Additionally, it can be important to reduce the necessary water to obtain a desired viscosity due to lack of water or due to the need of eliminating water in the thickening process step.
