What is the advantage of DZ973N copper extractant

DZ973N copper extractant has 35% aldoxime, 15% ketoxime and 50% solvent oil, the extraction ability is stronger than DZ988N, but the reverse extraction ability is weak, finally the copper net transfer all be 2.7 g/L.

LIX973N is a copper solvent extraction reagent. It is a high-performance extractant that is commonly used in the copper extraction process. It is designed to selectively extract copper ions from aqueous solutions, while leaving behind impurities such as iron and other metals. LIX973N has been widely used in the copper mining industry for many years and is manufactured by several chemical companies.

LIX973N and LIX984N are both copper solvent extraction reagents, but they have some key differences.

One advantage of using LIX973N is that it can operate at lower pH levels compared to LIX984N. This means that LIX973N can be more effective at extracting copper from the leach solution, especially when the starting pH is low.

Another advantage of LIX973N is that it has a lower viscosity than LIX984N. This allows it to flow more easily through the solvent extraction circuits, which can improve the overall efficiency of the copper extraction process.

However, LIX984N has its own advantages. For example, LIX984N has a higher loading capacity for copper and is better at handling organic contaminants in the leach solution. Additionally, LIX984N has been used in the copper extraction industry for a longer period of time compared to LIX973N, so its performance and reliability are well-established.

Ultimately, the choice between LIX973N and LIX984N will depend on the specific requirements of the copper extraction process, and it is important to carefully evaluate each reagent to determine which one is most suitable for the application.

Copper solvent extractants LIX973N and LIX984N have different chemical compositions, which result in their different usage in copper extraction processes.

LIX973N is a hydroxyoxime extractant that is primarily used in the extraction of copper from acidic solution. It has a higher selectivity for copper over iron compared to LIX984N and is suitable for use in acidic leaching environments such as heap leaching, dump leaching, and vat leaching.

On the other hand, LIX984N is a modified aldoxime extractant that is more commonly used in the extraction of copper from ammoniacal solutions. It has better copper selectivity than LIX973N in ammoniacal solutions and is commonly utilized in the solvent extraction stage of copper processing.

Therefore, the choice of copper solvent extractant depends on the specific leaching conditions and the desired copper extraction process.

LIX984N and LIX973N are both highly selective chelating agents commonly used in hydrometallurgical processes for the extraction of base and precious metals. The choice between these two chelating agents depends on specific process requirements and the properties of the metals being extracted.

LIX984N is more selective for copper and nickel, while LIX973N is more selective for cobalt and nickel. If the target metal is copper or nickel, LIX984N may be a better choice due to its higher selectivity for these metals. On the other hand, if the target metal is cobalt or nickel, LIX973N may be preferred due to its higher selectivity for these metals.

Other factors to consider include the pH and temperature of the extraction process, the concentration of the metals being extracted, and the presence of impurities. Both LIX984N and LIX973N have their specific operating ranges, and selecting the appropriate chelating agent is critical for achieving optimal extraction efficiency and product quality. Therefore, it is recommended to consult with a technical expert or conduct laboratory testing before selecting the suitable chelating agent for a specific process.
