Abstract Scope Bauxite pisolites found in the Cape York region in Australia are typically near spherical particles. Ore extracted from the Andoom (Weipa) deposit goes through a beneficiation plant to remove the finer fraction, that otherwise lead to handling problems. A key part of the beneficiation flowsheet is a fluidized bed classifier, where fine particles are removed with an overflow system. The objective of this project was to study and understand the solid/liquid separation phenomena taking place in the fluidized bed, especially determining the role of the granular properties in controlling the separation mechanisms. Lab-scale experiments, using a transparent tank and glass beads of controlled grain-size, in place of bauxite, allowed an accurate observation of the fluidized bed behavior. Computer modeling using multi-phase flow, was used to perform the numerical simulations of the experimental setup and establish the relative effects of the parameters that control the separation processes in the fluidized bed.
