ergy efficiency for copper concentrator plant

Utah State University [email protected]

Within a copper concentrator plant, sometimes slurry flows need to be divided and sometimes collected. Figure 1 shows a simplified sketch with a typical copper concentrator plant process arrangement, illustrating different stages at which slurry flows are divided and collected according to practical requirements and equipment limitations. Figure 1.

The first two terms above apply only to concentrating collectors. The capture fraction is a measure of both the quality of the shape of the reflecting surface, and the size of the receiver. Often this is described in terms of ''spillage'' i.e. the fraction of reflected energy not impinging on or entering the receiver. A poorly shaped concentrator, or a receiver too small will make this ...

Copper in renewable energy

Renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, tidal, hydro, biomass, and geothermal have become significant sectors of the energy market. The rapid growth of these sources in the 21st century has been prompted by increasing costs of fossil fuels as well as their environmental impact issues that significantly lowered their use.. Copper plays an important role in these renewable energy systems.

Visualizing the Copper Intensity of Renewable Energy

 · Solar photovoltaics (PV) primarily rely on copper for cabling, wiring, and heat exchange due to its efficiency in conducting heat and electricity. Wind energy technologies make use of the red metal in their turbines, cables, and transformers. Offshore wind farms typically use larger amounts because they are connected to land via long undersea cables that are made of copper.
