About the HyperSparge™

High intensity gas injection at supersonic speeds for efficient, trouble free leaching and oxidation. 

The HyperSparge™ is a proven and cost effective system for delivering air, oxygen or other process gases into tanks or vessels for leaching or oxidation processes. The HyperSparge™ is a gas sparging technology that uses an alloy steel injection lance fitted with a hard wearing ceramic nozzle to inject a concentrated supersonic jet of gas into the process solution or slurry. The supersonic gas jet enters the process stream at velocities in excess of 400 m/s, creating a region of very high local shear, resulting in very efficient mass transfer.

HyperSparge™ advantages

  • Increased leaching rates
  • Lower oxygen consumption
  • Live insertion, removal and maintenance - no process downtime
  • Improved safety
  • Lower cyanide use in CIL circuits
  • Simple design and construction
  • Robust, long life materials
