Efficient concentration depends on proper selection of draw-off ports and the splitter openings used. Heavy minerals such as ilmenite or hematite settle out rapidly in a spiral concentrator and they should be removed as soon as a good wide band forms. Since the concentrate band is wider at the top, splitters near the top of the spiral concentrator should be opened wider than those near the bottom. This means that the splitters collect concentrate at a relatively uniform grade rather than uniform rate.
