Magnetic separation using a Franz Isodynamic Magnetic Separator showed that the sands in 1998-99 also contained significantly more paramagnetic minerals such as amphiboles and pyroxenes than the present sands, which is additional evidence of a renewed source of sand from the bluffs during high lake levels.
Zircon was concentrated using standard heavy liquid (tetrabromoethane and methylene iodide) and isodynamic magnetic separation (0.5 A 10 [degrees] and 1 A 10 [degrees], respectively).
Its name (not an acronym) is derived from the Greek isos, meaning "equal," which yields the prefix iso--as in isometric (equal measure or dimensions), isodynamic (equal strength or intensity), and isonomy (political rights).
Derived from the Greek isos, meaning "equal," it's the root of the prefix "iso-" that occurs in many words such as "isometric" (of equal measure or dimensions), "isodynamic" (having the same strength or intensity), and "isonomy" (equality of political rights).
It is essentially an industrial scale version of the well-known Franz Isodynamic Separator.
Rock pulverization and mineral separation using a Wilfley table, heavy liquids, and a Frantz isodynamic separator were performed at University of Oviedo (Spain).
