 · During the study, particle size distribution, solid contents of the feed, feedrate and splitter position were changed. It was observed that in a spiral concentrator mica could be separated from feldspar owing to its laminar morphology. Accordingly, it was found that particle size and solid contents had significant effect on the separation.
