Trends with Selection and Sizing of Large Flotation

Flotation response = particle characteristic x cell characteristic k = P S B R F where P = a parameter related to ore floatability S B = the bubble surface area flux (=6J G /d 32) R F = a froth recovery factor The bubble surface area flux is defined as the total surface area of bubbles available in the cell per unit cross-sectional area of cell per

Direct measurement of entrainment in large flotation cells

Jan 25, 2009 A key response variable to describe the metallurgical performance in a flotation cell is the concentrate grade. The mineral feed characteristics and conditioning determine the grade of the particles attached directly to the surfaces of the bubbles by true flotation, while the operating conditions, such as gas rate, bubble size, froth depth and others, determine the amount of gangue recovered

Jameson cell Wikipedia

The high intensity of the Jameson Cell means that it is much shorter than conventional column flotation cells (see Figure 1), and it does not require air compressors to aerate the suspension of ground ore particles and water (known as a slurry or pulp) in the flotation cell. The lack of a requirement for compressed air and the lack of moving parts means that power consumption is less than for

Advances in Fine and Coarse Particle Flotation: Canadian

Jul 18, 2013 Flotation works very well for particles that are typically in the range 20 to 150 μm in diameter, for base metal ores. In this range, it is possible to obtain quite high recoveries in conventional flotation machines. Outside this range, the recoveries decline progressively, whether it is with the very fine or thecoarse end of the size spectrum.
