Selectivity In Column Flotation Froth

Oct 01, 2003 A flotation column was constructed that employs a unique design to separate the froth and pulp during continuous operation. The column was split at the froth-pulp interface as shown in Fig. 3 so that instantaneous separation of the froth and pulp phases could successfully be achieved. The flotation column also incorporates the ability to provide instantaneous stoppage of the process …

    Feb 28, 2016 Column flotation cells, like mechanical cells, are used to perform mineral separations. Column cells do not use mechanical agitation (impellers). Instead, mixing is achieved by the turbulence provided by the rising bubbles. Columns are mostly used to produce final grade concentrates because they are capable of high selectivity.

    of the column improves selectivity by washing undesirable material that may get hydraulically entrained into the froth phase. A mayor constraint on column flotation capacity is froth overloading. The carrying capacity of the froth depends on the bubble surface area available for bubble-particle attachment.

    Flotation of fine ores. Flotation of fines requires special features: higher energy collection with smaller bubbles to guarantee a good recovery; a less turbulent regime / good slurry distribution to avoid bypass; and a fluid, thicker and more selective froth to generate a better product quality.

  • Froth Washing in Mechanical Flotation Machines Froth Washing in Mechanical Flotation Machines

    Oct 25, 2017 Froth washing in mechanical flotation cells improves metallurgical performance for two reasons. First, wash water increases water drainage between bubbles and washes out hydraulically and mechanically entrained/entrapped gangue particles. Second, wash water breaks bubbles in the top froth layer causing them to shower their load on to the ...

    Batch flotation tests were carried out in a column flotation, for mineral processing of kaolin by reverse froth flotation, in order to float quartz, goethite, ilmenite, rutile and tourmaline, the main penalty minerals of kaolin. In this case, the floated product concentrates the impurities and the tailings (sunk) is …

    Aug 01, 1995 A comparison of the test results indicates differences in the selectivity obtained by each flotation column on the basis of both ash and sulfur rejection. This finding may be due to variations in cell hydrodynamics and the ability to support a deep froth phase among the different column cells. In addition, throughput capacity of each cell was ...

    Dec 19, 2013 Flotation column is widely used as the separation equipment for fine mineral due to its high selectivity. However, this device may be unsuitable for the coarse particle flotation and has high handling ability. A two-stage flotation column with dimensions of 2 000 mm 1 000 mm 4 000 mm was designed to enhance the column flotation process. The energy input was modified by adjusting the …

    Jun 07, 2016 Higher Flotation Selectivity. Super-aerated pulp results in a highly selective flotation condition. The complete dispersion within the pulp allows for more thorough rejection of gangue and slime. The deeper froth column is a factor in selectivity between the mineral to be concentrated and gangue rejection.

    Column flotation cells have become increasingly popular in the coal industry due to their ability to improve flotation selectivity. The improvement can be largely attributed to the use of froth washing, which minimizes the nonselective entrainment of ultrafine minerals matter into the froth product. Unfortunately, the practice of adding
