Flotation system is based around a group of 6 float cells arranged in a circular tank, each individual cell fitted with impellers, air spargers and froth launders. Host of benefits in the design; better mixing in slurry applications, resulting in greater efficiency for reactions and a greater uniformity within the tank. This results in fast flotation kinetics and better recoveries over conventional systems.
FLOTATION Flotation is the most widely used mineral separation method. It is the preferred method of mineral recovery for many of the most important minerals that are recovered and large tonnages of ore are processed by flotation annually. The underlying principles of the flotation process are well established but it has proved to be
Geco Flotation Cells. In the Geco New Cell Flotation Cell the pneumatic principle is utilized in conjunction with an agitating device. The machine, which is illustrated in Fig. 44, consists of a trough or cell made of steel or wood, whichever is more convenient, through the bottom of which projects a series of air pipes fitted with circular mats of perforated rubber.
Flotation as applied to mineral processing is a process of concentration of finely divided ores in which the valuable and worthless minerals are completely separated from each other. Concentration takes place from the adhesion of some species of solids to air bubbles and wetting of the other series of solids by water.
