COLUMN FLOTATION MODELLING AND TECHNOLOGY

Industrial flotation columns are square or circular, typically 0.5-3m in diameter or side, and 12-15m height. Since their invention, square columns have been marketed commercially by the Column Flotation Company of Canada Ltd. The apparent simplicity of the column has led others to copy the original idea and make their own "homemade" columns.

Column flotation devices were re-introduced for mineral processing in the late-1960’s in Canada by Boutin and Wheeler (1967) at which time wash water addition to the froth was used to eliminate entrainment of hydrophilic materials to the float product. By the late-1980’s column flotation had became a proven

Application of Cavitation Based Micro-Bubbles to Recover

The rise speed of ANS oil droplets, bubbles, and oil droplets during flotation in water with 35 ppt salinity were measured using high speed videography. The rise speeds for the oil droplets were between 0.0147 mm/s and 0.16 mm/s. The rise rates for the air-oil mixture was between 0.3 mm/s and 1.6 mm/s, while the bubble rise speeds were

A study of bubble-particle interactions in a column

The bubble size in a flotation column was measured using an Olympus i-SPEED 3 high-speed camera. Relationships between the circulating volume, bubble size and bubble terminal velocity were discussed. Probabilities of collision, attachment, detachment and acquisition between bubbles and particles in different circulating volumes were calculated

Jet Flotation Column System Structure Design and Numerical

A laboratory scale jet flotation column system was designed and air inflation for flotation column was provided by jet aerator with a chamber. In order to understand interior flow field distribution of jet aerator and flotation column, two-phase turbulent flow model was established by use of commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software FLUENT 6.3.26.

Column and Contact Cell Flotation Mining SGS

As with a flotation column, the froth may be water washed meaning the contact cell can also be used as a cleaner cell. The contact cell is mainly used in rougher flotation circuits. It is compact, highly efficient, simple to operate, and has low energy and maintenance costs. There are a number of other benefits and capital savings that can be

Effect of column height on flotation column performance

Feb 01, 1988· The question is posed as to why columns typically have a collection zone 10 m high (H) by 1 m in diameter (D). Three geometry dependent factors are considered: degree of mixing, Np; volumetric bias rate, B; and volumetric gas rate, G. Increasing H:D decreased Np and B, which improves performance but decreases G, which causes the column to approach overloading.

TECHNICAL NOTES 9 FLOTATION Mineral Tech

8.1 A Kinetic Approach to Flotation Modeling Almost all successful models of the flotation process have been based on the premise that flotation is a kinetic process. In this way a model can be formulated in terms of a rate of flotation which can be quantified in terms of some of the many chemical and physical factors that define the environment
