Flotation columns

Flotation Column This study was performed on a laboratory-scale flotation column built at FPInnovations, Paprican [20]. The column, shown in Figure 1, has a 10.2-cm diameter and a height of 4.65 m. The principle of the flotation column is simple. The pulp slurry, which is fed just underneath the froth level, descends in the column counter

    A Review of the Literature on Column Flotation

    Flotation columns first appeared on the market in the late 1960’s as an innovation in the field of froth flotation. Columns offered a solution, or at least an improvement, with respect to some of the problems encountered with conventional flotation cells. The most evident was the higher length-to-diameter ratio, which can be visualized as a

    Flotation Cell - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    Flotation columns, as they came to be known, were “invented” back in the 1960s in Canada [35]. The main feature that differentiates the column from the mechanical flotation cell (of Denver type) is wash water, added at the top of the froth. It was thought to be beneficial to overall column performance since it helps clean the froth from any

    Flotation columns also make use of air spargers that allows us to introduce air at the bottom of a tall column. The slurry is introduced above. The motion of the slurry flowing downwards and the air flowing upwards sort of generates a mixing action. Mechanical cells have a high throughput rate. However, the material produced is of lower quality

    decade, however, column flotation cells have emerged as an effective means for recovering the fine coal as a high grade product. The advantage of a column flotation cell over a conventional mechanical cell is the quality of the froth product. Column flotation cells use a combination of a deep froth and a high level of wash

    The Staged Flotation Reactor (SFR) was developed by going back to the first principles of flotation and examining how best to optimize the various phases of flotation without preconceived constraints. The result is a machine that optimizes the three stages of flotation within three separate zones, such that each zone is mutually exclusive from

    Conventional mechanically agitated flotation machines use relatively shallow rectangular tanks, whereas column cells are usually tall vessels with heights normally varying from 7 to 16 m as per requirement. Column cells do not use mechanical agitation and are typically characterised by an external sparging system, which injects air into the
