The flotation machine is composed of single or multiple flotation cells, by agitating and inflating the chemical reagent treated slurry, some mineral ore particles are adhered to the foam and float up, and then be scraped out, while the rest remains in the slurry.
Specifically designed to maximise fine particle recovery, the Dorr Oliver flotation cell is the most energy efficient, technically advanced, forced air flotation machine on the market. Its air dispersion capabilities exceed all competitive forced air designs an important consideration for fine particle recovery. Stay updated on your industry
Feed slurry was mixed with entrained air in an agitation box and flowed into the separation vessel where froth was collected as overflow. The design would be the basis for the Minerals Separation Corporation standard machine and early flotation cells used in the United States .
The remarkable performance of our machines is related to flotation favourable hydrodynamics, which produce higher active cell volumes, provide longer residence times, and complement froth removal. Greater availability. The test of time has proven, as well, that competing equipment cannot match the availability of our flotation machines.
For more than a century now, flotation has been at the heart of the mineral processing industry. In this months SPOTLIGHT FEATURE ARTICLE, direct from the November issue of INTERNATIONAL MINING magazine, John Chadwick examines new technologies and applications from some of the key players in mineral flotation, a technique that is so important to the global industry.
