Feb 28, 2016  While column and conventional flotation results were again similar, the flotation column required 30 to 50 pct less reagent than conventional flotation. Furthermore, corrections to circuit operation were 3 times more rapid in the column than in the mechanical cell. This resulted in lower losses when flotation problems were encountered.

Oct 16, 2017  In direct flotation, columns have been used mainly for cleaner stages due to their capacity for generating high-grade froths with fine material. The most common configuration involves a rougher with mechanical cells and a cleaner with columns, after regrinding the intermediate concentrates. This type of flowsheet aims at minimizing grinding costs.

COLUMN FLOTATION TECHNOLOGY Flotation columns derive their name from the geometric shape of the vessel. Unlike conventional mechanical cells, column cells are tall vessels ranging in height from 25 feet (7.6m) to more than 50 feet (15.2m). The surface area of a column cell is smaller than that of a mechanical cell which helps to promote a ...

Unlike conventional flotation cells, columns do not use mechanical agitation. Feed slurry enters the column in the upper third of the body and descends against a rising swarm of fine bubbles generated by a gas sparging system. Targeted particles collide with and attach to the bubbles and rise to the top of the column.
