How to Improved Fine Particle & Bubble Flotation

Jan 05, 2018· Fine-bubble flotation recovered more copper than conventional flotation with a near equal or better concentrate grade. At constant airflow the smaller bubbles brought about an increase in the number of bubbles. More bubbles increased the bubble-particle collision probability and improved flotation recovery of the fine-sized particles.

Recover Ultrafine Chalcopyrite by Flotation

Apr 03, 2018· The explanations for this drop in flotation recovery have included (1) slower flotation kinetics for ultrafine particles, proposed by Trahar (1976) and Kelley (1982), (2) low probability of particle-bubble collision due to the particle size to bubble size ratio, proposed by Kelley (1982) and Ahmed (1985), and (3) hydrophilic particle surfaces ...

Effects of particle size on flotation performance in the ...

Feb 15, 2019· The optimum size fraction of copper in the separation flotation process was basically consistent with that of gold. It is worth noting that the maximum recovery of copper was obtained at the size fraction of −74 + 58 μm with a copper recovery of 89.34%, followed by the −43 + 20 μm and − 58 + 43 μm size fractions.

Advances in Coarse Particle Flotation - Copper and Gold

Jul 15, 2013· As a result, flotation circuits are generally configured to process only fine particle size classes in order to maximise recovery in the primary stages. Eriez has invented a novel flotation technology, the HydroFloat, which overcomes these limitations by carrying-out flotation in a dense, fluidised-bed medium allowing for the recovery of coarse ...

Coarse-particle flotation applied to copper sulfide ores

The benefits of coarse-particle flotation are diverse, so the question is why is it not applied today? The main reason perhaps is that conventional flotation technologies are not efficient at coarse-particle flotation. Figure 1 shows the relationship between particle size vs. recovery of valuable ore for various operations using conventional cells.
