Modelling of negative bias column for coarse particles ...

Abstract A model for coarse particle flotation in columns operating with negative bias is presented. The model assumes plug flow of particles and bubbles, low turbulence, and a collection mechanism based on bubble-particle interception. Experimental results obtained with quartz and calcite are in close agreement with the predicted values for particle sizes in the range 100 to 700 microns.

Flotation of Fine Particles: A Review | Semantic Scholar

ABSTRACT Literature shows that flotation is highly size dependent and processing both coarse and fine size fractions is problematic. The latter is the subject of the current paper. Fine particles have a relatively high surface area, and therefore more reagents are needed for their processing. In addition, the problem of fine particle flotation is mainly due to their low collision and ...
