Froth flotation has been a stalwart in mineral beneficiation for more than 100 years. During this time, and particularly in the past 20 30 years, there have been significant advances in the design and application of mechanical elements for flotation systems, e.g., new mechanisms, launders, larger cell volumes, better pumps, etc.
Nalco Water offers a diverse range of froth flotation and collector programs to achieve the right balance of kinetics, strength, stability, and selectivity. By implementing a customized solution, Nalco Water can help you improve copper and / or molybdenum recovery and increase the profitability of your operations.

1 Froth Flotation Fundamental Principles Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then carried to the surface and
Froth flotation is a process that selectively separates materials based upon whether they are water repelling or have an affinity for water . Importantly, the word flotation is also used in the literature to describe the process in density separation in which lighter microplastics float to the surface of a salt solution.
Environmental Impact of Flotation Processing Valuable minerals in an ore can be separated from each other, and from worthless minerals, by the froth flotation process. The need for a process to extract ore arose from major sulfide mineralization after the oxide ores had been depleted.
At present, the commonly used beneficiation processes include gravity separation, magnetic separation, flotation and so on. The chemical beneficiation process such as flotation process is more complicated than the physical beneficiation process su...
