the mac flotation cell is mainly used in the flotation section of waste paper deinking pulping, for removal of hydrophobic impurities such as filler, ash, ink particles, etc. it can increase pulp whiteness and meet the requirements of final paper appearance quality.
during the froth flotation process, occurs the separation of several types of sulfides, carbonates and oxides, prior to further refinement. phosphates and coal can also be purified by flotation technology.
from such analyses of the flotation process, three groups of size fractions are typically identified for the minerals: the intermediate size fractions displaying the most efficient separation of the valuable mineral, and the more troublesome fine and coarse size fractions.
the froth flotation process is about taking advantage of the natural hydrophobicity of liberated well ground minerals/metals and making/playing on making them hydrophobic water-repel individually to carefully separate them from one another and the slurry they are in. for this purpose we use chemicals/reagents: frothers mibc is what allows the formation of air bubbles.
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.
2.1. minerals. agitated flotation cells are widely used in the mineral processing industry for separating, recovering, and concentrating valuable particulate material from undesired gangue. their performance is lowered, however, when part of the particulate system consists of fines, with particle diameters typically in the range from 30 to 100 m.
sub-a flotation cells. the sub-a float machines used in the mineral, chemical, environmental, and industrial applications requiring the efficient dispersion of fine air or gas bubbles in slurries or liquids. the units are designed for continuous trouble-free, 24-hour operation and to handle fine and coarse-abrasive slurries.
abstract artificial neural network was used to predict the copper ore flotation indices of separation efficiency se and selectivity index si within different operational conditions.
