Column Flotation Cells - Mineral Processing Metallurgy

Feb 28, 2016  Column flotation cells, like mechanical cells, are used to perform mineral separations. Column cells do not use mechanical agitation (impellers). Instead, mixing is achieved by the turbulence provided by the rising bubbles. Columns are mostly used to produce final grade concentrates because they are capable of high selectivity.

About this site

Jan 01, 1985  Flotation columsn are counter-current bubble columns that have recently been applied to froth flotation separation of minerals. A unique feature of a flotation column is the water stream applied at the top of the column for the purpose of washing entrained nonfloatable particles from the floatable bubble-particle aggregate, consequently permitting high upgrading in a single separation stage.
