Froth Flotation A Quick Overview
Apr 06, froth flotation represents the most versatile separation method in mineral processing. it takes advantage of the different surface minerals properties to selectively separate more hydrophobic minerals from less ones towards interactions with air bubbles. flotation has been initially developed to treat the sulfide minerals of copper, lead, and.Aug 15, 1. introduction. the gravity and dense medium separation processes are widely used for beneficiating coarse coal particles (+500 μm), while the froth flotation is the most efficient process for cleaning fine coal (−500 μm) (laskowski, ).flotation columns are superior to conventional mechanical cells in cleaning fine coal because of having a deeper froth as well as a froth washing.
