flotation column controls

Column flotation simulation and control: An overview

May 01, 2009 Column flotation control is often seen as a problem that cannot be handled by standard feedback control techniques. Such a vision certainly put a curb on a major breakthrough in column control. Most of column flotation control issues are instrumentation matters, related to the lack of commercial sensors to monitor key process variables.

Redox control in a pilot flotation column ScienceDirect

Jan 01, 1996 Abstract. Results from pilot-column flotation tests on a lead-zinc ore show that it is possible to control the redox potential of the column pulp by varying the oxygen activity of the flotation gas fed to the spargers. As a result, the process changes so that the fine zinc minerals are more actively floating in an oxidising environment, at the

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.
