Development and scale-up of large flotation cells

Mining Engineering, 2000, Vol. 52, No. 3, pp. 11-16
Arbiter, Nathaniel


ABSTRACT:
Flotation’s earliest patent was issued in 1860. However, the process was first applied commercially in Australia until 1904, and in Montana in 1911. Major advances followed both in reagent treatment and in cell design, with resulting process improvements. Mechanical cells have seen the widest use and with the major increases in plant capacities (Fig. 1) their volumes have also increased (Fig. 2).
