Froth Flotation

A run-away is a frightening experience for a novice flotation operator. Froth begins to flow from the surface of the cells at such a rate that launder water sprays cannot break down the froth and it then begins to overflow the launder depositing on the sump floor. Even by dropping the cell level, the froth continues to flow and cannot be stopped.

Common Questions About Froth Flotation Process Technology

Apr 17, 2019  Froth flotation is the use of the physical and chemical properties of the surface of the ore, the use of chemical separation of useful ore. In the process of froth flotation, useful minerals are separated by floating them in the foams, and the way of keeping gangue minerals in the pulp is called positive flotation, while the way of floating gangue minerals in the foam is called reverse flotation.>
