Abstract
A complete understanding of the flotation process in columns is necessary for establishing their design and operational basis and for demonstrating the potential of separation improvements that can be achieved. A research program directed toward an experimental and theoretical investigation of the processing of mineral fines by column flotation is currently underway. Specific aspects of the research program include (1) establishing the range of particle sizes over which column flotation would be most effective, (2) determining the influence of operating variables and their relation to the mineral properties on the overall efficiency of flotation columns, and (3) identifying necessary improvements in flotation column design and investigating the effectiveness of the new design. Experiments were performed using glass beads in various size ranges, and the behavior of the column was evaluated in terms of air and water holdup profiles, particle concentration profile, and flotation recovery.
