The batch column flotation results presented here were previously published. These data, however, were important in establishing the conditions for optimum continuous column flotation of the Fish Creek fluorite ore. Batch column flotation tests were conducted on column length, feed injection location, tailing recirculation, froth depth, wash water additions, and particle size fractions.
Since the inception of flotation columns in the early 19608217s, column length has been a concern to commercial mineral processing plants anticipating installation and operation of flotation columns. A column flotation cell is free from violent agitation. Feed and tailings slurry flow rates and particle settling rates affect the retention time of the particles in the column.
The collection zone has its upper boundary at the feed injection port and extends downward to the base of the column. This zone must have sufficient length to provide adequate retention time for the settling particles to attach to the rising bubbles. Column length design theory is based on this concept. Additional column length must be included for the upper three column zones as prescribed by the particular mineral system needs. Most work backing this theory has been performed on copper-molybdenum separations.
The effect of column length variations on the fluorite ore was studied by shortening the column, while maintaining a constant ratio of each column zone within physical limitations of the equipment and observing grade and recovery fluctuations. As the column flotation cell was shortened, recoveries of fluorite decreased fig. B-1. Retention time was calculated for plug flow conditions based on the collection zone volume and tailings flow rate. Fluorite recovery decreased because particle retention time was not sufficient as the collection zone was shortened by decreasing the column length.
Fluorite grades increased with decreasing column length because only the particles with sufficient hydrophobicity to achieve bubble attachment were reported to the concentrate stream. As the column was shortened, the particle retention time decreased causing smaller fractions of the more liberated fluorite to be collected, while also reducing the amount of gangue that was either entrained or collected to the froth fig. B-2.
Tests were conducted to determine the effect of the vertical location of the feed slurry injection port on fluorite grade and recovery.
Fluorite recovery gradually decreased as the feed injection port was moved closer to the base of the column fig. B-3. In essence, feed injection location is directly linked to particle retention time in the collection zone of the column. As the feed injection location was moved towards the base of the column, the length of the collection zone decreased, reducing the particle retention time, and decreased fluorite recovery resulted fig. B-4.
Fluorite grade and recovery variations were investigated as a portion of the tailings stream was recirculated at different rates during column flotation. The tailings recirculation flow rates were converted to superficial pulp velocities based on plug flow conditions in the collection zone volume. The resultant trend is given in figure B-5.
Flotation cells used in coal preparation are either mechanically agitated or column flotation cells with no agitator.

Imhof et al. 2005 detailed the use of pneumatic flotation cells to treat a magnetic separation stream of a magnetite ore by reverse flotation to reduce the silica content of the concentrate to below 1.5. From laboratory testing, they claimed that the pneumatic cells performed better than either conventional mechanical cells or column cells.

Jan 01, 2020nbsp018332Unlike most of these studies, Norori-Mccormac et al. 2017 investigated the effects of particle size in a laboratory scale, continuously overflowing, mechanical flotation cell and used air recovery as the measure of froth stability . These results showed that the relationship between particle size and froth stability is not a simple one, but.
The concentrate obtained from a batch flotation cell changes in character with time as the particles floating change in size, grade and quantity. In the same way, the concentrate from the last few cells in a continuous bank is different from that removed from the earlier cells. Particles of the same mineral float at different rates due to different particle characteristics and cell conditions.
Flotation Company of Canada on moly cleaning at Norandas Les Mines Gasp233 Cienski and Coffin, 1981 Coffin and Miszczak, 1982. Today column flotation has become . an accepted means of froth flotation for a fairly broad range of applications, in particular the cleaning of sulfides copper, zinc, lead and molybdenite and.
The recovery of any particular mineral rises to an asymptotic value R which is generally less than 100. The rate of recovery at time t is given by the slope of the tangent to the curve at t, and the rate of recovery at time t1 is clearly greater than the rate at time t2. There is a direct relationship between the rate of flotation and the amount of floatable material remaining in the cell, that is.

The objective of hot flotation tests is to transfer process slurry properties to a laboratory scale flotation cell by collecting a test feed sample directly from a process stream. The main outcomes of hot flotation tests are the recoveries, grades and kinetics of the main minerals from a certain flotation stage.
