Particles Size and Shape in Mineral Flotation

Interaction of gas bubbles with solid surfaces plays an important role in many areas of technology. Most significant is the role in particle separation of the flotation process. The essence of the separation is bubble attachment to the surface of hydrophobic particles, which leads to flotation due to the buoyancy of the particle/bubble aggregate.

what is the role of collectors in froth floatation

In froth flotation the effectiveness of an air bubble to adhere to a particle is based on how hydrophobic the particle is. Hydrophobic particles have an affinity to air bubbles, leading to adsorption. Collectors are the main additives used to improve particle surfaces.

Enhancing Fine Particle Recovery in Flotation and its

Fine particles are best floated with small bubbles, and hydrodynamic conditions inside a mechanical flotation cell are not suited for fine particle flotation. Flotation columns of various types yield better fine particle recovery because of more favourable conditions and smaller bubbles.

Critical raw materials (CRMs) are of primary importance for energy storage systems as needed for electromobility. Many mineral deposits which contain CRMs are low-grade ores. To liberate the CRMs, a grinding of the mineral ores to very fine sizes below 20 µm particle size is necessary. However, the present class of industrial flotation plants fail to extract such fine and ultrafine particles.

To enable these particles to attach, careful consideration of the chemistry of the pulp needs to be made. These considerations include the pH, Eh and the presence of flotation reagents. The pH is important as it changes the charge of the particles surface and the pH affects the chemisorption of collectors on the surface of the particles.

How to use "hydrophobic" in a sentence

Froth flotation is a process designed to separate hydrophobic particles selectively in an aqueous medium, in which gas bubbles are dispersed. Since it is moderately hydrophobic, it is said to readily remove organic and inorganic compounds in the presence of water. The basis of this effect is hydrophobic surface nanoprojections or nanofibers.
