Froth flotation is a process that selectively separates materials based upon whether they are water repelling (hydrophobic) or have an affinity for water (hydrophilic). Importantly, the word flotation is also used in the literature to describe the process in density separation in which lighter microplastics float to the surface of a salt solution.
Froth flotation is a process for selectively separating hydrophobic materials from hydrophilic.This is used in mineral processing, paper recycling and waste-water treatment industries. Historically this was first used in the mining industry, where it was one of the great enabling technologies of the 20th century.
Thomas Battle,. James McClelland, in Treatise on Process Metallurgy: Industrial Processes, 2014. 126.96.36.199.2.2.1 Froth Flotation. The froth flotation process is more than a century old and was developed over a long period of time (8).It takes advantage of the surface chemistry of fine particles—if one particle’s surface is hydrophobic and another is hydrophilic, upon generation of air.To start with I will give you a simplified description of how selective froth flotation works, lets start over again with a description of the equipment and why it works. When the grinding circuit is finished with the ore it will be ground very fine and the density of the slurry will be between 30% to 45% solids. This is very important because the slurry will be treated chemically and air will.Froth Floatation Process. which cause the sulphide ore particles to stick with the oil and rise to the surface in the form of froth. The gangue particles being heavier remain behind at the bottom of water tank. The froth is separated and concentrated sulphide ore is obtained from it.
Froth floatation 1. Froth FloatationPresented By:Gulfam Hussain 2. Introduction Floatation is an extractive process where variousminerals can be selectively extracted. Flotation is a selective process and can be used toachieve specific separations from complex ores. For example, in poly-metal ores such as Pb-Zn-Cu, floatation allows separate extraction of Pb, Cuand Zn.Read More
Froth Flotation Charles Kubach, Mine-Engineer.Com The process of froth flotation is generally described as a physical-chemical action, where a mineral particle is attracted to, and attaches itself to the surface of a bubble, and is transported to the surface of a cell, where it overflows into a discharge launder, usually with the assistance of paddles, rotating in the direction of the launder.Read More

Froth flotation application Industries: Froth flotation application Industries Mining-the froth flotation process is used for the extraction of gold from gold ore, separation of sulfides, carbonates and oxides. Coal and phosphates are also upgraded by flotation technique.Read More
Froth flotation, separation of minerals differing little in density but greatly in wettability by surfactants that stabilize a froth formed on the surface of an agitated suspension of the minerals in water. See flotation. This article was most recently revised and updated by Erik Gregersen, Senior Editor.Read More
Flotation is widely used to concentrate copper, lead, and zinc minerals, which commonly accompany one another in their ores. Many complex ore mixtures formerly of little value have become major sources of certain metals by means of the flotation process. This article was most recently revised and updated by Chelsey Parrott-Sheffer, Research Editor.Read More

Challenge Description Froth cameras have become a common technology in flotation circuits to collect key performance data in the minerals processing industry. The information they collect can be used to optimize circuit performance and metal recovery through measurement of variables such as bubble size, froth depth and froth velocity.Read More
