mineral separation froth flotation

1 Froth Flotation – Fundamental Principles

2009-8-27  The basis of froth flotation is the difference in wettabilities of different minerals. Particles range from those that are easily wettable by water (hydrophilic) to those that are water-repellent (hydrophobic). If a mixture of hydrophobic and hydrophilic particles are suspended in water, and air is bubbled through the suspension, then the hydrophobic particles will tend to attach to the air bubbles and float to the surface, as shown in Figure 3. The froth layer that forms on the surface will then be heavily loaded with they hydrophobic mineral,

Froth flotation is the most widely used phosphate ore separation process. Because of the nature of the phosphate ore, such as mineral types and content, disseminated particle size, its separation difficulty and flotation types varies. Phosphate ore is divided into siliceous phosphorite, calcareous phosphorite, and siliceous phosphorite according to the chemical composition of the minerals.The froth flotation types

Froth Flotation Process - Detailed Explanation With ...

Flotation is the process of separation of beneficial minerals from a mixture by creating froth on which minerals separate out. This method of froth floatation is a method of mineral processing in which different minerals are separated selectively. Such ores containing multiple metals such as lead, copper and zinc can be selectively extracted by using froth floatation.
