Froth flotation is considered to be the most widely used method for ore beneficiation. In ore beneficiation, flotation is a process in which valuable minerals are separated from worthless material or other valuable minerals by inducing them to gather in and on the surface of a froth layer.

The froth of copperrich bubbles at the top of the tank is then skimmed off for further processing. The gangue sinks to the bottom of the tank to be removed or disposed of as mine tailings. The next stage after froth flotation is the thickening stage. The froth is poured into large tanks called thickeners.

Foam rich of solids produced during a flotation process. Flotation is a process where gas bubbles are injected at the bottom of a tank containing a mixture of a liquid and solid particles to separate the solid particles from the liquid. When the gas bubbles move along the liquid mixture, the solids particles stick to the surface of the bubbles.

When a microbubble flotation technique was employed to float Appalachian coal, it produced a cleaner coal product than conventional macrobubble flotation. A general kinetic model was proposed to represent the rate of flo173; tation of coal. For two Appalachian coals, the model successfully represented the flotation kinetics of uniformly sized coal.

It was thus early recognized that the bubbles of froth noticed in the wetconcentration operations were due to the aeration produced by violent agitation, resulting from mechanical implements moving rapidly in water. In these experiments a metallic froth or scum could be produced and recovered assaying 26 oz. silver, 30% lead, and 22% zinc.

Foam

Foam

Foam, in this case meaning quot;bubbly liquidquot;, is also produced as an oftenunwanted byproduct in the manufacture of various substances. For example, foam is a serious problem in the chemical industry, especially for biochemical processes. Many biological substances, for example proteins, easily create foam on agitation or aeration.

Froth flotation

Froth flotation

Overview

Before froth flotation can work, the ore to be treated is reduced to fine particles by crushing and grinding (a process known as comminution) so that the various minerals exist as physically separate grains. This process is known as liberation. The particle sizes are typically less than 0.1 mm (100 181;m), but sometimes sizes smaller than 710 181;m are required. There is a tendency for the liberation size of the minerals to decrease over time as the ore bodies with coarse mineral grains that can be separated at larger sizes a

froth layer. Particles that are retained in the froth are recovered at the lip of the froth weir at the edge of the flotation cell. The recovery of the froth is accomplished by the natural mobility of the froth which causes it to flow over the weir and the recovery is sometimes assisted by mechanical paddles.
