Method for enhancing selectivity and recovery in the fractional flotation of particles in a flotation column

Technology Area: Materials & Chemical

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: Froth flotation—one of the primary solid-solid separation processes for fine particles—has been widely practiced for a century in the mining industry for concentrating valuable minerals, metals, and coal. This is a method for increasing the recovery and grade of particles in the separation process.
