• Froth flotation - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Froth_flotation 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.
  • Froth Flotation Process - Mineral Processing & Metallurgy

    www.911metallurgist.com/blog/froth-flotation-process The froth flotation process was patented by E. L.Sulman, H. F. K. Pickard, and John Ballot in 1906, 19 years after the first cyanide process patents of MacArthur and the Forests. It was the result of the intelligent recognition of a remarkable phenomenon which occurred while they were experimenting with the Cattermole process.

    www.chem.mtu.edu/chem_eng/faculty/kawatra/Flotation_Fundamentals.pdf 1 Froth Flotation – Fundamental Principles Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then carried to the surface and

  • What is Froth Flotation? - wiseGEEK

    www.wisegeek.com/what-is-froth-flotation.htm Froth flotation is a process using air bubbles to separate materials based on their relative affinity to water. Bubbles carry reagent and hydrophobic materials to the top of a tank where they can be removed. Froth flotation has been used for more than a century in mining operations to separate ...
