flotation hydrodynamics and pumping performance at high air dispersion rates, FloatForce enhances particle recovery in the flotation cell while also reducing power consumption and the risk of sanding. Froth management solution Using a launder with the correct design and orientation for your specific application helps to ensure optimal
Table 11.11 shows the features of MAC flotation cell. Kadants MAC flotation cell deinking system uses air bubbles to float ink particles to the cell surface for removal from the recycled material. The latest generation of the MAC cell deinking system incorporates a patented bubble washing process to reduce power consumption and also fiber loss.
The shape of a mechanical flotation tank is essentially rectangular, U shaped, conical or cylindrical, according to the cell type and size. It is fitted with an impeller/rotor and stator/diffuser. Air enters into the device through a concentric pipe surrounding the impeller shaft either by self aspiration or aided by a compressor.
The flotation cells are designed for a variety of throughput requirements, ranging from small pilot sized cells with a diameter of 0.8m, processing 6 10 m 3 /h of feed; to cells with a diameter of 6.5m, handling feeds of 1500 m 3 /h. The flow rate is dependent on the feed pressure and rate of concentrate removal.
A mechanical Sotation cell essentially consists of a vessel ora tankRtted with an impeller or rotor.The impeller agitates the slurry to keep particles in sus pension, disperses air into Rne bubbles and provides an environment in the cell tank for interaction of bubbles and hydrophobic particles and their sub sequent attachment and therefore separation of valu able mineral particles from the undesired gangue mineral particles.
