Optimization Of The Flotation Plant

FLOTATION CONTROL & OPTIMISATION - MINTEK

Flotation is a complex process that is affected by a multitude of factors. These factors may be inherent in the circuit design, or in how the flotation plant is operated. The FloatStar suite of control modules utilises advanced process control to overcome design-related limitations and maximise circuit performance during operation. As far as possible, Mintek's control modules are designed to

A practical approach to plant-scale flotation optimization

plant-scale flotation optimization. The focus areas for flotation optimization were: Air rate Froth depth Frother Depressant Collector Circuit configuration. The current paper presents the work done on air rate, froth depth, frother, and depressant. Theory Air rate Air is a very important variable in flotation control and operation because it affects both the pulp and the froth phase. Vera et

Optimization of Flotation for the Reduction of Heavy

flotation are difficult to change in the industrial process e.g.: size of the flotation cells, impellers speed, retention time, variability of feed and others were kept constant. For optimization the variables selected were pH, concentration of collector and concentration of frother. The test results do not showed

A mathematical model was developed for the grinding and flotation section of Union Carbide's Bishop mill and this model was used to indicate how variations in grind, retention time, and calcite and fluorite content effects the mill capacity, tungsten units produced, and the grade and recovery of the scheelite concentrate. A model

Flotation Circuit - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

The objective of the flotation circuit used by the mining concentration plant in El Salvador is to obtain a concentrate rich in Cu and Mo. The influence of the input factors on the variability of the grade and recovery of Cu and Mo in the final concentrate is analyzed. The input factors to consider are the kinetic constants of each species in each stage, maximum recoveries of each species in

SIMULTANEOUS OPTIMIZATION OF FLOTATION COLUMN

Simultaneous optimization of flotation column performance using genetic evolutionary algorithm 877 Venter et al. (1997) proposed an approach from the field of GA for flow sheet design. The strength of the work was that circuits could be assembled with the GA approach. However, full process optimization of the assembled circuit remained elusive. Karr et al. (1996, 1997) used a combination of
