Almost all successful models of the flotation process have been based on the premise that flotation is a kinetic process. In this way a model can be formulated in terms of a rate of flotation which can be quantified in terms of some of the many chemical and physical factors that define the environment inside a flotation cell.
2.1 Modeling the flotation plant. In the literature, there are several models to describe the process of flotation. The general rate equation for this type of processPolat and Chander, 2000involves distribution functions for the residence time and the flotation kinetics constant.

Designing a new flotation process, or choosing the right equipment for an existing process, requires experience and a deep understanding of minerals processing and metallurgy. Our solutions are designed in our Engineering and R and D centers by experts specialized in minerals processing and technology development.
Flotation Cell To Separating Solids. Flotation involves the introduction of gas or air into the water to create a foam or froth which will scrub the solids from the liquid and carry them out with the foam the primary difference in flotation cells is the two ways of introducing the gas gas introduced into the bottom of a cell and dispersed into a water in the form of very fine
TankCell flotation units are built to last. For instance, Outotec rotors and stators have proven to be the most wear-resistant available. The wide range of available cell sizes enables a compact, economical, and efficient plant design without risk of short circuiting, even for today’s high-tonnage operations.
