table flotation

table flotation

[′tā·bəl flō‚tā·shən]
(mining engineering)
A flotation process in which a slurry of ore is fed to a shaking table where flotable particles become glomerules, held together by minute air bubbles and edge adhesion; the glomerules roll across the table and are discharged nearly opposite the feed end; the process is helped by jets of low-pressure air.
