(2010) have developed a semi-empirical model to calculate the height of caverns forming in non-Newtonian mineral slurries in a mechanical flotation cell
. Guida et al.
Grau and Heiskanen (2005) had previously found that the size distribution in a number of types of mechanical flotation cell
was well-described by a so-called 'upper limit distribution', also referred to as a three-parameter log-normal distribution, given by Mugele and Evans (1951).
In these comparative tests, the DO-3500 cell proved itself to be a state-of-the-art machine which is at the leading edge of pneumatic mechanical flotation cell
Similarly, on the equipment side, the basic nature of the very widely used mechanical flotation cell
was essentially also defined by 1960.
Finnish minerals and metals processing technology company Outokumpu Technology Oyj announced on Thursday (1 February) that it has received an order for three large mechanical flotation cells
from gold producer OceanGold in New Zealand.
Now part of the integrated Baker Process enterprise, Eimco Process Equipment has made several innovative improvements to its Wemco mechanical flotation cells
and Pyramid column flotation cells over the past years.
Grainger-Allen (1970) observed that air cavities formed at the rear face of impeller blades in laboratory mechanical flotation cells
. At low aeration rates, aerated cavities behind the blades of the Outokumpu rotor have been observed with the use of a high speed camera.
A total Jameson cell residence time of 2 minutes compares to the 45 minutes required by mechanical flotation cells
. The Jameson cell is operational or under installation throughout Australasia on Pb/Zn/ Cu/Ni and coal applications.
