COLUMN FLOTATION. ABSTRACT. Industrial application of column flotation began in earnest in the early 1980’s, and is now accepted as a conventional application. For example, most of the world’s major copper producers use column flotation as the final stage of cleaning. In addition, the technology is common for final cleaning of zinc, lead and molybdenum sulfides, and for processing of iron ...

Froth Flotation of Iron Ores

02/01/2012· The practice of froth washing in direct flotation increases concentrate grades without significant recovery losses[59]. In the reverse flotation of iron ores, froth washing was found effective in reducing the loss of FINE iron oxide particles to froth. It was reported that the cost of installing a column flotation circuit is approximately 25% - 40% less than an equivalent flotation circuit of ...
