Scale-up in froth flotation: A state-of-the-art review

The purpose of this review of scale-up in froth flotation is twofold: (i) to highlight and classify the studies that have been conducted on flotation scale-up, defining two sub-areas of study, namely “kinetic scale-up” and “design scale-up”, and (ii) to highlight the areas that require further research and better understanding for a more effective scale-up of flotation tanksFlotation Plant Scale Up From A Pilot Plant - Froth ,Flotation Plant Scale Up From A Pilot Plant (29 replies) Normal scale up path is Batch Test-Locked cycle test-pilot plant-full scale, the progression attempts to increasingly simulate the dynamics of a full scale plant including, contact stages (probability) air hold up, energy transfer, circulating loads etcFlotation Time Scale-up Factors - Laboratory to Plant,Using Laboratory bench-top float test results and their retention (flotation) time to scale-up to real life full scale plant time can be done using the following tables and examples How to select the proper scale-up factor takes experience and good data Figure 167 was used and seen in the a technical report for the Pebble Project in Alaska (Northern Dynasty Minerals)

(PDF) Scale-up in froth flotation: A state-of-the-art review

This review indicates that current scale-up rules governing the design of flotation tanks focus mainly on pulp zone kinetic parameters and neglect the effects on the froth zone, despite the Optimization of a Laboratory-Scale Froth Flotation Process ,Froth flotation is a universally accepted process for the beneficiation of coal fines However, the process variables, collector dosage, frother dosage, and pulp density need to be optimized for each coal In the present work, response surface methodology has been applied forFroth properties and entrainment in lab-scale flotation: A ,The lab-scale batch flotation of high-grade apatite ore leads to significant changes of pulp properties (Fig 11, Fig 12(a)) and froth properties (froth structure and froth stability) with time These changes are caused by the high mass pull which goes along with decreasing reagent and particle concentrations during the lab-scale flotation
