Flotation Cell Impeller Types

2016-4-20  Conical disk impellers are recommended for Unit Flotation Cells and applications such as treatment of dense pulp and coarse material. Diameters of all impellers have a definite relationship to cell sizes, thus insuring uniform circulation of the pulp.

Improving flotation energy efficiency by optimizing cell

2016-10-1  Results show that flotation rate in the collection zone and the fraction of the cell with higher turbulence increases as more of the power drawn by the impeller is dissipated as shear in the impeller-stator region (higher Power Number). This should promote higher collision rates and more efficient use of the energy imparted in the flotation cell.

Influence of flotation cell hydrodynamics on the flotation

2016-12-1  Power draw was measured in the flotation cell using a power meter while the cells were working under the designated test conditions. In the 5 L cell, tests were carried out at impeller speeds between 746 and 1570 rpm and in the 60 L cell between 450 and 750 rpm. In addition, power draw was measured at a range of air rates at these impeller speeds.

The development of a cavern model for mechanical flotation

2010-10-1  There was found to be a strong time dependent interaction between the flow generated by the impeller and the stator blades due to their proximity, making the geometry unsuitable for the steady-state MRF model (Tabor et al., 1996).It was also found that the MRF model underpredicted the power draw of the cell, since it is dependent on the relative positioning between the impeller and stator blades.
