Flotation for cell recovery from small volumes of yeast

Flotation or cell recovery in foams (proportion of the total cells in the medium transferred to the foam) and flotation efficiency (proportion of the cells transferred from an initial volume of medium equal to the residual volume after flotation) are functions of time, aeration rate, initial volume of medium, and initial concentration of cells. Cell recovery reached constant values (around 96

CFD MODEL OF A SELF-AERATING FLOTATION CELL

2006-11-20  Flotation is an important process in the minerals industry and most flotation is carried out using mechanically agitated cells ranging in volume up to 300 m3. Separation of the particles of valuable minerals from the ore is achieved when particles of the valuable minerals preferentially attach to air bubbles and are floated to the surface of the slurry via a froth layer. From the froth layer, the particles are removed by means of an overflow launder. The remainder of the slurry exits the cell through an outlet in the lower part of the cell. A class of the commonly used cells have air pumped into the slurry via a central shaft. The dispersion of air as fine bubbles for flotation is generated by a rotor-stator mechanism which also serves to mix the slurry and air bubbles. Various proprietary mechanisms are used in the minerals industry. Self-aerating flotation cells,
