On 22nd Aug, 2018, Advantages and disadvantages of flotation and its adaptability.


Flotation is a highly efficient separation process. The development of various flotation reagents and their concrete application in production practices, as well as the new development of flotation technology, have greatly improved the flotation efficiency and expanded the application scope of flotation. Because of the increasing types of flotation equipment, the equipment is constantly updated and becoming larger and the scale of flotation plant is becoming larger and larger, and the ore handling capacity is increasing day by day. In addition, the development of flotation production and the application of modern test technology in flotation theory research have deepened people's understanding to many theoretical issues.           

According to statistics, the ore processed by flotation in the world accounts for more than 60%-70% of the total ore concentration, and there are more than 100 kinds of minerals to be collected. The lower limit of grain size of raw materials can reach 5-10 um.          

(1) advantages of flotation           

1) Wide application range and strong adaptability. It can be used in almost all kinds of non-ferrous metals, rare metals and non-metallic mineral sectors, and has been widely used in chemical industry, building materials, environmental protection, agriculture, medicine and other fields.           

2) The separation efficiency is high, and it is suitable for dealing with low grade and fine disseminated minerals.            

3) Conducive to the comprehensive recovery of mineral resources. The crude concentrate, middling or tailings obtained by other beneficiation methods can be further processed in order to improve concentrate grade, recovery rate and comprehensive recovery of useful components.          

(2) Inadequate flotation           

1) The use of various chemicals can cause environmental pollution.        

2) The finer grinding granularity is needed.           

3) High cost, many influencing factors and high technological requirements.
