Modelling for froth flotation control: A review

Advanced flotation controllers based on froth image analysis have been developed in recent years. Machine vision can, for example, determine some characteristics of the froth surface at the top of a flotation cell, such as the number of bubbles, bubble size, bubble shape, density, speed and stability (Fu and Aldrich, 2019).

Froth Flotation Metallurgist & Mineral Processing Engineer

Froth flotation is one of the most versatile and flexible of all mineral separation processes. Reasonable results are fairly easy to obtain but outstanding performance from a circuit requires constant attention and good understanding of the process and ore. Some of the variables that affect the operation and control of a flotation process are

The Importance of pH in Flotation

In flotation, pH control is a vital method to control selective mineral separation. A standard depressant that is used is an Alkali. An Alkali is any substance that when mixed with Acid will neutralize each other and form a new chemical substance called a BASE. This is very important. The ore may be either alkaline or Acidic. To have a positive control over flotation, it is necessary to be

Model Predictive Control for Froth Flotation Plants

Most of the flotation cells are equipped with sensors for measurements for froth level thickness and air rate. Existing Control Automatic low-level control is used for the regulation of the froth levels using the froth level sensors and the valves at the tailings ports. However, manual control of the plant is
