Metso Outotec introduces complete Flotation Plant Units for maximized metallurgical performance

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on October 19, 2022, at 09:00 a.m. EEST

Metso Outotec is introducing yet another innovative plant concept, Flotation Plant Units, to its unique minerals processing portfolio. The solution provides unparalleled metallurgical performance by seamlessly integrating functional design with a comprehensive scope, leading to high operational reliability and a fast return on investment. Compared to the traditional delivery, Flotation Plant Units result in the earliest time-to-volume.

“In flotation, changing ore types can cause recovery losses, and poorly integrated plant equipment leads to underperformance. Maximizing overall performance and reliability requires in-depth understanding of the complex flotation circuit sizing. All these concerns have been taken into consideration in the design of the Metso Outotec modularized Flotation Plant Units to provide unmatched results. The plant units feature industry-leading technologies, which also include several Planet Positive solutions. The units consist of state-of-the-art flotation equipment, conditioners, froth handling systems, as well as automation and sophisticated services,” explains Tatu Miettinen, Product Manager, Flotation Islands at Metso Outotec.
