Older plants are typically equipped with a large number of cells with relatively small volumes, meaning that metallurgical performance is far from optimal. Furthermore, operations need flexibility over time due to the variation in head grades, and this could require changes in both the capacity and flotation duty of some cells.
Our flotation cell replacement can solve these challenges. The redesigned circuit will deliver optimized cell volume and size, froth carry rate, and residence time. Outotec TankCell units offer superior flotation performance and are designed to maximize the customer's return on investment, with low lifetime operating costs, low maintenance requirements, and high reliability.
New tool helps estimate the value of flotation cell replacement
Feasibility evaluation of flotation circuit modernization has become a lot easier now thanks to a new value calculator developed by us. The tool provides a fast and effective way to evaluate how much operating costs can decrease and what are the monetary values of gained process improvements by replacing aging flotation cells with Outotec TankCell® technology.
