Home Full portfolio Flotation Process Assessment Service
Lost recovery in the flotation process results in lost revenue. Mines now need to process more complex ores making the operation of flotation circuits more difficult. Our Flotation Process Assessment service helps identify the optimum feed size, cell design, and operational parameters to maximize recovery and revenue.

Features
Our four step approach
Our four step approach

STEP 1: PREPARATION OR ANALYSIS OF EXISTING STATISTICAL PLANT DATA INCLUDING:

  • Recovery
  • Grinding performance
  • Reagent doses
  • Operational parameters
  • Mineral characteristics

STEP 2: SAMPLING

  • Sampling is conducted on a focused flotation area
  • Samples are taken from the feed, tails, and concentrate
  • Process conditions are monitored in the control room​

STEP 3: HOT LAB FLOTATION TEST 

  • Hot flotation tests identify the potential of current ore
  • Metallurgical performance in the laboratory and plant are compared and further analyzed using our HSC chemistry software

STEP 4: REPORTING:

  • A report recommended solution, and value-adding process modifications are provided by our metallurgical experts​
