The first countercurrent column flotation device was designed and tested by Town and Flynn in 1919. Cross current pneumatic flotation machines were widely used in industry in 1920s and 1930s, but were later replaced by the impeller type flotation devices in mineral processing plants.

This is an overview of setting up and conducting a flotation rate test. The test is a means of determining the flotation characteristics of an ore. It is conducted in a laboratory scale cell usually with a volume of two point five litres. The intention is to generate relationships of cumulative recovery, mass pull and grade versus time and use these to evaluate the floatability of metal
Flash Flotation Cell Mineral Processing amp; Metallurgy
More profit can be earned by using the Flash Flotation Cell in the grinding Circuit. This machine has been designed especially for the recovery of floatable minerals at a coarse size as soon as the mineral is free; together with the finer sizes. Even though many ores require fine grinding to make the maximum recovery, most ores liberate a large percentage of the mineral values during the
CFD MODEL OF A SELF AERATING FLOTATION CELL P.T.L. KOH and M.P. SCHWARZ CSIRO Minerals, Clayton, Victoria 3169, AUSTRALIA ABSTRACT The effect of impeller speed on the air flow in a self aerated Denver laboratory flotation cell was investigated using computational modelling. Air is induced into the slurry by the impellers rotating action.
The powdered product of grinding the ore is fed into a series of tanks called flotation cells which are filled with a solution containing various oils capable of forming a froth. Air is pumped into each cell, the solution being agitated to bring froth of bubbles to the surface.
