recovery of fine particle in copper flotation

  • Coarse and Fine Particle Flotation Recovery

    In The Days of gravity concentration, the art of ore dressing developed on the cardinal principle of saving the values at as coarse a size as possible. Flowsheets were designed which featured an alternation of crushing and concentrating operations. Thus an ore might be crushed to ½ inch, jigged to yield a finished concentrate and a middling; the latter being recrushed to ¼ inch, Flotation technology For coarse and Fine particle recovery,Flotation technology For coarse and Fine particle recovery Eric Bain Wasmund, PhD, P.Eng global Managing director, eFd I Congreso Internacional a De Flotacion De Minerales lima, peru, aug 2014 this paper will discuss some of the current challenges associated with conventional froth flotation equipment, as well as solutions that can
