Flotation

Metallurgy offers a variety of flotation tests and our dedicated team can assess suitability and recommend appropriate testwork.

At our metallurgical laboratory, bench-scale flotation testworks are conducted by using industry standard flotation cells. Benchmark tests are used to establish optimal grind size, reagent selection and float regime. Metallurgy has extensive flotation experience; from floating amenable ore deposits to more complex base metal sulphide ores. Our aim is to deliver the most effective and economic flotation solution to our clients.

Flotation services offered consist of;

  • Batch, bulk and continuous capability
  • Sulphide, Metal Oxide,Graphite, base metals
  • Pilot scale continuous flotation
  • Bench scale batch flotation
  • Flotation Kinetics Rate
  • Locked cycle flotation
  • Grind and Regrind
  • Reverse flotation
  • Deslime Flotation
  • Flash Flotation

The bench scale flotation tests can also target the recovery of industrial minerals such as Cassiterite, Potash, Phosphates, Talc, Barite, Coal, Resin-coal and Tar sands.

Locked Cycle Flotation Testing:

Locked cycle flotation tests can be undertaken to provide results and metallurgical performance data in a continuous circuit. In these tests, we investigate the recirculation of circuit water and intermediate mineral streams, until a steady state is achieved.
