Bubble–particle collision interaction in flotation

2015-5-20 · Although flotation is known for very long time, a systematic analysis of the governing sub-processes has attracted attention the last 50 years only. The main individual elementary steps of flotation are (a) collision of a solid particle with a bubble, (b) attachment of a particle to a bubble and (c) detachment of a particle from a bubble.

Experimental observations of bubble–particle

2020-6-1 · In high speed videos of a flotation cell, Ata and Jameson (2005) observed that in the presence of floatable solids, bubble clusters would form, held together by two or more particles that form bridges between bubbles. The collision of a particle with such a cluster would be substantially different from the interaction with an isolated bubble.

2019-9-1 · In industrial mineral flotation, recovery tends to be maximal for particle size somewhere in the range from 10 μm to 50 μm, as discussed by Trahar (1981), with the drop-off in recovery for fines being due to the decrease in the probability of collision with bubbles as particle size decreases. Changing the size of the bubbles and the flotation ...

Comparative evaluation of particle separation

2014-12-10 · Micro-sized carbon dioxide gas bubbles can be applied as alternatives to air bubbles in flotation separation processes, which can reduce CO 2 emissions as well as decrease energy consumption. CO 2 and air bubbles were used as particle collectors in the flotation process to investigate and compare the collision efficiency and particle separation characteristics.

In research on the particle–bubble collision process, due to the adsorption of surfactants and impurities (such as mineral particles, slime, etc.), most studies consider the bubble surface environment to be immobile. However, in the real situation of froth flotation, the nature of the bubble surface (degree of slip) is unknown. Mobile surface bubbles increase the critical thickness of the ...
