froth flotation process oscillation

Detection and analysis of oscillations in a mineral ...

2010-1-1  In a flotation cell, slurry is mixed with air bubbles that rise to the surface and form a froth layer. Because of the flotation chemicals added to the slurry, the specific mineral particles attach to the rising bubbles and are carried with the froth over the edge of the cell as a concentrate flow.

Fuzzy association rule-based set-point adaptive ...

2020-3-5  Abstract. Froth flotation is a complicated process which is difficult to establish its first-principle model. Due to the fluctuations in the grade of raw ore, adaptively adjusting the set-points is extremely important in the flotation process. The inappropriate set-points easily lead to the instability of the process.

2018-3-20  Note that froth zone recovery is a term describing the process of true flotation in which the mineral particles are transported to the froth phase by attaching to bubbles rather than entrainment . The measurement of froth recovery would be affected by any particles entering the concentrate or the drop back via entrainment; hence, the washwater rate was controlled at 1.28 l/min, at which only a

Flotation stabilization and optimization - SAIMM

2009-8-26  The control of flotation plants is by no means trivial. Flotation is one of the most interactive minerals’ processing operations. The interactive nature of flotation circuits results in oscillations of levels and hence of grades and recoveries. Also, poor level setpoint tracking and disturbances have negative influences on grades and recoveries.
