Characterizing flotation response [electronic resource] : a theoretical and experimental comparison of techniques /

by Randolph, John Michael.

Abstract (Summary)
Over the past 40 years, several procedures have been proposed forcharacterizing ideal flotation behavior. These procedures, known as release or tree analysis, generally involve multi-stage flotation in batch, laboratory flotation cells using various combinations of rougher, cleaner, and scavenger configurations. Although some of these procedures have been experimentally compared, there remains considerable controversy as to which approach best approximates theideal flotation response. In this investigation, modeling and simulation al studies to compare three procedures commonly used for characterizing flotation behavior. These procedures include timed release analysis, simplified release analysis, and tree analysis.
