The column flotation cell is widely used for beneficiation of coal fines and other minerals where recovery of the product is linked to the process kinetics which in turn depends on mixing characteristics of the cell. Present work is undertaken to study the effect of various process variables on liquid phase residence time distribution using coal fines. In addition with the help of published data a generalized correlation to predict the effect of various operating variables on column mixing characteristics has been developed. The correlation shows better fit than previously published correlations.
