Role of Characterisation in Mineral Seperation by Froth Flotation

Biswas, A K (1998) Role of Characterisation in Mineral Seperation by Froth Flotation. In: Workshop on Froth Flotation: Recent Trends, September 22-24,1998, RRL Bhubaneswar.



The paper emphasises the rationale behind characterisation in mineral separation by froth flotation . Inspite of the vital role of characterisation in mineral engineering, the entrire global effort in this area is weak. Without adeq-uate characterisation one can not understand the system under consideration and the reproducibility of the data collected in an incompletedly characterised system will be always questionable. The importance of characterisation in the context of froth flotation has been discussed under six headings namely, solid phase, aqueous phase including solutes, gas or the second liquid phase, the three kinds of interface & interline, flow & force parameters and end products. Exam-ples have been cited based on author's own work and also from literature.
