Froth flotation circuit design and basic testwork

Most flotation circuits include an initial stage of rougher flotation, followed by a scavenger stage of flotation. The objective of passing through the rougher and scavenger flotation circuits is to maximise recovery of the desired minerals into relatively low grade concentrates that may typically contain 5 15 weight percent of the ore feed, (directly related to ore grade).

Froth flotation

Froth flotation

Froth flotation is a process for selectively separating hydrophobic materials from hydrophilic. This is used in mineral processing, paper recycling and waste water treatment industries. Historically this was first used in the mining industry, where it was one of the great enabling technologies of the 20th century.

The bulk concentrate is subsequently conditioned with sodium hydroxide to achieve an approximate 11.5 pH and collector addition from which a lead concentrate is floated. The zinc concentrate is actually the tails from this bulk separation step. The flotation tailing is the zinc concentrate.

Cleaner flotation tailings is an intermediate product and is recycled within the flotation circuit. Many ores contain multiple valuable minerals that can be floated into separate concentrates. Examples would include a lead zinc ore, in which the lead and zinc minerals are recovered sequentially into separate concentrates.

The flotation process is carried out in equipments, which are interconnected in predetermined arrangements that allow dividing the outputs of the systems into metal concentrate and tailings flows. Since the desired separation cannot be achieved in a single stage, various coupled stages are used. This is termed a "flotation circuit".

Flotation separation and recovery of lead and zinc concentrates from ores containing galena (PbS) and sphalerite (ZnS) is well established and generally achieved quite effectively. Silver often provides highly significant economic value, if not the greatest value, with the silver most often associated with the galena mineralization which is fortuitous since smelters pay more for silver in lead vs. zinc concentrates.

Lead/Zinc Ore. The main difference in lead/zinc flotation is that zinc is usually depressed while lead (and copper) is floated. The tailing from the lead flotation circuit is the feed to the zinc circuit. The ability to selectively float the separate minerals depends on the ore, the chemicals, and other factors.
