Flotation Machine

Flotation machine is the main equipment in the flotation process.Flotation machine is regulate the chemical and physical properties of selected mine and flotation medium,expanding the differences hydrophilicity between mineral and gangue,by using various agents such as: collecting agent and foaming agent, adjustment agent, etc.Then,make better separation and achieve the goal of improving recovery rate.
Basised on customer’ feedback,SBM designed the Flotation machine with world’s leading technology.Now there are many kinds of flotation machines, such as agitator flotation machine, pneumatic flotation machine and pneumatic- agitator flotation machine.Some is specially used for iron ore and some other large proportion minerals,the others is used in nonferrous metals, ferrous metal, and non-metallic minerals.Anyhow,Flotation machine are mainly used in mineral ore dressing plants, selecting the valuable mine from gangue.

Application of Flotation Machine

SBM Flotation machine are mainly used in mineral ore dressing,it has a wide application for nonferrous metals,ferrous metal,and non-metallic minerals.There are numerous mineral ores is suiteable for separation,such as,fluorite and talc, gold ore, copper ore, iron ore and zinc ore and so on.

Distinctive feature of Flotation Machine

  1. The capacity of air suction is large, the power consumption is low
  2. Every tank gas three functions of air suction, slurry suction and flotation simultaneously being unique in flotation return circuit.
  3. The circuit change is convenient for horizontal position without need for any supplementary equipment.
  4. Smaller diameter of impeller and lower power consumption which saves 30%-50% of power.
  5. The impeller works as a centrifugal pump, so as to make the solid particles suspending.
  6. Run with load, the structure is simple and have easily maintenance.
  7. Upper and lower double circulation of the ore pulp in a fixed way, which is conducive to the suspension of coarse grain minerals.

Working principle of Flotation Machine

Motor of the Flotation machine drives impeller rotating through belt and pulley,which lead to the centrifugal force.On the one hand,the machine inhaled enough air mixed with slurry, on the other hand, stirring the mixture of pulp and pharmaceutical. At the same time, refinement of the bubble,the particles adhere to the bubbles on the role of reagents and float to the slurry surface.So it the formation of mineralized froth layer and scraped by the scraper.
