  Modelling and predicting flotation froth stability
  Dr P Brito-Parada, Prof S Neethling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The performance of flotation cells is highly dependent on the behaviour of the froth phase. The phenomena taking place in the froth not only control the water that reports to the concentrate, and thus the entrainment of gangue material, but also have a significant impact on the overall recovery.
