Immediately surrounding this air pipe is the pulp recirculation well which also leads to the open throat of the impeller. Air entering the cell is forced through the vertical curtain of re-circulating pulp and thus a positive airpulp mixing occurs in the eye of the impeller. This mixture is then subjected to the impeller and is expelled against the diffuser blades, which further mix and shear the air and pulp. The fluidizing action of vertical recirculation greatly minimizes the dense sands zone at the base of the cell and this also gives reduced interference to the pulp-air mixture as it...

Shallow flotation in deep cells Above are illustrations of three flotation cells. Intense agitation and aeration occur in the mixing zone at the bottom of the cell. This mixing or vertical recirculation zone provides highly effective retention volume. It is within this portion of the flotation cell that intimate contact of the conditioned pulp and controlled air is made. The re-circulating pulp to the top of the pulp recirculation lifts the mineralized air bubbles hydraulically well. Here a calm separation zone is created. It permits floatable minerals to separate from those, which will not...
