Gas dispersion measurements in flotation cells

 · 1.. Gas dispersion sensorsGas dispersion is the collective term for superficial gas (air) velocity (or gas rate, volumetric air flow rate per unit cross-sectional area of cell, J g), gas-holdup (volumetric fraction of gas in a gas–slurry mix, ε g), and bubble size distribution (D b).The sensors and devices we have used to measure these variables in flotation machines have been described in ...

1 Froth Flotation – Fundamental Principles

Once the particles are rendered hydrophobic, they must be brought in contact with gas bubbles so that the bubbles can attach to the surface. If the bubbles and surfaces never come in contact, then no flotation can occur. Contact between particles and bubbles can be accomplished in a flotation cell such as the one shown schematically in Figure 5.

What Are Column Flotation Cells?

 · The other type of flotation cells is a column cell. Column cells are tall round tanks that use compressed air to create air bubbles via spargers or cavitation tubes. These cells are used to perform mineral separations. Column cells do not use mechanical agitation (impellers). Mixing is achieved by the turbulence provided by the rising bubbles.

Gas Flotation

Induced Gas Flotation (IGF) is a water treatment process that clarifies wastewaters (or other waters) by the removal of suspended matter such as oil or solids. The removal is achieved by injecting gas bubbles into the water or wastewater in a flotation tank or basin. The small bubbles adhere to the suspended matter causing the suspended matter to float to the surface of the water where it may ...

WEMCO DEPURATOR Water Treatment | Schlumberger

All DEPURATOR units use the froth flotation process to remove oil and solids from produced water. The key component is the mechanical aeration assembly that constantly disperses gas bubbles into the produced water. The oil, solids, or both adhere to the bubbles and then rise with them to the surface of the cell, forming a froth.
