disadvantage of froth flotation

  • Some of the advantages of froth flotation are: 1. Almost all types of minerals can be separated by this process. 2. Surface properties can be controlled and altered by the flotation reagent. 3. This technique is highly appropriate for the separation of sulphide minerals. The main disadvantage of the froth flotation process is that this method is hi...

    What happens during froth flotation?During the froth flotation process, occurs the separation of several types of sulfides, carbonates and oxides, prior to further refinement. Phosphates and coal can also be purified by flotation technology. During the process, four things happen: Reagent conditioning happens in order to achieve hydrophobic surface charges on the desired particles
