Abstract. As with all physical and chemical processes flotation is a rate process governed by kinetic parameters, which are determined by several factors including the chemistry of the mineral-water interface, particle-bubble collision efficiency, and the strength of attachment of particles to the bubbles.

SYNOPSIS. The effect of particle size on the flotation kinetics of a low-rank coal was compared using air bubbles and oily bubbles. Five kinetic models were applied to the data from the tests to derive the relationships between the flotation rate constant, the ultimate recovery, and the particle size fraction.

Flotation kinetics (from the Greek Kinētikós - driving) is studying the regularities of flotation process at the time, the rate and the flotation mechanism. Kinetics of flotation reflects the flotation results in variable states and is characterized by dependency of the recovery R of floatable mineral in concentrate from time t, i.e. R = f (t).It allows a quantitative description of …
