Improve flotation circuit performance through froth characteristics
Froth cameras have become a common technology in flotation circuits to collect key performance data in the minerals processing industry. The information they collect can be used to optimize circuit performance and metal recovery through measurement of variables such as bubble size, froth depth and froth velocity. Currently, very few of the actual parameters are used to make decisions while operating the circuit. The challenge is to determine what the optimum flotation conditions would be based on all the data measurements available.
