minerals engineering international online commoditiescpt have recently transported the first of flotation column cells to the salobo metais copper project and at almost 400 m 3, are the worlds largest flotation cells. vale awarded cpt, a multimillion dollar contract for the supply fourteen flotation columns complete with sparging systems and instrumentation for their salobo copper project.new technology and applications for flotation throughthe efd product line consists of column flotation cells and sparging systems, and other hydraulic separation systems. eriez acquired much of its flotation technology through the acquisition of canadian process technologies (cpt) in 07.column flotation sgscolumn flotation, covering pilot testing and scaleup, circuit design of selected applications, and instrumentation and control. we begin with a description of the key features and concepts of column flotation. key features and concepts . a schematic of a flotation column is shown in figure 1. industrial flotation columns are 6 m in height1 froth flotation fundamental principlesno flotation can occur. contact between particles and bubbles can be accomplished in a flotation cell such as the one shown schematically in figure 5. figure 5 simplified schematic of a conventional flotation cell. the rotor draws slurry through the stator and expels it to the sides, creating a suction that draws air down the shaft of the stator.
