hello all

In the self aerated flotation machine, how How will adjust the speed impeller according to feeding rate of pulp?

for example, if pulp feeding rate is 1 ton/min, how to determine the speed of rotation of the impeller?

Hi Diman,

Below is an article outlining how the cell works, I am not a flotation expert but if you red through this you might come across some information that may help until someone more knowledgeable comes along.
