SlamJet Spargers for Column Flotation (No replies)

2 months ago
engwayu 2 months ago

I am designing a laboratory pilot scale column flotation cell to be used for testing different mineral systems by flotation. I am considering using a jetting air sparging system to mimic industrial practice. I am leaning toward Eriez's SlamJet system as they claim it is used in many flotation operations. Indeed, it is mentioned in literature I have reviewed so far, mainly academic references. I have not actually found discussions on it by any mine operators. Which operators are using Eriez's SlamJet Sparger system or similar Jetting systems? What are some of the typical challenges they encounter with this system for air injection into the columns? And what approaches do they take to mitigate these shortcomings?
