As your paper says

It is an Agitated Column...and agitation affects recovery.

This is like/similar to a recirculation column I think.

The recovery of fine pyrite using an agitated column cell was an investigation in the met lab. Nowadays, two of the main manufacturers of column cells provide columns equipped with recirculation pumps, which promote the collision of fine particles. This kind of column flotation cell are installed in different operations to improve the recovery of fine minerals (e.g. chalcopyrite, sphalerite). 

It important to perform tests to evaluate the performance. The mineralogical information is important too.
