IOM3/AusIMM Joint Webinar - New methods of flotation process intensification and control

PD Hours
The Metallurgical Society and IOM3 invite you to join our webinar: 'New methods of flotation process intensification and control', presented by Liguang Wang.

About this event

Froth flotation as a particle separation process is widely used in primary and secondary materials processing.

Key challenges faced by many flotation operations include the low or slow recovery of the valuables from the feed stream and lack of tools to stabilize the flotation process at the desired level of efficiency.

We have explored novel approaches (e.g., oscillatory air supply and acoustic stabilization of froth) to improve flotation recovery and throughput and have developed advanced tools for real-time monitoring of critical parameters affecting flotation efficiency. Some of these innovations have achieved successful industrial demonstrations.

This webinar will introduce these methods and demonstrate how to use them.
