Flotation Circuit Modelling
While much research is focused on the interaction of an ore with its chemical environment, an understanding of the interaction of an ore with its physical environment is vital in bridging the gap between flotation research and industrial practice.
There are four main objectives of this research programme:
- development of devices and procedures for the diagnostic performance evaluation of cells and circuits
- development of a methodology for modelling the performance of circuits for optimisation studies
- development of a methodology for modelling and scale-up of bench and pilot-scale tests for design studies
- development and delivery of technology outcomes in a form that can be used by industry.
