The APT TriFloat is an exciting new product to enter the mineral processing world, and promises to offer a better processing option, particularly for the medium and small scale operators who are often overlooked by conventional mineral processing technology providers.

  • Flotation system is based around a group of 6 float cells arranged in a circular tank, each individual cell fitted with impellers, air spargers and froth launders.

  • Host of benefits in the design; better mixing in slurry applications, resulting in greater efficiency for reactions and a greater uniformity within the tank. This results in fast flotation kinetics and better recoveries over conventional systems. 

  • The cells can be arranged in various configurations depending on the mineral, throughput and float characteristics of the operation, allowing a TriFloat tank to be used as a complete rougher, cleaner and scavenger system, or for any portion of this circuit. 

  • The Trifloat system can be used on sulphide, oxide or silicate minerals, and is particularly suited to high-yield flotation circuits, such as graphite recovery.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Currently, continuous operation Trifloat plants are available for small scale operations up to 1tph, and laboratory tests on bench scale unit cells are also available.
