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.
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.
