Integrated Optimisation of Grinding and Flotation

Thus, to optimise flotation recovery and grade it is usually best to grind to a fine size. This requirement needs to be balanced by the cost of grinding finer and the revenue that results from an increase in grinding throughput, which often results in a coarsening of the flotation feed.

(PDF) Establishing the Relationship between Grind

There are a number of flotation circuit methodologies emerging to predict flotation performance as a function of grind size. The objective of this paper is to present and review three of these techniques and test them using an experimental data set collected from an industrial grinding/flotation circuit.
