Effect Of Height Of Flotation Column On Flow Field

Effect Of Height Of Flotation Column On Flow Field

When the lower column height‐to‐diameter ratio H 2 D increases from 1 to 4 it has no obvious effect on column flotation unit but does effect on the flow field of the cyclone flotation unit As the lower column height increases the upward overflow is prominent and the region becomes larger Peculiarly tangential velocity is large under too small lower column height like H 2 D = 1 but is bad.Flotation Column This study was performed on a laboratory scale flotation column built at FPInnovations Paprican [20] The column shown in Figure 1 has a 10 2 cm diameter and a height of 4 65 m The principle of the flotation column is simple.

Jan 20 2017 A preliminary study of column flotation monitoring process using electrical capacitance volume tomography (ECVT) was conducted ECVT was one of the monitoring systems which based on the capacitance measurement It was used to understand the phenomenon that occurs inside the column in a three dimensional (3 D) image A linear back projection (LBP) algorithm technique was used to.Column height the CFD literature on column flotation does not account for this phenomenon This could result in the under prediction of gas holdup particularly in cases where the available experimental measurements were taken near the top of the column For example Koh and Schwarz (2009) reported an average gas holdup of 0 176 for the whole.
