Frothers for Enhanced Flotation Outcomes
Froth flotation chemistry can significantly impact the flotation process, from preventing bubble coalescence, to stabilizing bubble size and particle adhesion, to increasing bubble residence time and surface area flux. Today’s rapid froth flotation processes rely on alcohol- and polyglycol-based chemistries. When tailored properly, these frothers create ideal hydrodynamic conditions to maximize yields.
Solvay’s frothing agents for flotation include a wide range of alcohol-based, glycol-based and blended formulas to maximize the performance of all types of flotation systems. Our team of experts plays an essential role in evaluating flotation circuits to determine the optimal flotation chemicals scheme to optimize froth flotation.
