FLOTATION: Learn how coarse particle flotation improves traditional processing

DELTA, BC –  Eriez Flotation Division, an innovator in the mineral processing industry, has published a new brochure titled, “This Changes Everything!” The literature explains how coarse particle flotation (CPF) technology can increase mill throughput by as much as 15% to 20% while reducing energy and media consumption and providing a coarse tailings stream, without a loss in mineral recovery.

Eriez Flotation Division spells out the benefits of coarse particle floatation.

The brochure offers a detailed timeline of the development of the HydroFloat separator. Results are presented from early phosphate studies in 1997 to more recent sulfide evaluations which have shown that as little as 1% surface expression is required for nearly complete recovery of coarse particles. It goes on to highlight the major benefits of coarse particle flotation which include reduced energy and media consumption, greater mill throughput, increased copper recovery, coarser tailings and improved water recovery. A 3D product rendering and overview of the HydroFloat’s principle of operation are also included.

As part of its commitment to advancing the mineral processing industry, Eriez provides a wide array of valuable resources to customers. To access brochures and white papers from Eriez Flotation Division, visit
