In mining the flotation is a process for separating minerals from gangue, the waste rock, by taking advantatge of differences in their hydrophobic. Differences between valuable minerals and waste gangue are increased through the use of surfactants and wetting agents in the flotation cell which are designed to be forced air fed and require a flotation air blower.
Crude ore is ground to a fine powder and mixed with water, frothing reagents, and collecting particles cling to the bubbles, which rise to form froth on the surface. The waste material (gangue) settles to the bottom. The froth is skimmed off, and the water and chemicals are distilled or otherwise removed, leaving a clean concentrate. The process, also called the froth flotation process, is used for a lot of minerals, especially silver.
Continental Industrie is supplying the most efficiency and secure blowers for the mining Industry, able to work under the most difficult climatic conditions, such as extreme temperatures or very high altitudes. Our typical Blowers configuration aloud the easy installation and maintenance without necessity of special heavy equipment.
Compared to other blowers technology, Continental Industrie Multistage Blowers deliver oil free air without pulsation, which guarantee a constant flow and pressure along the process. The combination between mechanical rotation of the rotor and the bubbling is creating a very efficient action in catching the mineral particles to obtain the concentrate.
En comparación con la tecnología de otros sopladores, Continental Industrie Multistage Blowers proporciona aire libre de aceite sin pulsación, lo que garantiza un flujo y presión constantes a lo largo del proceso. La combinación entre la rotación mecánica del rotor y el burbujeo está creando una acción muy eficiente en la captura de partículas minerales para obtener el concentrado.
