Flotation cells

A tough mix for component maintenance

Separating minerals in a froth floatation cell is a particularly corrosive, difficult-to-maintain operation.

While the mixture of slurry, surfactant, water, air and froth in a given process varies, the ultimate effect on the slowly rotating rake and its related components is too often the same: failed seals and bearings, plus unplanned downtime and lost productivity.
