We are proud to announce that the following journal article, “Plant Trials of the MAXGen Flotation Mechanism in a Lead Flotation Circuit” has been published online in the respected Indian journal “Transactions of the Indian Institute of Metals”.
Full-text access to a view only version of the article can be found here: Plant Trials of the MAXGen Flotation Mechanism in a Lead Flotation Circuit.
The data presented in the article is based on the developmental activities carried out at the DELKOR laboratory in Bengaluru, India as well as the plant trials carried out by the DELKOR R&D team on the lead circuit at the Rampura-Agucha plant, owned and run by Hindustan Zinc Limited (HZL) in Rajasthan, India.
The article highlights various aspects of evaluating flotation performance, especially concerning a mechanism’s ability to influence matters, which is something that is not commonplace in current literature. More specifically, figures 6 to 8 in the article reveal a mechanism’s influence on the performance of the entire flotation circuit.
“I am very proud of the DELKOR team and our MAXGen mechanism, which is the result of advanced research, extensive bench scale test work, scale-up and industrial trials,” said Dr. B. Venkoba Rao, DELKOR Vice President – R&D, upon publishing of the journal article. “Incorporating our MAXGen mechanism will enable a mine owner or operator to achieve best-in-class metallurgical performance, combined with greater ease of maintenance and lower cost of ownership. The mechanism enables the generation of a swarm of air bubbles with optimum size distribution. A careful selection of a trade-off between agitation levels and bubble distribution facilitates the flotation of fine and coarse particles equally (especially relevant for the flotation of low-density minerals), whilst efficiently keeping solids in suspension, which in turn maximizes the probability of bubble-particle interaction.”
