The cells are easy to operate, low on power and air consumption, and allow for a modular layout. The wide range of cell sizes up to 630 m3 enables a compact, economical, and efficient plant design without risk of short circuiting, even for todays high-tonnage operations.
TankCell flotation units are built to last. For instance, Outotec rotors and stators have proven to be the most wear-resistant available. The wide range of available cell sizes enables a compact, economical, and efficient plant design without risk of short circuiting, even for todays high-tonnage operations. Fewer units mean substantial savings in construction costs, piping, cables, instrumentation, and auxiliary equipment.
Mixing mechanism performance has a direct impact on the three key areas of flotation: metallurgical performance, energy consumption, and operating costs. The Outotec FloatForce mixing mechanism delivers measurable value in all of these areas. By improving flotation hydrodynamics and pumping performance at high air-dispersion rates, FloatForce enhances particle recovery in the flotation cell while also reducing power consumption and the risk of sanding.
Using a launder with the correct design and orientation for your specific application helps to ensure optimal metallurgical performance. We can design a froth managment solution that maximizes your flotation cell performance and gives you greater metallurgical control with the optimal lip length, froth area, and transportation distance for the specific cell duty, plus robustness for feed grade and capacity changes.

The flowsheet was based on laboratory tests wherein troublesome factors were eliminatedahead of design and construction. The flowsheet provides for unit arrangement of equipment and for added flexibility. Two-stage closed circuit crushing (with an apron feeder for control to the jaw crusher), provides ore for grinding circuit. Crushed material is conveyed to a Screen and the oversize is returned to the secondary cone crusher. The screened fraction drops to a reversible conveyor, thence to fine ore bins.
Adjustable stroke belt ore feeders regulate the feed to two 5 x 10 Steel Head Ball Mills in closed circuit with Cross-flow Classifiers. Each classifier discharge flows by gravity to two banks of 6 Cell No. 18 Sp. Sub-A Flotation Machines. The grind, 65 mesh is held as coarse as possible to reduce grinding costs and still attain maximum recovery. Each flotation section provides six cells for roughing and three cleaning stages with provisions for elimination of one or more stages for cleaning when type of ore permits (flexibility incorporated in Sub-A Machines).
The flotation concentrates are pumped to a regrind circuit to produce desired final size meeting specifications. The final ground concentrates are thickened and filtered. Filters are directly above concentrate storage bins.
The mill site near the mine is accessible to water, power, labor and supplies, and includes adequate space for expansion and tailings disposal. The topography makes gravity flow through the mill possible and allows for delivery of ore direct from mine cars to mill.
Equipment selected gives simplicity and flexibility in operation and allows for changes in tonnages and character of ore. Due to class of labor available, complicated controls and adjustments were eliminated where possible. The machinery selected and installed permits duplication of units for expansion.
As field welding was not available, bolted steel ore bins were installed. The machinery foundations, building foundations, retaining walls and floors are concrete. The flotation machines are mounted on low piers to allow for drainage. An operating platform of wood was installed between flotation machines to give clear working space. The flotation machine launders were designed to permit changes in cleaning stages without shut-downs or prolonged delays, and permits circuit adaptation to changes in ore characteristics. A tailings thickener permits partial reclaiming of water, in dry seasons.
The correct design of a milling plant can mean its success or failure when in operation, the difference between profit and loss. Maximum metallurgical results with low operating and maintenance costs requires thorough study and sound planning. Selection of equipment and construction features must be balanced with available finances and a minimum sacrifice in operating efficiency. Here is a typical small plant where proper design resulted in a successful operation.
This 75-ton, lead-zinc-gold-silver mill was based on a flowsheet developed through batch and continuous laboratory tests. These studies showed single stage crushing and grinding to 65 % minus 65 mesh was adequate for this operation. Tests indicated that over 70% of the gold, 40% of the silver and 60% of the lead was recoverable in the grinding circuit. Therefore Unit Cell and a Mineral Jig section were installed. Adequate flotation capacity to selectively float the lead and zinc was provided, together with a small concentrating table to visually show results of flotation. The zinc and lead concentrates are pumped v direct to a 4-foot by 4-disc Filter with two compartments. This filter was placed on top of the concentrate bin which location provides desirable operating room around the filter and could be seen from almostanywhere in the mill. The concentrate bins were of laminated wood constructionsturdy and inexpensive. Filtered concentrates drop directly into the bins.
Thickeners were eliminated due to initial installation expense and extra housing required because of climate. Low dilution, by keeping sprays in flotation launders to a minimum and ability of Vertical Pump to handle frothy pulps makes this possible.
The mill site was selected several miles from the mine at a point where water, power and tailing disposal area were available, and where it was accessible even during the heavy snow season. The site is on a natural slope, permitting gravity flow in the mill with minimum pumping requirements.
Equipment is arranged as compactly as possible without crowding and without sacrifice of working space, in order to keep the mill building to minimum size. This keeps capital investment low, and reduces heating costs during cold weather. The mill building, of wood construction with laminated wood roof trusses with one-quarter pitch, was covered with insulating material and corrugated sheet material. This construction was most suitable due to the climate and
low cost of lumber in the area. A small steam boiler and unit heaters were installed for heating. Mill and crushing buildings are on concrete foundations extending about four feet below the ground line. Concrete floors of 4 to 6 thick are sloped per foot, permitting slushing down with a hose.
Crushed ore conveyor is enclosed in a conveyorway for weather protection. Fine ore bin is housed within the mill building to prevent freezing. An inclined belt feeder with variable speed drive gains elevation to grinding mill. Feeder was designed with sloping hopper to reduce load on the belt of feed discharging from the bin.
Foundation for Ball Mill was made of reinforced concrete and cast in one section to prevent distortion and misalignment due to possible settlement or shifting of the foundation. Ball mill, unit flotation cell, jig, and classifier were arranged for easy access and operation. The ball mill was equipped with a spiral discharge screen to remove oversize material ahead of unit cell and jig. The 30 spiral classifier was equipped with a rotating motor-driven paddle to remove troublesome wood chips from classifier overflow screen.
The two six-cell No. 18 (2828) Sub-A Flotation Machines were elevated on timber bents with operating platforms between the machines; this gave space belowmachines for pipe lines, launders and concentrate pumps. Reagent feeders were grouped together above flotation machines and conditioners at elevation of filter floor for gravity flow of reagents, and for accessibility.
The mill control office located in the center of the mill, was designed with large windows so almost every machine in the mill could be seen. Operating floors most frequently used were kept as nearly as possible on the same level to reduce stair climbing for the operators. Mill was designed so two men per shift could handle this plant very well.
A gallery was provided in the trussed-roof section, the length of the building, for the installation of main electrical circuits, safety switches, and magnetic motor controls. This kept most of the electrical items away from splash and dirt. All wiring was selected oversize to reduce voltage drop, giving higher operating efficiency and reduced electrical maintenance. Totally enclosed motors were used for reduced maintenance. Push button start-stop controls were placed at the machines and in the mill control office, so that any machine could be controlled from either place.
A typical problem confronting a mining operation of moderate production is how to design a mill at a reasonable cost incorporating modern equipment and essential basic principles of materials handling with the minimum construction and mill costs.
The first step in mill design is the flowsheet based on reliable ore tests. The mill capacity and equipment sizes as shown has been selected as an example for treating 500-550 short tons of ore per 24 hours per day. Two-stage grinding is to all minus 65 mesh for an average ore. Sufficient flotation capacity is included for a medium to slow floating ore. Thickening and filter capacity is selected for a 10 to 1 ratio of concentration as would be the case when treating a 3% copper ore with the copper mineral being chalcopyrite. In such case it would be necessary to filter 50 to 55 tons of concentrates each day. The use of a mineral jig or flotation unit cell in the grinding circuit is recommended. A simple test in our laboratory can tell you whether a coarse product can be recovered easily in the mill circuit.
The general design will apply to other ores with slight modification. The arrangement provides for ultimate use of gravity flow as is noted by the absence of pumps and elevators. The basic machines in plan and elevation are shown along with a flowsheet of the crushing,grinding and mill recovery circuits.
Mine run ore is fed to the primary jaw crusher by a heavy duty apron ore feeder over a grizzly. Crushed ore from the primary crusher is fed over a vibrating screen ahead of the cone crusher to remove fines. The crushing plant is normally designed to crush the entire daily mill tonnage in one shift or, at the most, 2 shifts.
Two- stage grinding provides the grinding economies outlinedin DECO Bulletin B2-B13. In the wet grinding circuit, a rod mill takes the entire feed at and reduces it to approximately 14 to 20 mesh. This mill is normally operated in open circuit with the classifier and ball mill. Usually there is a power saving with this grinding arrangement and often a substantial saving in the cost of the entire mill can be effected by reducing to a minimum some of the requirements in the crushing plant due to this method.
The ground ore overflows the classifier at -65 mesh and approximately 25% solids and is shown being conditioned ahead of flotation. Two parallel banks of Sub-A Flotation Machines on the same floor level are shown for roughing, scavenging, cleaning and recleaning. This arrangement in the flotation circuit provides maximum flexibility in the flow of material, high grade selective concentrates, and low final tailings.
Normally 10 square feet of thickener area is provided for each ton of concentrates per 24 hours which gives reserve capacity to accommodate normal filter maintenance without shutting down the flotation circuit.
In thedesign of any milling operation, continuity of flow should be given first consideration and all weak links eliminated. The old saying an hours delay means no profits today is even more important in our modern milling circuits where labor costs are high.
Many typical design plans and flowsheets are available for your use. Templates of all basic machines, scaled to 1-foot in plan and elevation facilitate laying out these plants. Free tests are made by the Laboratory to check your grinding, thickening and filtering requirements.
