:: Glencore Technology Introduce Accurate Online Flotation Calculator


Glencore Technology have introduced the first accurate online calculator for estimating the required Cell installation for a given flotation circuit. The result shows what Jameson Cell installation is needed to deliver any given target concentrate.

The online calculator, available for free, takes key parameters like commodity and cell duty to decide what calculations are needed. Then itís remarkably thorough as it executes them.

It takes specific feed and concentrate grades, recovery targets and percentages of solids and it builds each stage through roughers, cleaners and recleaners.

The result is a powerful indicator of what the recommendation could contribute to a flotation circuit and to the downstream flowsheet. It reveals what type of Jameson Cells would deliver the outcome and how many bubble-generating downcomers would be required.

While it canít serve as a specification without human problem-solving, it can help direct information-gathering, planning and show whatís possible.

Virginia Lawson, Jameson Cellís Technology Manager, says, ďThis is the first time an accurate online estimation tool has been delivered to the market, and itís incredibly insightful. I think many companies have been coy to share this depth of information, but thereís no loss provided the indicator is meaningful.Ē

The online calculator can be found at the Jameson Cell website, at www.jamesoncell.com/en/downloads/Pages/JamesonCellOnlineCalculator.aspx
