Flotation frothers, also known as flotation foaming agent, is an essential flotation agent for froth flotation. The role of flotation frothers is mainly to produce a large amount of foam in the pulp, so that the available minerals are effectively enriched at the interface between air and water to create the conditions required for flotation process.The quality of flotation frothers directly affects the efficiency of mineral froth flotation.
Xanthate, as the flotation collector with strong collection effect, is mainly used to enhance the hydrophobicity of the mineral surface to meet the requirements of flotation. Xanthate is commonly used in the flotation process of sulfide minerals.
There are many methods for preparing flotation reagents. With different preparation methods, the dosage and effect of the same flotation reagents are also very different. Proper preparation before using will play an important role in improving the efficacy of the flotation reagent.
