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.
Flotation reagents are mainly used to regulate the floatability of minerals. The purpose of reasonably adding flotation reagents is to ensure that the optimum concentration of the flotation reagents is maintained in the pulp for maximum efficacy.
Flotation reagents refers to the agent that used in mineral flotation process, which can adjust the flotation behavior of minerals thus achieving a good effect of mineral separation.Currently using flotation reagents is the most flexible, effective, and convenient method of controlling flotation process.The commonly used flotation reagents can be mainly divided into three types according to their different working principles: flotation collectors, flotation frothers and flotation conditioners.
