Froth Depth

The froth phase in a Jameson cell can be controlled as in conventional columns. Shallow froth depths (less than 200 mm) are used where high recovery is necessary and grade is of secondary importance, while deeper froths (up to 1 m) are employed to obtain maximum concentrate grade. Shallow froths result in significant entrainment of very fine ( < 10 |im) gangue mineral which accompany the pulp phase. With deeper froths, significant drainage of hydrophilic gangue will take place, producing a higher grade concentrate, and a higher percentage of solids in the concentrate. Under some circumstances, the addition of washwater to the froth will assist froth mobility, and assist an otherwise immobile froth to keep moving to the overflow lip.
