General Dimensions

Typically, columns range in height from 6 to 15 m. This height is dictated by the dimensions of the different zones within the column but is most influenced by the collection zone height.

Column cross-sections are usually round or rectangular. Cylindrical columns do not have special flow conditions at the corners. They, therefore, usually have a more uniform air and feed distribution, less tank weight due to the self-supporting nature of the structure and less wall area per unit operating volume. Rectangular columns use floor space more efficiently and are easier to baffle. The cross-sectional area is usually constant throughout the vessel and is determined by carrying capacity and residence time considerations in the collection and froth zones. Typical industrial cell cross-sectional areas range from less than 1 m2 to more than 12 m2.
