Initial Design Data

The feed transport fluid must be characterized in terms of liquid flow rate and chemical composition. Component solids or immiscible liquid flow rate, material composition and size distribution must also be known. In all cases, mean values, standard

deviations and design maxima and minima are required.

Test work must be done, or approximations made, to determine the flotation characteristics of the material to be separated, including rate constants and maximum recovery for all material and particle (droplet) size fractions. Process targets must be well understood, including the desired quality of products and recovery. Data error must be minimized since it directly impacts on the accuracy of the design scale-up.

Site-specific information is also required for final designs. This includes limitations in dimensions due to plant layout, civil engineering specifications, including such items as wind loading, earthquake considerations, supporting platforms and others.

Solar Panel Basics

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
