Volumetric Feed Rate

The volumetric feed rate determines the vessel retention time and strongly influences vessel mixing. An increase in superficial suspension velocity results in lower gas limits as flooding will occur at lower gas rates and increases the size of microbubbles which become entrained by downward flow to the underflow. However, higher slurry velocities also decrease the negative influence of mixing on grade and recovery (higher Peclet number) and lessen the retention time difference between Rne and coarse particles due to the settling. Typically, superRcial feed velocity is 0.5-1.3 cm s-1.

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.
