Slurry density automatic control system in an agitator for the stage of preparation to the flotation process

N.V. Osipova, D.V. Pipiya

The article describes the theoretical grounds of the flotation process. The main factors influencing the content of useful components in flotation products are listed. The flowsheet of the process of slurry agitation and the description of the slurry density control system equipment are also provided. A case study is described of automatic stabilizing of this characteristics under the disturbance effect caused by the instability of properties of ore slurry feed for flotation
