Flotation Tester

Flotation is used in gold, copper, lead, zinc, and coal mining to recover fine mineral particles from ore slurry. This technique involves filling the slurry into a frothing solution to separate the particles. Due to their surface tension some particles float to the top with the air bubbles where they can be extracted; fragments which still contain large amounts of ore sink to the bottom of the tank as so-called Tailings.
