Outotec’s Flotation Cell Replacement Calculator Provides Fast Results

Aging, underperforming flotation equipment can have a huge impact on a plant's metallurgical performance, energy efficiency, and ultimately, its profitability. This can cause challenges in meeting operational targets due to low concentrate output from cells, while equipment breakdowns have a negative impact on availability and high spare parts costs affect operational profitability. Older plants are typically equipped with a large number of cells with relatively small volumes, meaning that metallurgical performance is far from optimal. Furthermore, operations need flexibility over time due to the variation in head grades, and this could require changes in both the capacity and flotation duty of some cells.
