How to Process Lead-Zinc Ore by Gravity and Froth Flotation

Flotation process and equipment of lead-zinc ore In the beneficiation of lead-zinc ore, flotation is an important process. Mixing in mixing tank After the ground pulp is classified by the classifier, it enters the mixing tank for mixing. Control the slurry concentration at 25-35%, then add flotation agent to control the slurry pH value 9-11 and stir it for 6-15 min.

Electronic structure and flotation behavior of Ag-bearing

In this paper, the flotation behavior of Ag-bearing galena has been investigated by using ammonium dibutyl dithiophosphate (ADD), ethyl xanthate (EX) and diethyldithiocarbamate (DDC) as collector, respectively, and unlike that galena could still remain its floatability in high alkaline pulp by DDC, the Ag-bearing galena is much favorable of flotation in low alkaline pulp at pH value of 9.5 by ADD.

added to a galena system, the formation of lead chromate on the galena surface will occur. Depression is ascribed to the strong hydration of chromate adsorbed on the surface. 4.Cyanide as a depressant (CN ) Cyanide ion does not form a complex with lead ion at moderate concentrations. Hence it does not depress galena. Flotation of Chalcocite

The lead concentrates obtained toward the end of the second lead rougher flotation were examined by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The results showed that the lead-to-zinc atomic ratios on the surface are significantly higher than in the bulk, suggesting that the flotation of sphalerite is caused by the activation of the mineral by the lead ions present in the flotation pulp.
