Using JKTech’s unique flotation process evaluation and optimisation methodology, our experts aim to increase your recovery and final concentrate grade.
JKTech and its partners have strived to develop a methodology so that optimisation of flotation conditions can be carried out without the risk of extensive plant trials, which even if carried out carefully are often hard to interpret due to varying feed properties and other poorly controlled inputs.
The JKTech flotation consulting team comprises highly skilled specialists with expertise in:
- Flotation process benchmarking
- Flotation process training
- Flotation modelling and simulation
- Design and optimisation of flotation circuits
Our flotation consultants use JKSimFloat, JKTech’s own flotation circuit simulation software. JKSimFloat encapsulates over 40 years of research conducted by JKTech and its research partners and is continually updated in light of new findings in flotation research.
Since 2002, the JKTech flotation team has applied JKTech's flotation evaluation methodology to over 25 mining operations throughout the world with many of our clients publicly claiming great success as a result.
Flotation Health-Check - A Targeted Approach
A Flotation Health-Check is a cost-effective, high-reward process whereby a JKTech expert will test, asses and diagnose the current performance of a plant. Unlike a full flotation survey which provides a comprehensive service that incorporates a complete site survey of all cells, mass balancing, assay and flotation modelling using JKSimFloat, the ‘health-check’ is a more targeted approach, designed specifically to address areas of concern.
- Improvements in concentrate grade and recovery
- Reduction in operating costs
- Recommendations for optimum circuit configuration
