  author={Nickolaj Nikolayevich Rulyov},
The principal factors, which limit the rate and selectivity of flotation recovery of fine particles from water (microflotation), are discussed in terms of kinetic approach. It is shown both theoretically and experimentally that the efficiency of microflotation can be improved significantly over that of the conventional technologies by way of the hydrodynamic treatment of multi-phase mixture (water/particles/microbubbles) in the turbulent flow. The main principles of ‘turbulent microflotation… CONTINUE READING
