what is tail in froth flotation

What is Froth Flotation? - wiseGEEK. 17-12-2020 Froth flotation is a process using air bubbles to separate materials based on their relative affinity to water. Bubbles carry reagent and hydrophobic materials to the top of a tank where they can be removed. Froth flotation has been used for more than a century in mining operations to separate ...

1 Froth Flotation – Fundamental Principles

2009-8-27  1 Froth Flotation – Fundamental Principles Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then carried to the surface and
