Flotation and Flocculation - From Fundamentals to Applications
Flotation and Flocculation deals with cutting-edge research in the science and engineering of two of the world's key separation processes. Flotation and flocculation underpin the key material supply chains for technologies that are central to minerals, fuel cells, ceramics, telecommunications, waste removal/recycling processes and many other industries. This book captures and sum menses the key outcomes of the International Workshop on Flotation and Flocculation held in Hawaii, July 2002. The participants included some of the most pre-eminent experts in this field throughout industry and academia. The organisers were Professor John Ralston, (chair), University of South Australia, Professor Jan Miller, University of Utah and Professor Jorge Rubio, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul.
Over the last decade there have been major scientific advances in understanding the chemistry and physics of bubble and particle surfaces, modelling bubble-particle encounter processes in various hydrodynamic regimes, and predicting the interaction behaviour of polymers with particle surfaces. These advances have taken place alongside major engineering investigations of the performance and design of industrial flotation/flocculation cells.
This book is highly focused, with transcripts of discussion sessions aimed at identifying exactly how practical and workable models can be developed to reduce the present uncertainty inherent in these vital separation processes.
