Direct Flotation Reactors providing the following benefits - Up to 50% Footprint Reduction - Reduced Capital Investment - Reduced Operating Cost - Up to 50% Power and 90% Air Savings - Reduced transportation costs - Less piping, wiring and smaller MCC's - Single level staging, no step height
The Direct Flotation Reactor (DFR) is a flotation cell that works on the principle of preventing the formation of a froth and froth slurry interface. Independent bubbles are removed from the collection zone in a gas phase/slurry phase. The flotation cell has a particle collection regime in the lower half of the vessel and the loaded bubbles are recovered at the top of the vessel. The complete unit is a pressurized system. The DFR has a very low footprint due to the absence of a froth phase, the mass pull does not dictate tank size and the installation is on a single level (elevation) with no step height between cells. Being a low air system, the DFR has enhanced selectivity and like the SFR has reduced power and air consumption. No mist, dust or off-gases as the system is entirely enclosed! The system performs equally well in both rougher and cleaning circuits with equivalent or better performance than conventional flotation technology.
