Abstract/Summary Analyzing, optimizing and designing flotation circuits using models and simulators have improved significantly over the last 15 years. Mineral flotation is now generally better understood through major advances in measuring and modeling the sub-processes within the flotation system. In addition, new and better methods have been derived to represent the floatability of particles as they move around a flotation circuit. A simulator has been developed that combines the effects of all of these sub-processes to predict the metallurgical performance of a flotation circuit. This paper presents an overview of the simulator, JKSimFloat V6.1PLUS, and its use in improving the industrial flotation plant performance. The application of the simulator at various operations is discussed with particular emphasis on the use of JKSimFloat V6.1PLUS in improving the flotation circuit performance.
