Flash Flotation with Closed Circuit Grinding

2016-4-14  The reason why you need Flash Flotation in a Closed Grinding Circuit relates to “Recovering your mineral as soon as free” which has long been recognized in ore dressing practice. This not only applies to gravity treatment but also to flotation. For this application the Flash Flotation Cell was developed for use in the grinding circuit
