**FLOTATION KINETICS A flotation model is similar to chemical kinetics**

dN/dt =-k1 N1a- k2 N2b N - species (1 and 2) concentration t- time k - rate constant(s) a, b – process order -negative sign indicates that the concentration is diminishing due to the loss of particles being floated. -exponents a and b signify the order of the process Since flotation seems to depend only on particles concentration dN/dt =-k1 N1a

**Flotation kinetics models**

Relation Classic first order = [1 – exp (–k1t)] Modified first order = {1 – 1/(k2t)[1 – exp (–k2t)]} For reactor with ideal mixing = [1 – 1/(1 + t/k3)]* Modified for gas–solid adsorption = k4t/(1 + k4t)* Kinetics of second order = ()2 k5t/(1 + k5t) Modified second order = {1 – [ln (1 + k6t)]/(k6t)} Two rate constants = [1– { exp (–k7t) + (1 – ) exp(–k8t)} Distributed rate constants = [1 – exp(–kt) f (k, 0) dk] * Equivalent models because k3 = 1/k4. – flotation recovery after time t, – maximum recovery, – fraction of particles having lower flotation rate constant, k7, k – flotation rate constant.

**Theoretical shape of the separation data in the Fuerstenau plot**

4 * 7 9 Remeber: for characterizing separation results we need either two parameter or a law governing separation and then you can use one parameter which can be called selectivity as in these plots selectivity k 13 *for a suitable equation see previous slide (more plots in A.
