Practical system for realtime on-plant flotation froth visual parameter extraction

Botha C.P. ; Weber D.M. ; van Olst M. ; Moolman D.W. (1999)


In plants where froth flotation is utilized to extract minerals from mined ore, the visual interpretation of the froth surface can be used to optimize the flotation process, thus yielding a more efficient extraction. We present a computer-based system that is able to extract a wide range of on-line static and dynamic visual parameters from the froth surface. The system has been installed in several refineries and performs well in both laboratory and industrial environments.
