on the performance of a column flotation cell. The parameters that were found to have the

most significant influence included column length/diameter ratio, aeration rate, feed rate,

feed solids content, and pulp bubble size. It was also found that limitations arising from

the carrying capacity of the froth phase can greatly impact the performance of large-scale

flotation columns. It is believed that this simulator will be useful for the design, control,

optimization and scale-up of column flotation.
