The Sparging Factor - Improving the operating efficiency of flotation columns, leach tanks and other processes that depend on the generation of fine gas bubbles
In mineral flotation applications, Eriez Flotation SlamJet sparging systems promote the attachment and recovery of hydrophobic particles through the generation of a fine bubble dispersion that is evenly distributed across the flotation column. Eriez Flotation sparging systems are designed to generate a large amount of bubbles at the optimum size for the given application. Specifically, they are designed to generate high rates of bubble surface area which guarantees a high probability of attachment and improved recoveries. In leaching and other hydrometallurgical applications, SlamJet; spargers improve the process kinetics of the vessel contents by ensuring a high rate of gas dissolution.
SlamJet spargers are designed for and used with Eriez Flotation systems, and they are also easily retrofitted to improve the performance of other flotation columns.
THE INDUSTRY STANDARD
Key reasons why Plant Operators worldwide choose the Eriez Flotation SlamJet sparging systems:
Low Maintenance - Simple design, wear resistant, long operating life
In-Situ Removal - Doesn’t require draining the flotation column or system shut-down
Automatic Shut-Off - Slams shut on supply gas failure preventing the process fluid from backing up into the sparger tube and gas supply lines
Single Large Bore Orifice - Virtually eliminates plugging or fouling
STANDARD SUPPLY PACKAGE
• SlamJet Sparger
• Liquid Tight Seal
• Hose Kit
An Insertion Port Assembly and Manifold Isolation Kit are optionally available for new flotation
column installations. Insertion port assemblies enable the SlamJet sparger to be quickly and
easily removed on-line for maintenance or replacement without draining the flotation column
or shutting down the process.
SlamJet Spargers - The Sparging Factor - Improving the operating efficiency of flotation columns, leach tanks and other processes that depend on the generation of fine gas bubbles.
Sparging Systems for Leaching - Eriez SlamJets for leaching applications have many benefits over traditional methods of injecting gas to achieve desired dissolved oxygen levels in leach circuits.
