    The other type of flotation cells is a column cell. Column cells are tall round tanks that use compressed air to create air bubbles via spargers or cavitation tubes. These cells are used to perform mineral separations. Column cells do not use mechanical agitation (impellers). Mixing is achieved by the turbulence provided by the rising bubbles. Columns

    Flotation columns work on the same basic principle as mechanical flotation cells mineral separation takes place in an agitated and/or aerated water mineral slurry where the surfaces of selected minerals are made hydrophobic (water-repellent) by conditioning with selective flotation reagents. However, in column flotation, there is no mechanical mechanism causing agitation.

    Flotation columns use air spargers to introduce air at the bottom of a tall column while introducing slurry above. The countercurrent motion of the slurry flowing down and the air flowing up provides mixing action.
