of surfactants in ore flotation

Natural Surfactants for Flotation Deinking in Paper …

The surfactant can exist at the ink-water interface, the ink-air interface and the air-water interface, changing the surface characteristics. There has been some recent interest in flotation processes in which the surfactant is sprayed on the top of the flotation cell rather than mixed with the pulp prior to flotation (DeLozier et al, 2005).
