Metso Full portfolio FloatForce Upgrade
Improve metallurgical performance and energy efficiency, and reduce operating costs with a new generation mixing mechanism. By improving flotation hydrodynamics and pumping performance at high air dispersion rates, the Metso FloatForce enhances particle recovery in the flotation cell while at the same time reducing power consumption and the risk of sanding.

The mixing mechanism performance has a direct impact on the three key areas of flotation

The three key areas of flotation are:

  • Metallurgical performance
  • Energy consumption
  • Operating costs

Aging and worn mechanisms not only impact product quality by preventing cells from operating at maximum efficiency, but they also require frequent maintenance. This translates into increased downtime and costs.

The FloatForce rotor is the result of extensive laboratory, pilot, and plant-scale research and development, including computational fluid dynamics to optimize the final rotor and stator shape, as well as the position in the flotation cell. The design features wide pumping channels with separated air dispersion slots to ensure optimal mixing efficiency.

  • More efficient mixing at the same air dispersion rate
  • Maintained mixing at a higher dispersed aeration rate
  • Interchangeable with conventional mixing mechanisms
  • Increased wear life due to polyurethane lining that is double the standard thickness


The Metso FloatForce mechanism is available as a retrofit upgrade for any brand of flotation cell. Our service professionals deliver the complete package including the hardware, mechanical engineering, installation supervision, and metallurgical expertise.

  • Rotor
  • Stator and stator stand
