World’s best flotation performance

The industry-leading TankCell range provides the world’s best flotation performance and has the widest range of cell sizes on the market, from 5 to 630 m³.

Our cells provide superior performance across all duties in rougher, scavenger and cleaner circuits. Based on in-depth test work, we can design a tailor-made flotation circuit for your plant that will deliver optimized cell volume, froth carry rate and residence time.

Wide range of cell sizes

TankCell flotation units are built to last. For example, Metso rotors and stators are the most wear-resistant available.

The cells are easy to operate, low on power and air consumption, and allow for a modular layout.
The wide range of cell sizes up to 630 m³ enables a compact, economical, and efficient plant design without risk of short circuiting, even for today’s high-tonnage operations. Fewer units mean substantial savings in construction costs, piping, cables, instrumentation and auxiliary equipment.

Improve metallurgical performance and energy efficiency while reducing operating costs with our rotor-stator mixing mechanism, FloatForce.

By improving flotation hydrodynamics and pumping performance at high air dispersion rates, the FloatForce enhances particle recovery in the flotation cell while reducing power consumption and the risk of sanding at the same time.

The mixing mechanism performance has a direct impact on the three key areas of flotation, which are metallurgical performance, energy consumption and operating costs. The design features wide pumping channels with separated air dispersion slots to ensure optimal mixing efficiency.
