The 6th International Flotation Conference (Flotation ’13)  held from 18 to 21 November 2013 at The Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town.


November 18-19: Flotation Fundamentals: Physics and Chemistry

Although now over a hundred years old, the fundamental aspects of flotation are still being intensively researched, and new machines developed. This two day symposium will focus on:

  • Fundamental reagent and flotation chemistry
  • Bubbles, froths, bubble-particle interactions
  • Flotation cell hydrodynamics, kinetics and scale-up

The keynote lecture “Flotation research – does advancement require a paradigm shift?” will be given by Prof. Kari Heiskanen, of Aalto University, Finland.

November 20-21: Flotation Applications and Plant Practice

This two day symposium focuses on the application of flotation, and will include sessions on:

  • Plant Operations, particularly related to new technology, and process mineralogy problems
  • Flotation Circuits, and their modelling, simulation, control and optimisation
  • Flotation machine developments
  • Metallic, non-metallic and coal flotation
  • Environmental considerations

The keynote lecture “True Value Added in Flotation” will be given by Dr. Dariusz Lelinski, Global Flotation Technology Manager, FLSmidth, Salt Lake City.

The conference will be held at the Vineyard Hotel, in the leafy suburb of Claremont in Cape Town. The hotel offers a stunning view of the slopes of Devils Peak and Table Mountain on 6 acres of parkland.
