International Mining Magazine Media Coverage: REFLUX™ Flotation Cell (RFC™) launched at the MINEXCHANGE 2022 SME Annual Conference & Expo

Flotation optimisation takes centre stage as FLSmidth launches the WEMCO II and the RFC850 at SME 2022

FLSmidth is launching two exciting developments in its flotation portfolio – the WEMCO II and the REFLUX™ Flotation Cell (RFC™) – at the MINEXCHANGE 2022 SME Annual Conference & Expo in Salt Lake City.

…On display is the smallest industrial scale version of the RFC, a ground-breaking technology that reduces plant footprint as well as water, air and energy requirements.

FLSmidth says the RFC reduces CAPEX by 35% and with no direct power input to the RFC, this results in 60% less energy use in a flotation circuit. Results from pilot-scale studies indicate that RFC technology can help mines use up to 60% less energy in their flotation circuits. Improved kinetic efficiency also reduces the amount of water used in the recovery process.

The RFC is a high efficiency flotation cell and can be applied as a rougher, scavenger and cleaner across all minerals providing customers with an option that maximises recovery and improves grade.”
