Customer Success Stories

Coal Plant
FloteFeed & On-Site Expertise Increases CHPP Flotation Product Yield & Process Stability in Excess of $8M

Flotation kinetics are often the limiting factor when trying to maximize flotation yield and recovery. The newly developed Nalco Water FloteFeed technology increases flotation kinetics particularly when mixing energy or conditioning time are limiting factors.

Coal Handling Plant
FloteFeed G2 Technology Increases Coal Flotation Kinetics with a Delivered Value of $18M

Coal Handling and Preparation Plants (CHPPs) employ flotation to maximize recovery of-500 micron by zero coal. CHPP operators are continually optimizing flotation to increase recovery of lost coal.  A Queensland Australia coking coal producer was utilizing a Nalco Water flotation frother in its coal flotation circuit.
