18 mm) remains a recognized challenge although some efforts have been made to improve the flotation process. Previous studies have shown that coarse particle flotation performance can be enhanced by picobubbles generated by hydrodynamic cavitation. In this work, a picobubble enhanced flotation column has been developed for enhancing recovery of coarse phosphate particles. Picobubble size was measured by a laser particle size analyzer. The collector dosage was reduced by one half to two thirds as a result of the selective adsorption of picobubbles on hydrophobic phosphate particle, which act as a secondary collector.

The coarse (+1180 mm) portion is primarily phosphate pebble and does not require further upgrading. The fine (–106 mm) portion that contains virtually all of the clay minerals is discarded in the hydrocyclone overflow (Patrick and Albarelli, 1995). , –425 mm +106 mm) fractions, which are upgraded using conventional flotation machines. This widely used flotation process can produce acceptable concentrates with P2O5 recoveries at the low-90 percents from the fine flotation feed, but gives poor resovery on the coarse fraction.

Deutsch and Castano (1986) showed that hydrodynamic drag force Fd can be significantly reduced by picobubbles, which decreases the detachment force. The excess force increases with decreasing bubble size Db. Thus smaller bubbles can be used to reduce coarse particle detachment and increase the upper flotation limit. 18 mm particle size fraction. The coarse phosphate flotation rate constant k (the slope of the plot) in the presence of picobubbles is substantially higher than in the absence of picobubbles, which indicates that the presence of picobubbles increased the phosphate flotation rate constant k and thus may increase capacity of a given flotation column.
