Applications 

The inherent advantages of Jameson Cell Technology can benefit any flotation application, and as such, the Jameson Cell has been successfully utilised in processing industries as diverse as:

1. BASE AND PRECIOUS METALS

The integration of Jameson Cell technology into a flowsheet produces a robust and efficient plant requiring less flotation cells, equipment, and space. Consistent fine bubble generation, high intensity mixing, and froth washing allow Jameson Cells to recover minerals quickly and at superior concentrate grades compared to mechanical cells.

2. COAL

The Australian Coal Industry served as a rigorous testing ground for the Jameson Cell in the 1980s culminating in the first full scale Jameson Cell coal installation at Newlands in 1990. The Jameson Cell is now the industry standard with over 100 coal cells installed by 2010 in Australia alone.

3. OIL SANDS

Following years of development and testing in oil sands flotation the first full scale Jameson Cell downcomers were installed into oil sands processing in 2009.

4. SOLVENT EXTRACTION

Jameson Cells are used to recover organic from electrolyte and raffinate streams in copper, cobalt, nickel, platinum and zinc solvent extraction (SX) circuits worldwide.

5. INDUSTRIAL MINERALS

Jameson Cell technology was introduced into the industrial minerals industry in 1993 to recover potash ‘slimes’. In a cleaning duty, a single stage Jameson Cell can replace banks of mechanical cells and achieve final grade at maximum recovery.
