The Jameson Cell technology was invented in the late 1980s to overcome the design and operating inadequacies of column and conventional flotation cells. From its first commercial installation in 1989 it has been continuously improved to make it more robust and easy to use. The latest designs combine the original advantages of small bubble size and small footprint with new low maintenance and operator-friendly designs.
Cell designs are flexible making them ideal for new projects and an excellent option for low cost plant expansions. Over 300 Jameson Cells have been installed, treating a range of materials including coal, base and precious metals, potash, bitumen, graphite, and recovering organic in solvent extraction processes. The Jameson Cell is also an ideal technology for treatment of non-sulfide and industrial minerals in addition to reverse flotation.
