During the last six months, Metso has received orders to install over 50 flotation cells in Spain and Portugal, ranging from small 15 m³ units to large 300 m³ cells. Metso will deliver flotation equipment to expansion projects by Almina, Somincor and other leading mining companies located on the Iberian Pyrite Belt as well as Saloro in Barruecopardo, western Spain. Metso RCS flotation equipment is designed to ensure higher recovery and throughput as well as to reduce maintenance and energy costs.
The Metso RCS flotation machine combines the benefits of circular cells with the unique features of the DV mechanism, creating the ideal conditions to maximize flotation. The new improved RCS flotation cell is an all-purpose flotation machine suitable for all flotation applications, such as roughing, cleaning and scavenging. Metso offers the full range of cell volumes required for modern ore processing plants, with cell sizes from 0.8 m3 to 600 m3.
