MILITICK Instrument is dedicated to Induction Timer innovation, providing effective tools for universities, research institutions and industrial labs to accelerate their various flotation R&Ds and flotation chemical screening and optimization.
Air-particle or air-bitumen attachment is an essential step for a successful flotation and is strongly dependent on the chemistry of a flotation system. In a broader sense, induction time is defined as the minimum times required for film thinning, film rupture and three-phase contact line expansion. Since it is fairly difficult to accurately measure these times separately, in practice, they have been measured collectively and referred to as the induction time. The induction time plays a critical role in flotation. Under a given hydrodynamic condition, the shorter the induction time is, the higher is the flotation recovery.
