The Imhoflot G-Cell, a new development in the pneumatic flotation technology (which incorporates centrifugal forces in the separating vessel), is a recent innovation in the mineral processing world. The G-Cell was invented by Dr Rainer Imhof and commercialized by Maelgwyn Mineral Services Ltd. In a short time span a number of plants and units have been successfully commissioned in the
mineral processing industry. In addition, a number of industrial G- Cell flotation plants are in the process of construction for the purpose of coal preparation and environmental remediation. In this paper two industrial installations have been highlighted, together with a pilot plant test programme investigating ultra-fine flotation recovery for a base metal operation.
