About Jameson Cell

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.

The Jameson Cell is an innovative flotation process driven by fluid mechanics. The advantages of modern Jameson Cells are:

  • Consistent fine bubble generation with no external equipment or spargers.
  • Intense mixing with small bubbles achieving rapid flotation without mechanical agitation.
  • High throughput in a small footprint.
  • Froth washing maximizes concentrate grade in a single flotation stage.
  • Fast response and easy control.
  • Steady operation and performance irrespective of changes in feed flow.
  • No moving parts, simple to install and maintain, excellent availability.

Cell designs are flexible making them ideal for new projects and an excellent option for low cost plant expansions. In the first 20 years of commercialisation 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.
