  • water treatment – floatability and rising velocity

    Flotation is said to be induced when the particle's density, originally greater than that of the liquid, is artificially reduced in order to ensure its flotation. This process takes advantage of the capacity of some solid (or liquid) particles for uniting with gas bubbles (usually air or nitrogen) in order to form "particlegas" pairs that are less dense than the liquid of which they
