NovaCell™ is a breakthrough in flotation equipment technology and provides efficient coarse and fine particle flotation in one device.

The novel design supports the growth of the critical minerals sector, by providing innovative, sustainable technology that achieves the following outcomes:

Enables lower energy input circuits for selective flotation

 Ensures efficient recovery of valuable minerals in simple and flexible circuits

Reduces water consumption and dust creation

Minimises the use of tailings dams through dry tailings disposal

NovaCell™ applications

NovaCell™ technology can be applied to precious metals, base metals, coal and industrial minerals. We test all types of commodities and the technology has a unique ability to separate and recover a range of particle sizes – even for ore types with low levels of mineral liberation.

Coarse Flotation -The NovaCell allows clients to separate valuable minerals at a coarse grind size. Installed at the head of the float circuit, mine operators can increase plant throughputs and/or reduce energy consumption whilst improving the overall metal recovery.

Coarse Gangue (Waste) Rejection – The NovaCell™ enables clients to reject a significant portion of waste material early in the process. As a result, mine operators can target higher throughputs, reduce energy consumption and/or install smaller downstream equipment.

Tailings Scavenging – The NovaCell™ can be installed on a rougher scavenger tailings stream. This allows clients to increase the overall plant recovery and produce a ‘cleaner’ tailing with less acid-generating potential for disposal.
