The major operating difference between column and mechanical cells is the lack of agitation in column cells that reduces energy and maintenance costs. Also, it has been reported that the cost of installing a column flotation circuit is approximately 25–40% less than an equivalent mechanical flotation circuit ( Murdock et al., 1991 ).
