The frothers are influence on the ability of bubbles to collect particles from the pulp and carry them to the froth layer. In this study the effect of type and dosage of frothers on bubble-particle collision probability and dispersion of fine particles was investigated. Therefore, collision probability of fine particles was calculated using frothers such as MIBC, Pine Oil, and Poly propylene glycol with concentration of 0, 25, 50 and 75 g/t respectively. According to this study, as the particle size increased the probability of collision increased but with using Poly Propylene Glycol, MIBC and Pine Oil, probability of collision increased, respectively. Under Potential flow conditions, Maximum collision probability was obtained 27.27% with Poly Propylene Glycol dosage of 75 g/t and particle size of 50 µm.
