A cell in which the solids-water pulp feed is kept agitated, and is circulated by means of an impeller mounted at the bottom of a vertical shaft. The rotating impeller creates vacuum enough to draw air down the standpipe surrounding the impeller shaft, and the impeller disperses the air throughout the pulp in the form of small bubbles. The flotable minerals are carried upward by the bubbles and eventually collect in the froth above the pulp in the machine. Automatic scrapers remove the mineral-laden froth that contains the concentrate, and after the values have been removed, the barren pulp containing the tailing flows out of the cell. Newton, 1
