The science of floating bodies
financing a commercial enterprise by bond or stock shares

Act of financing, or floating, a commercial venture or an issue of bonds, stock, or the like
A flotation compartment helps something to float because it is filled with air or gas. or froth flotation Most widely used process for extracting many minerals from their ores. The method separates and concentrates ores by altering their surfaces so that they are either repelled or attracted by water. Unwetted particles, which adhere to air that is bubbled through the water, will float in the froth, while wetted particles will sink. The process was developed on a commercial scale early in the 20th century to remove very fine mineral particles that formerly had gone to waste in gravity concentration plants. With its use to concentrate copper, lead, and zinc minerals, which commonly accompany one another in their ores, many complex ore mixtures formerly of little value have become major sources of certain metals
The sale to individuals, financial institutions or private sector businesses of shares which can then be traded on a stock market
A process whereby finely crushed ore is separated in a froth caused by chemicals which allow some minerals to float and others to sink
The process of mixing ground ore with water chemical reagents and air to separate mineral particles from waste rock The mineral particles stick to the air bubbles and float to the surface The froth is collected and dewatered to produce concentrate for smelting or further processing
a milling process by which some mineral particles are induced to become attached to bubbles of froth and float, and others to sink, so that the valuable minerals are concentrated and separated from the gangue
The first occasion on which a public company’s shares are offered widely to investors on the market Flotations are often referred to as new issues although it is possible for companies already in the stockmarket to issue new shares
A method of screening (sleving) excavated matrix in water so as to separate and recover small ecofacts and artifacts
A technique used to extract objects from soil by using churning water or other liquids to carry away the soil, leaving larger objects to be caught by a screen
A separation operation in which air blown through a liquid suspension of a mixture of solids will separate air-avid solids
A form of concentration of certain minerals from gangue based on their different surface reaction to chemical flocculants A reagent (chemical flocculants) is used to adhere to the target mineral, which then rises to the top of the flotation cell with injected air, where it can be collected
A method of obtaining seeds and other organic materials from soil by using liquids
The process of separating the finer particles of phosphate from the sand (see Beneficiation)
a process by which some mineral particles are induced, by the introduction of specific reagents, to become attached to bubbles and float while other particles sink; the valuable minerals are concentrated and separated from the gaunge
the phenomenon of floating (remaining on the surface of a liquid without sinking)
A process by which some mineral particles are induced to become attached to bubbles and float, and other particles to sink, so that the valuable minerals are concentrated and separated from the worthless gangue
A technique used to separate solid materials by using a solvent such as water and floating the desired substance off the surface In fruit flotation, silicates are added to water to modify the density of the water to allow the fruit to float, and to aid in the cleaning of their surfaces In ore processing, separates the desired material from the gangue or undesired material In deinking, separates the ink from the pulp
Tractive ability of the transport device to resist sinkage into the medium being traversed (7)
{i} floating; launching, setting sail; act of starting a business
A solids-liquid or liquid-liquid separation procedure, which is applied to particles of which the density is lower than that of the liquid they are in there are three types: natural, aided and induces flotation Flow The discharge rate of a resource, expressed in volume during a certain period of time
The use of fluid suspension to recover tiny plant and bone fragments from archaeological sites (Thomas 1979: 461)
financing a commercial enterprise by bond or stock shares the phenomenon of floating (remaining on the surface of a liquid without sinking)
The flotation of a company is the selling of shares in it to the public
The occasion on which a company's shares are offered on a market for the first time
Is experienced in a flotation tank, which is a specially designed chamber containing sufficient salt-saturated water to enable one to float In this sate of suspension one can free the mind from outside stimuli by creating a relaxed and unencumbered state The participant lies in the super-saturated-salty water, which has tremendous buoyancy, and by absorbing the force of gravity; one floats effortlessly, thus allowing the mind and body to release tension Floating weightlessly in a sound and lightproof environment can be a unique and liberating experience relieving stress and enhancing the ability to concentrate
An archaeological recovery method of obtaining seeds and other organic materials from soil by using liquids
When a company's shares are admitted to trading on the ASE
The act, process, or state of floating
alternative spelling of floatation
Method by which hydrophobic (water-repelling) particles of an ore are separated from hydrophilic (water-attracting) particles of a metallurgical pretreatment process
is time spent out of time lying face up in a 10 inch deep pool of skin-temperature, salt-saturated water, effectively simulating weightlessness The tank environment is silent and typically totally dark, reducing sensory input to an absolute minimum In this non-intrusive environment, the body disappears, and the mind slows and stops, expanding into essential consciousness Flotation allows deep levels of relaxation, producing emotional tranquility, mental clarity and physical rejuvenation
flotation cost
The selling cost or distribution cost of issuing new securities
flotation cell
(Mühendislik) (mining engineering) The device in which froth flotation of ores is performed
flotation cell
(Mühendislik) (petroleum engineering) A large tank for separating oil from contaminated water by rapidly bubbling gas through the water to scavenge the oil droplets
flotation device
A life preserver
flotation process
A process of separating the substances contained in pulverized ore or the like by depositing the mixture on the surface of a flowing liquid, the substances that are quickly wet readily overcoming the surface tension of the liquid and sinking, the others flowing off in a film or slime on the surface, though, perhaps, having a greater specific gravity than those that sink
flotation tank
a large container full of warm salty water, often with a cover on it to make it dark inside, that you float in so that you can relax, or to treat illness or injury

supernatation
personal flotation device
A life vest or other device or article of clothing designed to be used by one person as an aid to remaining safely afloat in water, especially in a emergency situation

Under the new personal flotation device regulations, boats 16 feet and longer must have one wearable type flotation device on board the boat for each person.

plural form of personal flotation device
dissolved air flotation
Dissolved air flotation (DAF) is a water treatment process that clarifies wastewaters (or other waters) by the removal of suspended matter such as oil or solids. The removal is achieved by dissolving air in the water or wastewater under pressure and then releasing the air at atmospheric pressure in a flotation tank or basin. The released air forms tiny bubbles which adhere to the suspended matter causing the suspended matter to float to the suface of the water where it may then be removed by a skimming device
center of flotation
the center of gravity of a floating object
floatation
The occasion on which a company’s shares are offered on the market for the 1st time
floatation
financing a commercial enterprise by bond or stock shares
floatation

floatation
a British spelling of flotation

floatation
Float in tanks filled with sterile salt water regulated so that its temperature is precisely the same as your body temperature for a sense of buoyancy and weightlessness You float in complete sensory isolation so that no nerve impulses move from the skin to the brain for a unique feeling of relaxation Can be used in complete silence, music or guided imagery More about this subject
floatation
