The application of streaming potential to mineral-dressing is comparatively recent. Although colloidal chemists, for some time, have been familiar with streaming potential and the electrical double layer, A.M. Gaudin, Richards Professor of mineral-dressing, M.I.T, and D.W. Fuerstenau, his assistant, were the first to publish a series of experiments dealing directly with streaming potential applied to flotation. The apparatus described in this thesis was used by Fuerstenau and was developed by him especially for this type of investigation.
