    Abstract Design and operating conditions of large size mechanical flotation cells were evaluated by comparing it with the actual operating conditions in a plant. The objective was to determine the time scale-up factor, typically based on empirical rules. Experiments were conducted on the rougher flotation circuit at Minera Escondida Ltd. The circuit consisted of self-aerated mechanical cells

    Bioreactor scale-up is a critical step in the production of therapeutic proteins such as monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). With the scale-up criterion such as similar power input per volume or O 2 volumetric mass transfer coefficient ( kLa), adequate oxygen supply and cell growth can be largely achieved. However, CO 2 stripping in the growth phase is often inadequate
