the advantages of iron ore beneficiation and washing

Iron ore beneficiation is the process where iron ore is processed with a view to reducing contaminants and thereby increasing the iron content of the raw iron ore. This is described as increasing the Fe value.

Our iron ore washing systems are proven in many materials handling applications to significantly increase the FE value of iron ore reserves and therefore increase efficiencies in steel production.

Our iron ore washing system is an adaptation of our well established sand washing techniques and delivers significant advantages to our many customers in the iron ore processing sector.

The processing of low grade iron ore fines can be inefficient due to the presence of contaminants within the iron ore. These include alumina, silica, silt, clay etc. The presence of these contaminants reduces the efficiency of the iron making process for a number of reasons:

1. Silica requires very high temperatures for melting, increasing energy use and therefore increasing the cost of processing the iron ore.

2. Alumina and silica deposits in the kilns as a coating material, reducing efficiency over time. The kilns need to be shut down frequently to allow this material to be removed.

Our iron ore washing systems target these contaminants and ensure their effective removal from the iron ore fines. This has the effect of increasing the FE value of the iron ore, allowing for a more efficient steel production process.

Iron ore washing plant is an important machine in iron ore beneficiation process, it plays crucial role in removing the impurity and gangue mixed in the iron ore. In the steel making industry, many iron ore washing plant are applied in India, Most of the iron ore mines in India produce hematite ores and have washing plants to produce lumps as well as fines. In this process, a part of the fine gangue material is removed from the product. During the washing process, around 8-10 million tons of slimes containing around 48-60% of pure iron content are discarded every year. In iron making process, it is very important to focus attention on the reduction of contaminants within the feed material. The contaminants contents in iron ore such as alumina and silica has a negative effect on the steel production process, as they are a direct cause of high production costs. Iron ore washing plant will be a great choice to wash away the contaminants.
