Iron Ore Processing
Iron ores are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be economically extracted. The ores are usually rich in iron oxides and vary in color from dark grey, bright yellow, deep purple, to rusty red. The iron itself is usually found in the form of magnetite (Fe3O4), hematite (Fe2O3), goethite (FeO(OH)), limonite (FeO(OH).n(H2O)) or siderite (FeCO3).
Fe3O4, Fe2O3, FeO(OH), FeCO3, etc.
Jaw Crusher, Ball Mill,Magnetic Separator
Iron Ore Crushing:
The most commonly used crushers in iron ore crushing plant are jaw crusher, impact crusher, hammer crusher and high-efficient iron ore fine crushers, etc. In iron ore crushing plant, customers usually choose a complete iron ore production line for higher efficiency. At present, the most popular iron ore production lines consists of two jaw crushers. After crushing, the material will be sent for the magnetic separation, and then into the ball mill for grinding.
Iron Ore Grinding:
Ball mill is the most commonly iron ore grinding machinery in the secondary stages. Compared with many other grinding mills, the capacity of ball mill is higher and it do be a kind of high performance and price ratio iron ore beneficiation equipment.
Iron Ore Concentrating Process
At the tertiary process, the equipments are quite different from each other for the concentrating methods are different from each other. For example, iron ore producers can choose high-intensity magnetic separation; they can also utilize low-intensity magnetic separation method. Also gravity-separation method is OK. Because the principles of these methods are different, the machines used in iron ore concentrating process are quite different, too. Which method is OK for producers, it depends on the analysis and experiments.
