Iron Ore Beneficiation Plant

iron ore beneficiation introduction

Beneficiation is the process where ore is reduced in size and gange separated from the ore. Since all iron ore deposits have unique mineralogy, the beneficiation process is specific to each deposit. Separation of certain minerals can be efficiently achieved by taking advantage of the physical, electrical and magnetic properties.

SBM Company provides a comprehensive range of test work services for the minerals sector. Our extensive global network of laboratory and metallurgical testing facilities support most of the processes that are used in the exploration and treatment of most metals and commodities globally. All physical separation techniques can be tested at SBM, both on the laboratory and pilot plant scales. We have expertise in the following beneficiation techniques including: scrubbing, crushing, gravity and magnetic separation, selective flocculation, flotation.


iron ore beneficiation plant

generally speaking, the iron ore goes through the following stages of production: primary crushing, secondary crushing and sieving, tertiary crushing and sieving, grinding, cycling and finally, the filtering of pellet feed. The objective of the beneficiation plant is to obtain three different grain thicknesses from the iron ore: pellet feed, sinter feed and granulated.Iron ore screening plant acts classifier of iron ore final products. It divided standard iron ore sand from too larger ones which will be resized by iron ore crushers.

As we all known, different ores have different beneficiation methods and beneficiation equipment. Iron ore beneficiation methods is determined by its own characteristics and properties. Iron ore beneficiation process can be divided into iron ore crushing, grinding, sizing, separating, concentrating. In each operation, you need different beneficiation equipment. For iron ore crushing, we can provide you with different kinds of crushing and grinding equipment, such as iron ore jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, ball mill, super thin grinding mill and so on. In terms of iron ore separating, magnetic separation is a common used method to separate natural magnetic iron ore from various less-magnetic or nonmagnetic materials. But there are occasions when gravity or flotation method is more efficient than magnetic separation and these all depend on the ore properties and actual situations. After separating, thickening and dewatering are processed to remove the moisture or liquid from mineral fines. After all those procedures, you can get high-grade and dry iron products.
