alumina silica ratio in iron ore

Role of silica and alumina content in the flotation of

Mar 10, 2016 Flotation studies of naturally occurring iron ores further established the fact that it is easier to upgrade the iron values from a high silica ore compared to a high alumina ore. It was possible to produce an overall iron concentrate containing 62% Fe with 86% recovery for a silica bearing ore, but the grade and recovery of an alumina bearing

Only a few producers can supply iron ore pellets (and rarely lump) grades upward of 66-67% Fe suitable for the DR route. Iron

Role of silica and alumina content in the flotation of

In this context, the difference in silica and alumina content in low grade iron ores is brought to bear on the prospects of iron ore flotation. For this purpose, pure minerals like hematite, quartz, gibbsite, and clay have been used to prepare synthetic mixtures and analyzed to determine the difference in floatability.

Alumina and its Role in Iron and Steelmaking IspatGuru

Sep 08, 2017 High alumina in the iron ore raises the levels of alumina in blast furnace slag. To operate a blast furnace with high alumina slag is quite difficult and need a different type of skill from the blast furnace operators since with the increase in the Al2O3 content of the slag, the blast furnace operation has problems such as excess accumulation

High Alumina Slag and Blast Furnace Operation IspatGuru

May 27, 2013 High Al2O3 slag is encountered mainly because of high Al2O3/SiO2 ratio in iron ore as well as in sinter and high ash content in coke. These slags are highly viscous. In the case of BF ironmaking, slag viscosity is a very important physical property as it

The feed should be such that alumina to silica ratio should be less than 1, alumina content in iron ore must be less than 2% and the coke to iron burden ratio preferably be maintained at 2:1 . Hence, there is a need for a rapid and reliable technique to determine alumina wt.% in iron ore and moisture wt.% in coke for the blast furnace feed.

Factors influencing Sinter and Sintering Process IspatGuru

Jul 08, 2013 The iron ore porosity has effect on the sinter porosity and its physical and metallurgical properties. Iron ores with high loss on ignition affects the sintering process in a negative way by reducing the productivity, increasing the specific fuel consumption and reducing the sinter strength.
