Magnetite Ore Concentration Plant For Sale Kenya
Hematite and magnetite are by far the most common types of ore. Pure magnetite contains 72.4 percent iron, hematite 69.9 percent, limonite 59.8 percent, and siderite Most are sedimentary, but many have been changed by weathering, and so their precise origin is difficult to determine.The challenge for virtually all magnetite operations is to minimise operating costs, which is dominated by the cost of power required to fine grind the ore in order to achieve acceptable concentrate iron grade together with low impurity content.In magnetic washing (wet concentration), finely ground magnetite ore mixed with water passes under the drums, which rotate opposite the flow of the slurry and extract from it any ferromagnetic materials. In washing manganese and other weakly magnetic ores the separators operate with a much stronger field (1,500 kA m), which is generated in the.Their concentration in economic proportions is referred to as 'iron ore'. Other well known uses of iron compounds are Iron sulfate used as fungicide, the oxalate of iron in photographic development, limonite, goethite, hematite as pigments and abrasives, magnetite in the production of industrial electrodes and also for washing coal.
