Iron ore is the main source of primary iron required for the global iron and steel industries. It is essential to produce steel, which helps to create and maintain a strong industrial base. Iron ore mining methods vary by the type of ore being mined. There are four main types of iron ore deposits worked currently, depending on the mineralogy ...
Dryer testing in the FEECO Innovation Center. Conclusion. The ability to control the moisture content of a mineral whether raw ore or end product is essential to the mineral processing industry, providing economic, handling, and processing benefits and allowing a premium product to be produced.
A process for ore moisture removal by exposure of the ore to a hot and dry air stream is described. Also described is a conveyor belt and a transfer chute adapted for the use of the above process. Among other aspects, the process has the function of reducing moisture in ores prior to the shipping stage of this material.
An overland conveyor transports the ore from primary and secondary sizers to a radial stacker that positions the material in a large stockpile area. A series of five parallel incline conveyors feed ore from the stockpile into five scrubbers, slowly rotating drums where the ore is mixed with water to remove undesirable impurities.
Our robust pug mills and rotary dryers are also frequently relied upon for processing steel by products in the form of dust and scale in order to liberate iron ore. Rotary dryers may also be used in ore drying applications. We can also supply briquetters for briquetting sponge iron and hot briquetted iron .
Iron ore dryer, also known as mineral dryer, is a kind of rotary drum dryer. It is available in handling a large number of bulk materials, such as limestone, clay, coal powder, fly ash, slag, metal concentrate, tailings, and other materials that have certain humidity.
