Iron Ore

Iron ore is an important raw material in steel production enterprises. After been crushing , grinding, magnetic separation, flotation, re-election and other procedures, iron will be gradually separated from natural minerals (iron ore). Iron ore is the mineral aggregates of iron element or iron compound which can be used economically. Ore which contains iron element that can be used economically is called iron ore.There are many types of iron ore, and that mainly for iron making includes magnetite (Fe3O4), hematite (Fe2O3), siderite (FeCO3) and so on.

Technological Process

On iron ore beneficiation, according to different variety and mature of the minerals, there are different process flow. In general, concentrating mill adopts coarse crushing, medium-crushing, and fine crushing three stages to crush. In the iron ore crushing product line, to improve the product efficiency of iron ore crusher and low the product cost, we should broke the iron ore to the finest size to achieve the effect of crushing more and grinding less. Based on practical experience and user feedback, the industry believes that cone crusher fits the iron ore crushing best.The specific process of iron ore crushing product line: the iron ore is evenly transported to iron ore crusher (jaw crusher) for coarse crushing, then the coarse crushing materials will be conveyed to cone crusher by belt conveyor for further crushing, and then the crushed materials will be conveyed to vibrating screen to be screened. Materials that meet the finished product size requirement will be conveyed to finished product pile by belt conveyor; those haven't meet the requirement will be returned to medium-crushing or fine crushing cone crusher, and then form a closed cycle. The finished product granularity can be combined and graded according to user's demands.

Application Fields

Iron ore is an important raw material in steel production enterprises. After iron ore crusher's crushing , grinding, magnetic separation, flotation, re-election and other procedures, iron will be gradually separated from natural minerals (iron ore). Theoretically, mineral that contains iron element or iron compound is called iron ore. But, to industry or business, different from manganese ore, not only the iron ore contains iron element, but also it has use value. After mined from mine, the iron ore will be processed into iron powder with about 65% purity, and then be smelted to sponge iron, and then to steel.
