With an unparalleled depth of knowledge fe merals the world’s largest producers rely on us as their ‘go to’ partner to beneficiate Iron Ore fes for new and existg projects. Craig Vadeikis talks about iron ore
Goethitic iron ore is present hydroxide form and leads to distegration of pellets durg firg process. Hence, it is this direction an attempt has been made to study the processg of low grade goethitic iron ore fes obtaed from Sghbhum, Odisha belt.
The process of sterg begs with the preparation of the raw materials consistg of iron ore fes, fluxes, -plant metallurgical waste materials, fuel and return fes of the ster plant. These materials are mixed a rotatg drum and water is added order to reach proper agglomeration of the raw materials mix.
A vast reserve of iron ore fes exists the tailg dam that conta up to 60% Fe. The ore is maly hematite. The wet processg plant (5 million tonnes per year capacity) located at the me site produces −40+10 mm lumps for use blast furnace, −10 mm+100 mesh fes for the ster plant, and the −100 mesh is disposed as tailgs.
Iron ore is the raw material used to make pig iron, which is one of the ma raw materials to make steel—98% of the med iron ore is used to make steel. Indeed, it has been argued that iron ore is "more tegral to the global economy than any other commodity, except perhaps oil".
