Mineral ore are the important material to extract metal elements or mineral elements. In the earth, there are many types of mineral ore. These mineral always exists in different rock or stone, we need use some ore crusher, ore grinding machines, and ore beneficiation machines to process them.
Mineral ore types
According to the structural state of minerals and ore content，ore deposit minerals can be divided into the ore mineral, ore-bearing minerals and minerals ore containing mineral three categories. Such as gold ore, iron ore, chrome ore, nickel ore, copper ore, cobalt ore, uranium ore and soon. So as to get high grade metal elements or mineral elements which are the important ingredient in modern industry. China Kefid is a leading company in china, we supply high quality mineral ore crushing and grinding equipments and design the suitable processing flow for global customer.
Mineral ore processing equipments
Mineral ore crushers are the important equipments in mineral processing, crusher can crush mineral ore to a suitable size which are adapt to the feeding size of grinding machines. In the mineral ore crushing process, raw ore will be sent to vibrating screen after primary crushing. The top products will be crushed again and then mixed with the middle products for together secondary crushing. The finished products are then screened out. After screening, the final products will be sent into ball mill ore Raymond mill for grinding. There can be secondary grinding according to products size.
As for ore crusher, customer can choose different types according to the types of the mineral hardness. There are gold ore crusher, iron ore crusher, chrome ore crusher, nickel ore crusher, copper ore crusher, cobalt ore crusher, etc. Customer usually choose jaw crusher for primary crushing equipment and cone crusher for secondary crushing while short head cone crusher is used for fine crushing. To increase production and equipment utilization factor, Ore beneficiation plant generally follows the principle of more crushing with less grinding to reduce the size of ore into the grinding mill.
Mineral ore grinding process plays an important role in mineral ore processing plant. The mieral ore grinding mill grind the crushed ore minerals into fine even ultrafine powder so that the leaching and smelting process can go smoothly.
Mineral ore grinding mill can be divided into wet grinding type and dry grinding type. Because of these different applications, there will be open-circuit grinding and closed-circuit grinding process. Kefid Machinery can design different type of mineral ore grinding equipments for customers according to different requirement. The common ore mining machines are ball mill, raymond mill, vertical roller mill and MTW trapezium mill.
Mineral ore beneficiation process is also very important if customer need higher grade mineral. After crushing ore grinding, the mineral ore powder is fed into the SAG mill along with water, and then convoyed to ball mill for further grinding which reduces the mineral ore to slurry. The slurry fine enough passes through the trammel to primary hydrocyclone which uses centrifugal and gravitational forces to classify the rock particles according their size. It passes through the thickener to remove some of the water, and the moves into the leaching circuit.
Mineral ore processing flow design
Different mineral ore processing have different flow design. Kefid have our own engineer team, we can design suitable mineral ore processing plant for our customer. By now, we have design hundreds of mineral ore crushing plant, mineral ore grinding plant, mineral beneficiation plant. Such as iron ore crushing plant, iron ore flotation process, beneficiation of chrome ore, gold ore dressing machines and plant, silver ore processing plant, chrome ore milling plant, copper ore beneficiation plant, etc. We also provide global service, so please click to see more information or help.
