Titanium Ores Kyocera Sgs Europe
Titanium's resistance to chlorine and acid makes it an important material in chemical processing. It is used for the various pumps, valves, and heat exchangers on the chemical production line. The oil refining industry employs titanium materials for condenser tubes because of corrosion resistance.Pigment-grade TiO 2 product meeting industry specifications has been produced using this process. The development of this process for the production of TiO 2 illustrates the role of deeper understanding of process steps, process chemistry, and separation technologies in developing a unique innovative process.Recovery of titanium bearing minerals from the deposit, producing commercial grade ilmenite concentrates (up to 63.7 TiO 2) and rutile grade concentrates (up to 93.4 TiO 2). It was found that, for fine particles, the titanium grade increased greatly when titanium-bearing minerals were separated from the deposit by a Knelson concentrator.Kiruna (Fig. 4) is the largest, most famous and at the same time northernmost mine. The ore body in Kiruna is a massive block of high-grade magnetite ore, 4 km long, 80 m wide and extending over a depth of 2 km. Fig. 5 shows the proven existing reserves of iron ore at the 4 LKAB mines, as well as the iron grades of the ores in the reserves.
