Titanium sand is an important metal ore that is widely used in aviation, aerospace, military, medical and other fields. The titanium sand beneficiation process is the process of separating useful minerals from titanium sand. Below, we will have a detailed understanding of the titanium sand beneficiation process.
1、 Preparation work before titanium sand beneficiation
1. Ore crushing: Titanium sand ore needs to be crushed, and the crushed ore can better enter the beneficiation equipment for processing.
2. Classification of ores: Titanium sand ores need to be classified to separate ores with different particle sizes for better beneficiation.
3. Drying of ore: Titanium sand ore needs to be dried to remove moisture from the ore for better beneficiation.
2、 The main process flow of titanium sand beneficiation
1. Gravity separation process: Titanium sand ore is sorted through gravity separation equipment to separate useful minerals from the ore.
2. Magnetic separation process: The ore after gravity separation is subjected to magnetic separation equipment to separate the magnetic minerals from the ore.
3. Electrical separation process: The magnetically separated ore is subjected to electrical separation through electrical separation equipment to separate non magnetic minerals from the ore.
4. Flotation process: The electrically selected ore is subjected to flotation equipment to separate useful minerals from the ore.
5. Selection process: The flotation ore is selected through selection equipment to further separate useful minerals from the ore and achieve higher grades.
III. Subsequent treatment after titanium sand beneficiation
1. Heat treatment of titanium sand ore: Heat treat the processed titanium sand ore to remove impurities and improve the grade of titanium sand.
2. Smelting of titanium sand ore: Smelting the heat treated titanium sand ore to obtain pure titanium and titanium alloy products.
The above is a detailed introduction to the titanium sand beneficiation process. Through the above introduction, we can understand that the titanium sand beneficiation process is a complex process that requires multiple processing steps to ultimately obtain useful products.
