With the increasing demand for zirconium resources, the mining and beneficiation processes of zirconium ore are also receiving increasing attention. The coastal zirconium ore resources are abundant and are one of the important production areas of zirconium ore in China. This article will introduce the specific operating steps and advantages of the seaside zirconium gravity beneficiation method.
1、 Operating Steps of Seashore Zirconium Gravity Beneficiation Method
1. Rough selection of raw ore
Firstly, the raw ore is roughly selected to remove impurities and low-grade substances. This step can be achieved through grinding, screening, gravity separation, and other methods.
2. Gravity beneficiation
Perform gravity beneficiation on the roughened ore. Gravity beneficiation is a method of separation that utilizes the different settling velocities of minerals with different densities in the gravity field. In coastal zirconium gravity beneficiation, equipment such as spiral sorting machines and vibration sorting machines are generally used for beneficiation.
3. Successful selection
Centralize the ore after gravity beneficiation, remove tailings and low-grade substances, and retain high-grade ore. The selection can be achieved through multi-level screening, gravity beneficiation, and other methods.
The selected high-grade ore will be carefully selected to further improve the grade of zircon. Selection can be achieved through methods such as gravity separation and flotation.
2、 Advantages of Seaside Zirconium Gravity Beneficiation Method
1. Good beneficiation effect
The seaside zirconium gravity beneficiation method can effectively separate zircon and other impurity minerals, improve the grade and recovery rate of zircon.
2. Simple process
The seaside zirconium gravity beneficiation method has simple operation steps, low equipment investment and operating costs, and is suitable for beneficiation in small and medium-sized mines.
3. Environmental protection and energy conservation
The seaside zirconium gravity beneficiation method does not involve the use of chemical agents, which does not cause environmental pollution and also saves energy consumption.
The seaside zirconium gravity beneficiation method is a simple, efficient, and environmentally friendly beneficiation method suitable for the mining and beneficiation of low-grade and impurity rich zirconium ore resources such as seaside zirconium ore. In practical applications, adjustments and optimizations can be made based on the specific situation of the ore to achieve better beneficiation results.
