Tungsten tin ore is a very important mineral resource, which contains two important metal elements, tungsten and tin. Tungsten and tin are indispensable materials in industrial production, and they are widely used in aviation, aerospace, electronics, military and other fields. Therefore, the enrichment of tungsten tin ore is of great significance for industrial production. This article will introduce the enrichment methods and operational steps of tungsten tin ore.
1、 Enrichment methods of tungsten tin ore
1. Reselection method
Gravity concentration is a common enrichment method of tungsten tin ore, which mainly uses the density difference of minerals for separation. Firstly, the tungsten tin ore is crushed into particles of a certain size, and then placed in a gravity concentrator for separation. In a concentrator, tungsten tin ore is separated according to different densities, thereby achieving enrichment.
2. Flotation method
The flotation method is another commonly used enrichment method for tungsten tin ore, which mainly utilizes the surface properties of minerals for separation. Firstly, the tungsten tin ore is broken into particles of a certain size, and then a certain agent is added to cause a chemical reaction between the tungsten tin ore and the agent, resulting in hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity on the surface of the tungsten tin ore. In a flotation machine, tungsten tin ore is separated based on its hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity, thereby achieving enrichment.
2、 Enrichment steps of tungsten tin ore
1. Crushing of ore
Firstly, it is necessary to break the tungsten tin ore into particles of a certain size, generally requiring the size of the ore particles to be between 1-3 millimeters.
2. Operation steps of reselection method
(1) Place the ore in a gravity concentrator.
(2) Turn on the concentrator and adjust its parameters to separate tungsten tin ore.
(3) Collect the separated tungsten tin ore.
3. Operation steps of flotation method
(1) Put the ore into the flotation machine.
(2) Adding certain chemicals can create hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity on the surface of tungsten tin ore.
(3) Turn on the flotation machine and adjust its parameters to separate tungsten tin ore.
(4) Collect the separated tungsten tin ore.
By using gravity separation and flotation methods, we can effectively enrich tungsten tin ore, thereby obtaining two important metal elements, tungsten and tin. In practical operation, we need to adjust according to the characteristics of the ore and the parameters of the concentrator to achieve the best enrichment effect. At the same time, we also need to pay attention to environmental issues and minimize pollution to the environment as much as possible.
