Getting the right mining equipment can help you see success in the mining industry. Finding the right equipment does not have to be difficult. Here are some of the more common questions that may come up when searching for mining equipment to complete your supply.
Jaw crushers work well with medium to fine crushed materials. The quality of the materials produced from this type of equipment are suitable for lab or production use. Jaw crushers can be used on materials including iron ore, calcite, slag, basalt, and others.
Decreasing ore grades of existing or new iron ore deposits require predictive solutions to efficiently sort and blend iron ore for optimal and profitable beneficiation and downstream processing. Elemental and mineralogical composition as well as predictive models for the upgradability, based on metallurgical parameters, such as washable constituents, play an important role for iron ore producers.
Our solutions monitor the complete iron making processes - from the direct analysis on conveyor belts towards laboratory analysis and complete automated quality control of iron ore, iron sinter, direct reduced iron, pig iron and iron ore pellets. During the entire iron ore production process, we deliver tailored analytical solutions for exploration geologists, mine planners, process engineers as well as for geometallurgists and quality managers.
Prior to extracting iron ore, deposits must be evaluated to gain knowledge about the grade distribution within an ore body for optimized planning, use of drilling budget and choice of equipment for beneficiation of iron ore.
We offer analytical solutions that enable grade definition directly in the field with mineralogical (NIR) and elemental (XRF) elemental analysis. Laboratory solutions, tailored to the specific requirements of every mine, provide accurate information whether these are benchtop, stand alone or completely automated mining laboratory solutions.
With our expertise, iron ore miners can define ore grade, ensure accurate mine planning and predict the upgradability of iron ore to save more than 1 million USD per grade block that is incorrectly classified.
Our solutions for on-line analysis (elemental and mineralogical) directly in the mine enable ore sorting and fast counteractions on changing iron ore composition to produce the optimal blend for downstream processing.
Waste management is extremely important for sustainable and hazard free mining and beneficiation of iron ore. Dedicated analytical solutions for elemental analysis, particle size and shape characterization, monitoring zeta potential and characterization of clay minerals ensure the sustainable mine operations.
To efficiently process iron ore for high quality steel production, frequent ore grade monitoring, during all steps of downstream processing, is mandatory. Independent from the ironmaking method, the optimal use of fuels and energy during sintering, pelletizing and direct reduction of iron ore (DRI) needs to be applied to stay competitive and produce environmentally friendly.
Elemental composition of raw mixtures for pellet or sinter production can be monitored on-line on the mining conveyor belt with our neutron analyzers, or in the laboratory using our X-ray fluorescence spectrometers, for high throughput industries.
Knowing the mineralogical composition of iron pellets, sinter or direct reduced iron enables prediction of the properties and the behavior in the blast furnace. Our industrial X-ray diffractometers in combination with statistical methods can monitor physical parameter within minutes:
