Introduction to albite beneficiation process

97 23.Jan.2024 KZ Editor

Due to its abundant resources, stable properties and diverse application fields, albite is widely used in industry and life. Since the choice of mineral processing technology depends on the properties of the ore, in actual production, there are various types of albite mineral processing technologies, and the mineral processing plant should choose according to the characteristics of its own ore.

Albite ore crushing and screening process

The raw albite ore is transported to the crusher via a conveyor for crushing. Usually, a jaw crusher, cone crusher, etc. can be used. The crushed albite should be screened to improve the efficiency of subsequent grinding. The screening equipment can use a vibrating screen. The screened ore enters the grinding process to further refine the ore particles and improve flotation performance. Ball mills, rod mills, etc. are usually used.

Crushing, screening and grinding processes are the preliminary treatment processes for albite ore. Through these processes, the ore can obtain appropriate particle size, thus providing the basis for subsequent beneficiation, flotation and purification processes.

Albite ore desliming process

After the ore is crushed, screened, etc., it will contain some fine particles and mud. These fine particles will have an impact on the subsequent flotation process, so the ore first needs to enter a desliming tank or cyclone, and the fine particles and mud are removed from the ore through hydrocyclone separation. During the desliming process, parameters such as the flow rate of the desliming tank or the size and angle of the cyclone can be adjusted to obtain a good desliming effect.

The overflow generated by the desliming process contains fine particles and mud, which needs to be collected by a sedimentation tank or cyclone and sent to a sedimentation tank for sedimentation. After settling, the fine particles and mud in the overflow are deposited at the bottom, and the supernatant is pumped out for treatment.

Albite ore flotation process

Flotation during the albite ore beneficiation process is an important beneficiation method used to separate albite and other minerals to obtain high-purity albite concentrate. After desliming, a certain amount of regulator, anionic collector (such as fatty acid, sulfonic acid) or cationic collector is added to the slurry to improve the selectivity of flotation. The regulator added to the ore can optimize the flotation process, and the inhibitor can prevent certain minerals from floating while enhancing the flotation performance of albite. Air foam is introduced into the slurry to selectively float albite. The floated albite forms a froth flotation layer and is collected as concentrate.

The flotation process is one of the key steps in the beneficiation of albite ore. By adding appropriate regulators and flotation agents, and optimizing flotation conditions, the effective separation of albite and other minerals can be achieved, thereby obtaining high quality of albite products.

Albite ore concentration and dehydration process

The concentration and dehydration steps in the albite ore beneficiation process are to obtain a higher concentration of albite concentrate from the flotation product and to remove excess water, making the albite concentrate suitable for subsequent processing and use.

The flotation concentrate slurry is pumped into the concentration tank for concentration, and the underflow slurry enters the filter press or filter for dehydration. The overflow part can be reused as return water. After concentration and dehydration, the high-concentration, low-moisture albite concentrate obtained is the final product.
