Ferrochrome Recovery Plant from Steelmaking Slag

Ferrochrome processing technology is changing in response to environmental concerns and a decreasing utilizability of traditional ‘lumpy’ ore for smelting. New cost-effective techniques for handling fine feeds are being utilized at the more modern installations.

Most South African producers of ferrochrome and chromite for the chrome chemicals’ market have established the entire vertical integrated structure of resource ownership, mining, mineral processing, smelting and marketing. Competitive advantage was first and foremost in the ownership of the prime resources, then in the modern smelting technology, and lastly in the marketing capabilities.

Ferrochrome Recovery Plant

The ferrochrome production industry has shifted from the higher cost producers in the developed countries to the developing countries of South Africa and Kazakhstan where extensive chromite ore deposits exist. This is a natural tendency as commodity production moves down the cost curve. Because the ferrochrome business is directly linked to the stainless steel business and this market is based to a large degree upon the construction industry, the ferrochrome business cycles with global growth.

Steelmaking Slag Recycling Machine

Steelmaking slag can be recycled and processed for recovery useful materials. In steelmaking slag recycling process, the slag will be first crushed and grinded for size reduction. First the slags need to be crushed by impact crusher, and then conveyed to ball mill by belt conveyor for grinding. And the materials may need to be re-grinded by high pressure mill. Then flotation separator will be used to concentrate the ferrochrome and other useful materials. There will be much moisture in the final materials, thickener and dryer are used to dry the material for final applications.
