Nickel Processes.ppt Nickel Smelting

Reduction conditions can be set to completely reduce nickel oxide, but part of the iron oxide is co-reduced. Two approaches have been adopted Minimise Fe/Ni ratio and accept a ferronickel productAdd sulphur to form a nickel/iron sulfide matte, then prefentially convert iron sulphide to oxide by blowing with air, to leave a low iron nickel suphide matte product (for further refining).

The Evolution of the Ferronickel Particles During the

The ferronickel product was recovered by means of magnetic separator from semi-molten slag and metal after water quenching. In order to increase the efficiency of magnetic separation, bigger particle size of ferronickel is desired. Therefore, in this study, the influences of CaO, CaF 2 and H 3 BO 3 additives on the evolution of ferronickel particle at temperature ≤ 1250℃ were investigated

Processing of Nickel Laterite Ores on the Rise

Traditionally, nickel has been processed from sulfide ores in an approach similar to copper processing, in which the ore is upgraded to concentrates and then smelted. As sulfide ore resources dwindle, however, processing of lateritic nickel ores is becoming of greater necessity, with many recognizing nickel laterite ores as the future of the

Pilot plant production of ferronickel from nickel oxide

Abstract Laterites and other oxidized nickel ores constitute a very important part of world-wide nickel reserves. The development of nickel oxide ore smelting has drawn heavily on iron and steel metallurgy. In ferronickel production, the nickel oxide and part of the iron oxide are reduced to metal in an electric furnace to form immiscible layers of slag and metal.
