[PDF] Copper smelting mechanism in oxygen bottom
Abstract The SKS furnace is a horizontal cylindrical reactor similar to a Noranda furnace, however, the oxygen enriched air is blown into the furnace from the bottom. Mechanism model of the SKS process was developed by analyzing the smelting characteristics deeply. In our model, the furnace section from top to bottom is divided into seven functional layers, i.e., gas layer, mineral,Copper Mining and Processing: Resources and Glossary,,For copper sulfide ore, smelting is a stage in the process of,For copper sulfide ore, a stage in the process of pyrometallurgy, in which the copper froth from the froth floatation stage is poured into large tanks called thickeners, where the copper solids settle and are filtered to remove excess water; this copper concentrate will then undergo smelting. verdigris: A blue-green layer that,Copper Production: How Is Copper Made? - ThoughtCo,26/09/2019· Sulfide Ores . Virtually all sulfide-type copper ores, including chalcocite (Cu 2 S), chalcopyrite (CuFeS 2) and covellite (CuS), are treated by smelting.After crushing the ore to a fine powder, it is concentrated by froth flotation, which requires mixing the powdered ore with reagents that combine with the copper to make it hydrophobic.
