Preparation of Standard Iron Concentrates from Non-Traditional Forms of Raw Material Using a Pulsed Magnetic Field

  • S. A. Korchevenkov
  • T. N. Aleksandrova

The article is devoted to studying the possibility of preparing iron concentrates from fine classes of dumped fly ash of Far East thermal power plants by means of dry magnetic separation using a laboratory pulsed magnetic field separator. Process indices are compared for ash separation in different types of magnetic separators. Characteristics of a laboratory pulsed magnetic field separator and experimental scheme are provided. Separation products are analyzed and separation indices are calculated.
