Ilmenite Ore Beneficiation Plant
Ilmenite (FeTiO 3) is the essential titanium ore, accounting for up to 47 of the aggregate global production of TiO 2, a whitening pigment.The leading worldwide provider of ilmenite ore is Australia, followed by South Africa, China and Canada. The ore materializes as two alternative morphologies heavy sand ilmenite, the most utilized morphology, and hard rock.
The typical mineral composition is ilmenite 80 , zircon 10 , leucoxene 5 , rutile 1 , monazite 0.5 , others 3.5 . Rutile (TiO2) is a red to black, naturally occurring titanium dioxide with a theoretical TiO2 content of 100 , but impurities such as Fe2O3 and Cr2O2 reduce this to 93–95 .
