Iron Ore Pellet Production At Lkab
The Brazilian iron ore industry has led the world in adopting column flotation technology for reducing the silica content of iron pellets. Several companies have installed, or are in the process of insta lling column cells into their process flowsheets. Samarco Mineracao S.A., the first Brazilian producer to use column cells, installed.There are several iron ore pelletizing processes technologies which are available for the production of the pellets.
