Reduction kinetic tests of Mt. Newman hematite ore from Western Australia were carried out in a labora-tory-scale ﬂuidized bed reactor at temperatures from 623 to 873K and an absolute pressure of 10bar. The reducing gas mixture was thermodynamically in equilibrium with magnetite and consisted of a mixture of H 2, H 2O, CO, CO 2 and CH 4.
10-07-2017· Gaviria et al. (2007) studied hematite to magnetite reduction by monitoring it with the help of Mössbauer spectroscopy and XRD. This process includes isothermal heating of hematite in a flow of H 2 –Ar mixture at temperatures between 260 and 360 °C. The hematite fully transformed to magnetite after 40 min at 320 °C.
01-08-2019· The transformation of weakly magnetic hematite to magnetite is a promising technique that can enhance the efficiency of magnetic separation of hematite quartzite. The transformation of hematite into magnetite involves the partial reduction of Fe (III) to Fe (II) and converting the rhombohedral crystal system of hematite into cubic of magnetite.
of the hematite–magnetite reduction process was determined by monitoring the change of ferrous oxide content (wFeO) in the specimens during theirtransformation under selected isothermal conditions. At the end of the reduction test, the roasted specimens were groundto pass through a
The microstructure properties for specimens with different conversion degrees were analyzed using the Brunauer, Emmett and Teller (BET) method and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The results showed that the magnetite nuclei were needle-like, and the hematite specimens became thoroughly porous after complete reduction to magnetite.
01-08-2019· Hence, processing the low-grade hematite ore becomes extremely important for the metallurgical industry. The transformation of weakly magnetic hematite into magnetite can enhance the efficiency of magnetic separation. In this work, chemical reduction of hematite to magnetite in an atmosphere with different gas composition was investigated.
initially the reduction of hematite is a surface-controlled process. However, once a thin layer of iron oxides with lower oxidation state (magnetite, wustite) is formed on the surface, it changes to diffusion control. The values of activation energies obtained were DE a ¼ 104 and DE a ¼ 24kJ/mol for the reducing gas mixtures of N 2+CO and N 2
Minerals 2017, 7, 209 2 of 12 natural hematite are different. Therefore, the kinetics parameters and mechanisms for the reduction of synthetic Fe2O3 to magnetite cannot fully explain the process and mechanism for the reduction of hematite to magnetite.
Therefore, the kinetics parameters and mechanisms for the reduction of synthetic Fe 2 O 3 to magnetite cannot fully explain the process and mechanism for the reduction of hematite to magnetite. In this work, in order to avoid the overreduction of the newly generated magnetite to wüstite (FeO), a mixture of 20% CO–80% CO 2 was used as a reducing reagent, which was thermodynamically in
Carbothermic reduction involves ore roasting in a reducing environment at 500 to 700°C for partial reduction of hematite to magnetite, followed by low-intensity magnetic separation (LIMS) to

13-05-2014· The more stable phases in iron oxides are hematite and magnetite. Hematite can be used in a lot of applications, such as sensors , water photooxidation , drug delivery , lithium ion battery , pigmentation , solar cell , etc., and magnetite can be utilized in biomedicine [7–11], magnetic devices , etc.Therefore, studies about the nano/microstructures of iron oxides and their
Various magnetic property measurements for core NGC86 confirm that reduction of maghemite to magnetite occurs at the Fe-redox boundary (Smirnov & Tarduno 2000). From IRM component analyses, the magnetic mineral assemblage above the Fe-redox
