Chrome Ore Processing Plant
Extraction, beneficiation, and processing of chrome ore produces gold. "Extraction" is defined as removing ore material from a deposit and encompasses all activities prior to beneficiation. "Beneficiation" of chrome includes concentration, generally by physical removal of unwanted gangue; also considered beneficiation is the regulation of product size, or other steps such as agglomeration to improve its chemical or physical characteristics prior to processing. "Processing" of the concentrated product into chrome typically involves the use of pyrometallurgical techniques.
The chrome ore processing plant is to produce maximum value from a given raw material. This goal can be a crushed product with certain size and shape or maximum recovery of metals out of a complex ore. The technologies to achieve these goals are classical, complementary and well defined.
A machine working in a chrome ore processing flow cannot perform better than the process environment will allow it to. Parameters like type, size and amount of feed, % solids in slurries, additives, discharge conditions etc. will always guide equipment performance and operation economy.
The choice of chrome ore processing equipment depends on the type and amount of feed material to be crushed. Jaw crushers as primary crushers used at mining operations today, although some operations use impact crushers, low-speed roll sizers and feeder breakers. Cone crushers remain the most popular for fine crushing applications, although some mines use vertical impact crushers for tertiary and quaternary crushing.
