Magnetite sand description:
As a natural iron oxide magnet, magnetite sand is the most magnetic of all minerals on earth. It is a member of the spinel group. With lustrous black and magnetic mineral, it occurs in crystals of the cubic system. Magnetite sand is a very important part of iron. It is sometimes found in large quantities in beach sand, so South Africa’s location decides there is a lot of magnetite sand mining.
Magnetite sand is the vital ore of iron. Its perfect crystals are also famous among mineral collectors. It is used as a pigment for magnetic application, cosmetics, medicines, polishing compounds, building construction, appliances, magnetic inks and polymer & rubber filler.
Magnetite sand mining:
The low grade magnetite sand does not satisfy the production and industry needs. Improve the mineral grade in magnetite sand mining is becoming more and more important.
The mining process mainly includes the following stages: extraction, crushing, separation and so on.
Magnetite sand mining process begins with the extraction stage; the raw materials can be got. The mined materials then are sent into jaw crusher for the primary crushing through vibrating feeder. After the first crushing section, the impact crusher will come into a role. In this machine, magnetite sand materials will be crushed into fineness. Next is the separation process. Because the magnetic property in the magnetite sand materials, we can adopt the magnetic separation to remove the needless materials to improve the grade.
The above machines in the magnetite sand mining process are provided by Zenith which is a professional and famous mining equipment manufacturer in the world. Depending on the advanced technology and all-round service, our magnetite sand mining machines have exported to many areas and countries in the world especially South Africa. Choose Zenith is equal to choose success.
