  • Iron Ore Pelletizing Plants - Case Study

    Changing the iron ore processing chain The iron ore being mined globally can approximately be divided equally into boulders and fines. For further processing boulders have to be sized to 10-30 mm for blast furnaces and 6-18 mm for sponge iron plants. Iron ore in a finely ground state is not easily transported or readily processed .The iron ore pelletizing process agglomerates the fine ...

  • Modelling particle growth of calcium carbonate in a pilot-scale pellet fluidized bed reactor

    Pellet fluidized bed reactors have been widely used to soften water. Reports from laboratory-scale research on the particle growth kinetics of calcium carbonate in pellet reactors have been put forward. However, the reports have not been comprehensive as they only consider the influence of supersaturation on the calcium carbonate growth process. The influence of three factors, namely, the ...

  • Hurricane Cyclones To Reduce Emissions Of Dryer Cyclones In Glowood Pellet Plant (71,839 m3/h at 87ºC) - Case Study

    Foreword ACS designed and supplied a Hurricane Cyclone System to reduce PM emissions of existing dryer cyclones at Glowood Pellet Plant. The plant occupies a total area of 3.8 hectares and a total investment amounting to 10 M€. Production (100.000 ton/y) is 100% for export, as Portugal consumes under 10% of what it manufactures on a global basis (approximately 1M ton/y in 2012). A ...

  • Plastics pellet manufacturer eliminates blend problems with uniquely designed rotary blender

    Having no internal moving elements, blender achieves 100% discharge eliminating process problems. To remain competitive in a widening world economy, manufacturers have to provide quality products at world market competitive prices. This has forced American manufacturers to rethink their approach to manufacturing. Particularly, rethink the cost effectiveness of their ...
