bauxite process used

  • Bauxite

    In the bauxite refining process, the aluminum-bearing minerals in bauxite are converted in a ple-step process to alumina (Al2O3). Alumina can be smelted to form metallic aluminum or it can be used as the source of many other products, including refractory materials used to line high-temperature rotary kilns and metallurgical furnaces.

  • Processing of Bauxite Ores - Mine Engineer.Com

    Bauxite, the primary aluminum ore, uses the Bayer Process to extract alumina from the ore. The processing begins with crushing to 1-2 inch particles and wet screening, to remove some silica fines, which are generally present with bauxite.

    Mar 11, 2019 · The Bayer Process. Though alumina can be produced from bauxite by other chemical processes, the Bayer process is the main industrial route for metallurgical alumina production, as it is the most economical process for purification of bauxite that contains a considerable amount of Fe 2 O 3. Over 95% of the alumina produced globally is derived from bauxite using the Bayer process.
