Graphite Ore Beneficiation Process

Graphite Ore Mining Production Line

[Introduction]: The graphite mining processes are mainly gravity separation process, froth flotation process, electric separation process and the combination process. And froth flotation process is the main graphite ore processing method. Generally, 90%-97% grade of graphite concentrate can be obtained after the graphite flotation process. For the different graphite ore properties, the graphite mining processes are also different.

[Application]: Graphite mining processes are mainly applied in the various graphite ore with different types of crystalline and graphite ore accompanied with silicate minerals, such as mica and pyrite.

Process Description

Multi-stage Grinding and Multi-stage Flotation

To protect the graphite flakes from crushing, Xinhai uses multi-stage grinding flow. Through re-grinding and re-processing, the quality of concentrates is qualified. 

Gravity Separation - Flotation Combined Technology Flow

For graphite ores with heavy minerals, Xinhai graivty separation - flotation combined technology flow can be used. The heavy minerals are separated through gravity separation, and the tailings are dealed with flotation. 

Graphite Processing Equipment

Coarse crushing equipment for crystalline and amorphous graphite is common jaw crusher. The middling and fine crushing equipment is common cone crusher or hammer crusher. The grinding equipment uses wet ball mill and grid ball mill. The flotation equipment for graphite is common JJF flotation cell, XCF flotation cell and XJB flotation cell. The dewatering equipment of graphite is common hydrocyclone or belt filter. 

Flotation Reagent

In muti-stage flotation process, the common foaming agents are No.2 oil, No.4 oil, ether alcohol, rourke oil etc; The collectors are kerosene, diesel, heavy oil, sulfonate, sulfate, phenols, carboxylic acids etc.
