Copper Ore Beneficiation Plant

Because of the excellent properties of copper, it has become the necessary metal for developing modern aviation industry, national defense and some other industries. To get copper, we firstly need to process copper ore in order to get copperconcentrate for smelting. In this article, we introduce copper ore beneficiation plant.

Copper Ore Beneficiation Plant

In copper ore beneficiation plant, we need not only beneficiation equipment, but also crushing and grinding equipment to process the raw copper ore into proper fineness for beneficiation.

Generally, in copper ore beneficiation plant, we suggest jaw crusher, cone crusher and ball mill as the core equipment in the crushing and grinding stage. Here, jaw crusher is the primary crusher for coarse crushing the raw copper ore, and cone crusher is the secondary crusher for crushing the copper ore into proper particles for grinding. And ball mill is mainly used to grind the copper ore particles into suitable fineness for further beneficiation.

Copper Ore Beneficiation Process

As we know, the most commonly seen copper ores in the nature are copper sulfide copper ore and copper oxide ore. These 2 kinds of copper ore need different beneficiation processes in the beneficiation stage.

Copper sulfide copper ore: flotation is the main method for copper sulfide copper ore beneficiation. And there are 3 kinds of processes:

  1. differential flotation directly or partly differential flotation: when the copper content is much higher than the copper content in the copper sulfide copper ore.
  2. bulk flotation: when the copper content is lower than coppercontent in the copper sulfide copper ore.
  3. bulk-differential flotation: when the floatability of copper minerals in the raw ore differ greatly.

copper oxide ore: since copperin copper oxide ore is generally fine, we cannot get good performance when directly adopt mechanical separation, so the beneficiation of copperoxide ore generally adopt smelting enrichment method.

So while designing a complete copper ore beneficiation plant, the mining report of the copper ore means a lot. And the engineers will design proper plant according to the mining report and the requirements of customer.
