Development of ore processing
The enormous diversity of mineral goods (iron, copper, niobium, phosphate, sand, etc.) and of the processes that form these deposits makes each mineral site unique, and requires the development of a specific process.
Separation and concentration of mineral components of an ore are the basic processing steps to obtain a concentrate of the mineral of interest for use as raw material by the metal transformation industry.
IPT possesses a wide range of comminution (crushing and milling), classification, ganulometric sorting, concentration and agglomeration equipment, and performs tests to analyze granulometry and determine the millability index (Bond W.I.). This enables IPT to develop, analyze and improve ore treatment processes, establishing the sequence of individual operations necessary to obtain a product suitable for industry, making the best use of the ore and reducing costs.
