Polysaccharide Depressants for the Reverse Flotation

Review of reverse flotation of iron ore is presented with a focus on the polysaccharide depressants used and the corresponding adsorption phenomena. Iron oxide minerals have a special affinity for starch and other polysaccharides, and this special property facilitates their depression during the reverse cationic flotation of silica with ether amines in Brazil (Peres and Correa, in Miner Eng 9

Removal of Silica and Alumina as Impurities from Low

2019-5-24  The iron grade also showed the higher content of 51.38 mass% when the pipe matrix was used as compared to the expand metal. This result shows that the pipe matrix has a simple structure compared with the expanded metal, hence the entrainment of silica and alumina was low and the iron minerals could be ef-ficiently recovered. 3.2.
