Iron ores are rocks and minerals from which metallic iron can be economically extracted. ron is the world’s most commonly used metal – steel, of which iron ore is the key ingredient, represents almost 95% of all metal used per year. It is used primarily in structural engineering applications and in maritime purposes, automobiles, and general industrial applications (machinery).
Iron ore is mined in about 50 countries. The seven largest of these producing countries account for about three-quarters of total world production. Canada, Australia and Brazil together dominate the world’s iron ore exports, each having about one-third of total exports.
The world’s iron ore resources are concentration in Australia, Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, India, the United States, South Africa, Canada and other countries. Several important iron ore are including magnetite, hematite, limonite, iron silicate minerals and other silicate. The majority of iron ore goes through iron ore processing and is used to make steel. Iron ore processing is a process that contains explosions, shoveling, moving, crushing, grinding, pelletizing etc. Iron ore processing provides a range of coarse sizing which can produce material in 24-inch to .0017-inch particle sizes.
Jaw iron ore crusher for iron ore: Jaw crusher is used in primary crushing station. It can crush iron ore into small sizes. Thus, these small iron ore can enter into the iron ore mill such as ball mill for grinding.
Impact iron ore crusher is generally used after jaw crusher, and can crush hard stones, not only the iron ore, but also other ores such as copper, bauxite, gold, Kaolinite, manganese etc.
Hammer crushers are widely used in small quarries with small capacities. That’s because in such situation, the cost and the difficulty of changing and maintaining worn hammers are more acceptable to the quarry owners. However, once the quarry owners want to enhance the capacity to above 50-60t/h by one crushing plant, hammer crushers are no longer suitable. Using hammer crusher to do a big crushing work will lead to a passive situation of high consuming cost and frequent maintenance.
Cone crusher in Canada is the most common fine iron ore crusher machine, and usually used as final iron ore crushing machine. DSMAC cone crusher has four types: spring cone crusher, hydraulic cone crusher. Every cone crusher has their different applications.
Mining equipment manufacturer DSMAC can supply you the iron ore crushing plant solution and related equipments such as iron ore crusher, iron ore mobile crushing equipment, iron ore screening equipments for sale etc.
