A polymer based, silicate-free binder to

create iron ore pellets of outstanding quality

The growing world economy and an increasing population need more steel every year. Iron ore, the most important natural material for steel, is becoming steadily more scarce. Clariant has developed Floticor® PA 8000 to save energy in several ways during the formation of iron ore pellets.


Challenge

PROCESSING OF IRON ORE HAS SEVERAL DRAWBACKS

Ore deposits are increasingly contaminated with undesirable minerals which have to be removed before the crude ore can be processed. Conventional binders add silicates back in and take up a lot of time and energy to work.


Solution

SAVING ENERGY AND TIME BY PRODUCING
COMPACT AND ROBUST IRON ORE PELLETS

With specialized reagents from Clariant, the iron ore is cleaned and processed effectively in an energy-saving manner. Then the iron ore goes to the pelletizing step
where the bentonite is used. The bentonite changes its special layered structure, where the ion exchange with the protons enables additional water to enter between the layers and the mineral swells.

The surface area thereby increases fivefold. At the end of the process chain the resulting humid iron ore material needs to be converted into pellets to facilitate transport and handling. Clariant’s FLOTICOR® PA 8000 forces out water and
increases pellet compaction – the pellets become more robust.

Benefits
