Dry Beneficiation of Bauxite Minerals Using Tribo ...

Dry methods such as electrostatic separation may be of interest of the bauxite industry for the pre-concentration of bauxite prior to the Bayer process. Electrostatic separation methods that utilize contact, or tribo-electric, charging is particularity interesting because of their potential to separate a wide variety of mixtures containing ...

Bauxite from Sierra Leone

Drying is the process of reduction of natural moisture content (NMC) in bauxite. This process is being performed at the loading port in the dry kiln (120 tons/hour capacity) as well as through natural sun drying. This process enables to meet the final required moisture specification of commercial bauxite as per off-take agreement as well as ...
