Copper Ore Upgrade Plant

Copper Ore Upgrade Plant

Copper is one of the metals that people knew since ancient times. With the development of production, people found the method to get copper from copper ore. After beneficiation process, natural copper ore can be turn into copper concentrate that contains higher copper taste. Generally, copper ore has bright colors and its Mohs’ hardness is 3-4. In this article, we mainly talk about copper ore upgrade plant design.

Copper Ore Upgrade Plant

Typically, in a complete copper ore upgrade plant, there should be crushing& screening, grinding and beneficiation equipment.

Crushing& Screening Equipment

As we know, the copper ore just exploited from copper mine has bulk sizes that cannot be directly fed into the grinding mill for processing, so at this time, we need crushing& screening equipment to crush and separate the copper ore into suitable sizes to enter the grinding mill. In this stage, we need primary crusher, secondary crusher and vibrating screen, belt conveyor. Generally, jaw crusher is the most commonly used primary crusher. And because of the hardness of copper ore, we suggest impact crusher as the secondary crusher.

Grinding Equipment

Grinding equipment is used to grind the copper ore into powder for further processing. And its effect directly decides the quality of final products and affects the beneficiation efficiency, so choosing proper grinding equipment means a lot. SBM provides various different types and models of grinding mills for copper ore grinding, such as vertical mill, trapezium mill, ball mill, ultrafine mill etc.

Beneficiation Equipment

Beneficiation equipment is used to upgrade the copper ore so that we can get copper concentrate. The most commonly used beneficiation equipment for copper ore processing is floatation machine. SBM provides BF, CF series flotation machine for the customers to choose. They are suitable for different production situations, customers can choose suitable one according to their own requirements.
