SBM Brazil iron sand crushing plant expands the application of iron ore

The iron sand crushing plant made by SBM has superior performance. While improving the processing efficiency of the Brazilian iron ore to ensure the supply of the world market, it also greatly expands the applications of iron ore.

Situation of Brazil iron ore in the world

Brazil is very rich in various mineral resources. Currently, the proven Brazil iron sand reserve is 33.3 billion tons, accounting for 9.8% of world total reserves and ranking fifth in the world. In Brazil, the average annual production of iron ore is 355 million tons, ranking second in the world and its export volume is in the world front rank. The latest data released by Brazil's customs shows that, in October 2013, Brazilian iron ore exports 32.52 million ton in total.

For the export destination, Brazilian iron ore exports of 23.03 million tons to Asia, of which the Chinese export 18.56 million ton and up 24%. Brazilian iron ore exports of 4.9 million tons to the EU and the increase is 52%, exports of 1.17 million tons to the Middle East, exports of 515,000 tons to South American. In October, the Brazilian pellets iron ore exports 1,310,000 tons to the EU, exports of 1,020,000 tons to Asia and Africa 581 000 t, South America 365 000 t, the Middle East 341 000 t, the Caribbean, 207,000 t. From January to October this year, total exports of Brazilian iron ore is 2.2891 million tons. With an increase of 4%, the average price is $ 92 per ton and adding 4%. The total exports of pellets iron ore is 38.2 million tons.

Brazilian iron ore processing equipment

Iron ore is very versatile in life. Newly mined iron ore is usually pieces and need to be put into use after processing. In addition, the taste of this iron ore is very low and the content of iron is very low. So beneficiation and processing must be carried out in order to become a high-purity iron. Of course, there also have relatively high amounts of iron ore and the manufacturing processes can be simplified. Currently in the world, Brazil owns the richest iron ore resources and Brazilian iron ore processing equipment is a world leading level.

Shanghai SBM is specialized in mining machinery manufacturing and has rich experience in production. Over the years, SBM has produced a series of mining crushing and milling equipment to meet the various production needs of customers. Our products are sold at home and abroad in more than 100 countries and regions. In Brazil, SBM specifically introduced the Brazilian iron ore processing equipment -- iron sand crushing plant.

This plant is made for the iron ore processing, including iron ore feeding equipment, iron ore crushing equipment, iron ore sand making equipment, iron ore screening equipment, iron ore belt conveyer and iron ore dust removal equipment. Each device has a high performance, stable, reliable, easy to operate. The devices combine with each other and form a highly efficient machine structure. Not only compact, small footprint, but also the capacity of the equipment links up well, matches each other well and runs smoothly.

Using the SBM iron sand crushing plant for the processing of iron ore, the benefit you will get is that energy efficient, small dust, no pollution, reduce costs, and this device uses intelligent electronic control system, greatly reducing the manual operation and saving processing costs for businesses. For the dispersal distribution problems of iron ore, SBM improved the plant. Currently, the SBM iron sand crushing plant as well as mobile functionality, which is can achieve the transfer of production equipment within a short distance and reduce the placement cost of production line. However, compared to the production line, the lack of the crusher is the smaller production capacity.

Brazilian iron ore processing flow

In Brazil, quarries, iron ore processing flow can be roughly divided into: coarse crushing, secondary crushing, sand making and sand washing.

Coarse crushing: the raw iron ore material in the silo is feeding evenly to the jaw crusher by the vibrating feeder for primary crushing. After primary crushing, the iron ore get together to transit stockpile by a small conveyor belt.
Secondary crushing: the iron ore in transit stockpile transfer to the impact crusher for intermediate crushing. Then, the iron ore will be screening by circular vibrating screen. Larger particles of iron ore returned to the impact crusher again for re-crushing and medium-grained material into the sand making crusher for crushing, shaping.
Sand making: After the medium-grained iron ore materials into the iron sand crusher, they will be screening by a circular vibrating screen. The larger grain size materials returned to the crusher to be broken again and the qualified products will be sent to the sand washing machine by the belt conveyor.
Sand washing: the iron ore materials can be part of the final product after cleaned by the iron washing machine and then sent to the stockpile as the final product by belt conveyor.

SBM iron sand production line

On the basis of experience of many years on production, SBM is not only professional in producing mining processing equipment, but also design and produce solutions based on customer's actual situation. SBM iron sand production line mainly include iron ore jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher, sand making crusher, sand washing machines.
