Zambia's economy mainly includes agriculture, mining and services sectors. Among them, mining industry takes important position. After independence to the 1970s mid time, economic has rapid development. Since then, because the international mining market prices drooped and the government nationalized policy mistakes, the economy was in trouble. After new government took the office, it pushes forward the economic privatization and diversification, actively attract foreign investment, which maintains rapid economic growth. The mining industry is relatively developed and it is one of the main pillars of the national economy. Its main body is copper and cobalt mining and smelting.
Cobalt is a hard metal with steel grey and metallic luster. Its main physical and chemical parameters are close to iron, nickel, and iron clan elements. Cobalt is a kind of high melting point and good stability of magnetic hard metal. It has permanent magnetism, melting point is 1495 ℃, boiling point is 2900 ℃. With high temperature resistant, the mohs hardness is 5. It is the important material to manufacturing heat resistant alloy, hard alloy, anticorrosive alloy, magnetic alloy and all kinds of cobalt salt. It is widely used in aviation, aerospace, electronics, machinery manufacturing, chemical and ceramic industries. Therefore, it is an important strategic material. Physical and chemical properties of cobalt determine it is the production of heat-resistant alloy, hard alloy, anticorrosive alloy, magnetic alloy and important raw materials of various kinds of cobalt salts.
According to the cobalt characteristics, SBM experts recommends Zambia cobalt mining operators adopting the following crushing machines: cobalt jaw crusher as the primary crushing machine, cobalt cone crusher as the secondary crushing equipment, if there is need tertiary crusher machine, the impact crusher can be used.
We can see that the cobalt hardness is 5 and it belongs to the medium hard materials. The application of cobalt needs powder materials for further production. Cobalt jaw crusher is always used as the primary crushing machines. With the jaw crusher's help, large scale cobalt materials will be processed into small size and it is designed to exceed the primary crushing needs of customers in Zambia mining, quarrying and recycling industries. These machines are amongst the most advanced and reliable in the market and are highly productive in a variety of applications. With a combination of dynamic jaw profiles and highly efficient drive system these machines return some of the lowest operating costs in their class.
The secondary cobalt crusher machine is the cone crusher. It is suitable for secondary and tertiary crushing in the Zambia cobalt mining applications. The advanced technology will provide high volumes of excellently shaped product.
Depending on customers' production requirements in Zambia, SBM designs the mobile cobalt crushing plant which includes jaw crusher, cone crusher and the feeding & screening machines for local clients. This plant is built around robust, high capacity crushers, feeders and screens, enabling them to process practically the cobalt. The mobile cobalt crushing plant can work from one place to another freely and it does not take much time and costs.
This mobile crushing plant features an extensive range of track-mounted crushing plants designed for contracting, quarrying and crushing applications. For cobalt production, this mobile crushing plant can comprise two or three stage crushing plants. The mobile crushing plants and mobile screens are engineered and built to work together smoothly even at most demanding applications. Guarantee the profitability of your cobalt production by choosing the field proven, leading mobile processing equipment.
SBM grinding mill has the LM Vertical Grinding Mills, MTM Trapezium Grinder, SCM Ultrafine Mill, T130X Reinforced Ultrafine Mill, Ball Mill, Raymond Mill and MTW Milling Machine. These grinding machines are designed to meet the rugged grinding needs of the mining industry. Cobalt grinding mill contains a hydraulic motor designed to match power and for grinding applications.
Hammer crusher machine is developed for both dry and wet crushing of brittle, medium-hard materials for the mining, cement, coal, metallurgic materials etc.
Spiral classifiers are designed to provide the most effective pool area and overflow velocity requirements.
Mobile jaw crusher is designed to exceed the primary crushing in mining, quarrying, recycling industries.
SBM has released the K series portable crushing and screening plants, which contain 72 models that fit various crushing work in metal mines, building aggregates and solid waste treatment fields.
