The Iron Ore Processing Course provides a concise overview of the specific unit operations associated with iron ore processing. With a strong market for iron ore and the growth of new projects, there is unprecedented demand for personnel with expertise in iron ore production. The course contains comprehensive information on the beneficiation of iron ore including comminution, sintering, upgrading, and pelletizing aspects. Various types of furnaces utilised for the production of iron are considered, and the pyrometallurgy of smelting in a blast furnace is discussed in detail.
Process analytical methods are also highlighted to familiarise personnel with quality assurance procedures, and a strong emphasis is placed on pollution control measures given trends on environmental regulations. Finally, we cover some case studies in order to familiarise ourselves with industry best practice and some of the challenges that we potentially face within the industry.
