Manganese is essential to iron and steel production by virtue of its sulfur-fixing, deoxidizing, and alloying properties. Steelmaking, including its iron making component, has accounted for most manganese demand, presently in the range of 85% to 90% of the total demand. Among a variety of other uses, manganese is a key component of low-cost stainless steel formulations. Small amounts of manganese improve the workability of steel at high temperatures, because it forms a high melting sulfide and therefore prevents the formation of a liquid iron sulfide at the grain boundaries.
Manganese processing equipment
There is a manganese production line provided by SCM in Mexico. This production line is the whole manganese process line, which can product 100t manganese per day. SCM design all the line and supply PE Jaw Crusher for primary crusher and HPC Cone Crusher for secondary crusher. Beside, SCM Vibrating Feeder and Belt Conveyor is used in the line. SCM is a professional manufacturer of manganese crushers and manganese grinding mills.
Manganese processing flow
- The manganese testing is the first step of mining manganese, in which the manganese ore test machine is necessary.
- After manganese tested, manganese mining and processing methods include mechanical separation, which includes ore crushing, washing, screening, gravity separation, high-intensity magnetic separation and flotation separation, pyrometallurgy enrichment and chemical mineral processing method and so on.
- SCM Machinery can design all process line and supply good quality crusher to crush manganese ore, washing machine to wash manganese ore and vibrating screen to screen .
