This chapter summarizes the batch converting process of copper matte. Converting is the second half of the smelting or converting sequence by which most of the copper–iron sulfide concentrates are made into metallic copper. Other raw materials include silica flux, air, and industrial oxygen. Smelting is the pyrometallurgical process used to produce copper metal. In , world copper smelter production reached million tonnes copper. Recently, the trend to recover copper directly from ores through leaching processes has been on the increase.

discovered that heat made copper more malle-able. Casting and smelting of copper began around B.C. (see figure ). About B. C., copper was combined with tin to make bronze—an alloy that allowed stronger weapons and tools. Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, probably was not developed until A.D. Copper 1 Lead Mercury Particulates - smelter 20 Particulates - other sources 50 Slag should be landfilled or granulated and sold. Modern plants using good industrial practices should target on meeting releases for total dust of kg/t copper and a discharge for SO2 of 25 kg/t copper. The double contact double absorption plant.

  The Mitsubishi continuous copper smelting process that combines the matte smelting and converting steps into one continuous coupled operation is then discussed. Finally, some observation on the industry trends for copper production is presented. The use and degradation of refractory linings in copper furnaces are discussed in Section New areas of coverage include the environmentally appropriate uses of copper cables in power transmission for wind and solar energy sources; the recycling of electronic scrap as an important new feedstock to the copper industry, and state-of-the-art Ausmelt and Isasmelt bath smelting processes for sulfide concentrate smelting and converting.

A high grade ore produces a high yield of metal. A low grade order produces a low yield of metal. Copper can be extracted from sulfide ores (usually higher grade ores) by direct smelting. The earliest evidence of copper smelting occurs in Serbian artefacts dating from around BC.

Copper Smelting means that the concentrated ore is heated strongly with silicon dioxide (silica), calcium carbonate (CaCO 3) and air in a furnace. The major steps in the extraction of copper are. Copper in Chalcopyrite is reduced to copper sulphide.

Just like in Blast Furnaces, calcium carbonate is added as a flux to create the slag. Copper matte converting is the key step to ensure high primary copper recovery in the smelting chain.

Copper conversion from the ore to metal is accomplished by smelting. During smelting the concentrates are dried and fed into one of several different types of furnaces. There the sulphide minerals are partially oxidized and melted to yield a layer of matte, a mixed copper-iron sulphide and slag, an upper layer of waste.

Copper is produced in the U. primarily by pyrometallurgical smelting methods. Pyrometallurgical techniques use heat to separate copper from copper sulfide ore concentrates. Process steps include mining, concentration, roasting, smelting, converting, and finally fire and electrolytic refining.

Process Description Mining produces. Copper processing - Copper processing - Roasting, smelting, and converting: Once a concentrate has been produced containing copper and other metals of value (such as gold and silver), the next step is to remove impurity elements.

In older processes the concentrate, containing between 5 and 10 percent water, is first roasted in a cylindrical, refractory-lined furnace of either the hearth or. Converting is often a major bottleneck in conventional copper smelters.

In recent decades there have been considerable technological enhancements that focus on different aspects of copper smelters, such ashigh pressure injection, matte granulation, sensors, and expert control systems. The majority of pilot scale testing focusses on converting crushed copper matte produced in the ISASMELT™ smelting furnace.

This two stage smelting and converting process is being considered for installation at a number of copper smelter sites. COPPER SMELTING The overall copper process is shown in Figure ; this block diagram also shows the sulfuric acid plant that processes the sulfur dioxide generated in the roasting and converting steps.

The production of sulfuric acid from a copper smelter requires smelter process gas with an SO2 concentration in the. Download PDF: Sorry, we are unable to provide the full text but you may find it at the following location(s): (external link) http.Introduction to Copper Smelting Techniques.

Copper ore typically contains only about % of the actual copper mineral, the most common ore mined being chalcopyrite. The ore is attained using traditional methods of underground and open pit mining, the later accounting for 90% of the ore used in smelting.may contain lead, zinc, nickel, and other metals— and on whether facilities are in place for captur-ing and converting the sulfur dioxide.

SO. 2. emissions may range from less than 4 kilo-grams per metric ton (kg/t) of copper to 2, kg/t of copper. Particulate emissions can range from kg/t of copper to as high as 20 kg/t of copper.
