In the present study, three batch compositions were prepared utilizing iron ore tailing in the range of 45-60 wt%, clay 25-35 wt% and feldspar 15-20 wt%. The compacts were heated in the temperature range of 1100o-1150oC. All the samples heated at 1150oC possess very high cold crushing strength (>150 MPa) and high flexural strength (>60 MPa) with less than 0.1% water absorption. Such high mechanical strength is beneficial for floor tiles to prevent impact damage. The phase evolution during… 

Production of Construction Bricks Using Iron Ore Tailings and Clay

Mixing iron ore tailings with clay for manufacturing bricks was investigated with the objective of converting the hazardous solid waste into useful products. Blocks were prepared using different

Investigating mechanical properties of hot mix asphalt containing iron ore flotation tailing

Studies involving the use of iron ore tailings from the beneficiation process in different market niches are increasingly necessary due to the large environmental damage caused by their disposal in

Recovering Iron from Iron Ore Tailings and Preparing Concrete Composite Admixtures

Iron ore tailings (IOTs) are a form of solid waste produced during the beneficiation process of iron ore concentrate. In this paper, iron recovery from IOTs was studied at different points during a

Influence of Ferrum on Crystallization and Microstructure of Steel Slag Based Glass-Ceramics

The influence of iron content and oxidation state on the crystallization and microstructure of steel slag based glass-ceramics was investigated in the CaO-Al2O3-SiO2-MgO-FeOx system. The

Technological research on converting iron ore tailings into a marketable product

SYNOPSIS We present three technological scenarios for the recovery of valuable components from gangue, stored in the tailings dam at Kremikovtzi metallurgical plant in Bulgaria, into marketable
