Ilmenite by virtue of being rich in iron often has small concentrations of impurities such as Mn3O4, Al2O3, CaO, Cr2O3, and MgO. Removal of iron and other impurities is essential for the production of pigment grade TiO2. An investigation of the removal of iron was undertaken by roasting the mineral ilmenite with soda ash in air above 873 K. A ternary phase was identified, which played an important role in the overall kinetics. The dependence of temperature, time, mixture composition, and the… CONTINUE READING
