10 Best Ore Beneficiation Plants for Sale (with Costs)

Author : Jordan | Last Updated :

Before purchasing an ore beneficiation plant, people have lots of concerns: Which equipment I should choose to process my iron ore? Is this ore processing flowsheet best? Can these machines help me remove sulfur in iron ore beneficiation? Would they increase the recovery rate of tailings?

Then how to choose the right ore beneficiation plant depends on a lot of factors including physical properties of raw ore, capacity demands, final ore product requirements, geological situations of ore mines, and so on.

Here Fote Group would love to share valuable information about mining market trends, ways to build a high-quality ore beneficiation plant, and ten different ore processing plants which have been proved successful by our customers. If you have any most pressing questions and concerns, please contact our professional engineers who can make customized solutions according to your actual situation.

Our ore beneficiation plants sale to many countries, such as India, Australia, the USA, the UK, Canada, Switzerland, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, South Africa, Sudan, Egypt, Kenya, Indonesia, Nigeria, etc.

Ore beneficiation plant investment with profitable future

Nowadays, with ways of ore processing are getting more and more diversified and intelligent, the investment is not only limited to gold ore beneficiation but enlarged to many other items. From precious metals to coal, and to non-ferrous metals, investors can profit and bring more economic benefits to society.

Which ores have high commercial value and good prospects?

Over 80 kinds of ores are widely used minerals in the world. Due to large output and high international trade volume, there are the several most common and important ores such as iron ore, copper ore, gold ore, bauxite, coal, lead&zinc ore, nickel ore, tin ore, and manganese ore, etc.

Viewing huge demands for these ores at the market, many investors have seized the opportunity to obtain high profits from the ore beneficiation plants.

Nothing can replace iron ore in developing infrastructures as well as coal ore in the electricity industry, those ores making a great contribution to countries' economic growth. Gold ore mining ranks in a top position, attracting lots of investment for closed relations between the gold price and currency market.

Since there is no satisfactory manganese alternative, which makes South Africa whose manganese ore accounting for 78% of the world's identified manganese resources always be a major exporter.

How can you get higher profits from the beneficiation plants?

  • Adopt advanced ore processing technology to maximize the use of ore resources.
  • Maximize the recovery rate of tailings.
  • Fully understand your own actual mining resources. For example, if the ore reserves are abundant, it would be better to choose a fixed and complete ore beneficiation plant with long service life. If ores are scattered in different areas, flexible and movable beneficiation lines would be perfect. If your mining areas always be with large rainfall, dry beneficiation methods should be avoided.
  • Make full use of the original production base including old plant, equipment, and production experience.

How to set up a high-efficiency beneficiation plant?

A complete ore beneficiation plant has four stages: screening and crushing, mill grinding process, beneficiation process, and ore drying process.

4Ore drying process

The screening and crushing process is used to release useful minerals from the gangue. Different types of crushers reduce large sizes of raw ore into smaller ones, then vibrating screen with different mesh would help to get the desired size of ores. During the process, how many crushers need to be installed according to your real situation.

Usually, there are crushers with three crushing stages: primary crushers like jaw crushers, secondary crushers like cone crushers, roll crushers and impact crushers, tertiary crushers like compound crushers and fine crushers. Vibrating screens also have different types: Circular motion vibrating screens, horizontal Screens, high-frequency Screens, and trommel/ drum screens.

Only by crushers cannot get ore products with fine granularity, that's why mill grinding machines necessary in the beneficiation process. The mill grinding process is almost carried out in two consecutive stages: one is dry grinding (coarse grinding) and the other is wet grinding (fine grinding). The key grinding equipment are ball mills and rod mills, and the latter is now mostly used for wet grinding to finally produce fine and uniform ore products.

The beneficiation process is most crucial during the whole plant, helping people extract high value and pure ore concentrate products from ores no matter its grade high or low. The beneficiation process can be carried out in a variety of ways as needed but you ought to select a piece of optimal equipment to avoid inefficiency and waste in the entire process. The most common beneficiation equipment includes flotation machines, electrostatic and magnetic separators, and gravity beneficiation equipment.

Ore drying equipment may appear in any stage of a mineral processing plant (from raw ore-concentrate-finished product). The purpose of drying is to remove the moisture contained in the ore, ensuring the integrity of the product, and maximizing the value. In addition, drying process can also reduce product transportation costs and improve the economic efficiency of storage and processing.
