Processing The phosphate is sent to a chemical processing plant, or fertilizer manufacturing plant. Here, molten sulfur, shipped to Florida ports and trucked to the plant, is used to create sulfuric acid. The sulfuric acid is then mixed with the phosphate to make phosphoric acid.Read More
9.3 Processing phosphates. Phosphate rock (phosphorite) is a marine sedimentary rock that contains 1840% P 2 O 5, as well as some uranium with all its decay products, often 70200 ppm U, and sometimes up to 800 ppm. The main mineral in the phosphate rock is apatite,Read More
Chemical Processing of Phosphate. The phosphate mineral as it exists in the ground is not soluble and is hard for the plant to access. To provide the plant with the phosphate it needs, in a form it can take up through its roots, the phosphate rock is converted to phosphoric acid.Read More
11.21 Phosphate Rock Processing 11.21.1 Process Description15 The separation of phosphate rock from impurities and nonphosphate materials for use in fertilizer manufacture consists of beneficiation, drying or calcining at some operations, and grinding. The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code for phosphate rock processing is 1475. TheRead More
The processing techniques of phosphate ores depend mostly on the type of associated gangue minerals present in the mined rock. In some cases, simple, inexpensive techniques are enough to produceRead More
At the processing plant, the slurry mixture goes through a twostep process to separate the phosphate rock from sand and clay particles. The first stage is a concentrating process that separates the phosphate pebbles from everything else. The average operation can wash and size a maximum of 375 tons of pebbles in an hour.Read More
Large scale mining and processing of phosphate is essential for operating at a profit. In the Florida area, Phosphate Beneficiation by flotation unlocked the door to vast tonnages of ore which in the past could not be recovered by conventional washing methods which saved only the coarser pebble phosphate. Many of the areas now being mined contain very little or no pebble phosphate, so the mainRead More
