Welcome to Ashapura Bentonite.
Designed for substantial reduction of Bentonite consumption thereby reducing the Si02 content in the pellet chemistry: High % of Iron Oxide (up to 15%), ideal for iron ore pelletizing. High montmorillonite content, resulting in lower bentonite consumption rate. Excellent water absorption rate resulting in maximum bonding with filtercake.What is Bentonite? - Industrial Minerals Association,,Pelletizing: Bentonite is used as a binding agent in the production of iron ore pellets. Through this process, iron ore fines are converted into spherical pellets, suitable as feed material in blast furnaces for pig iron production, or in the production of direct reduction iron (DRI).Iron Ore Processing for the Blast Furnace,The following describes operations at the National Steel Pellet Company, an iron ore mining and processing facility located on the Mesabi Iron Range of Minnesota. Creating steel from low-grade iron ore requires a long process of mining, crushing, separating, concentrating, mixing, pelletizing, and shipping.
