Copper processing Roasting, smelting, and converting

11-05-2021 · Copper processing Copper processing Roasting, smelting, and converting Once a concentrate has been produced containing copper and other metals of value (such as gold and silver), the next step is to remove impurity elements. In older processes the concentrate, containing between 5 and 10 percent water, is first roasted in a cylindrical, refractory-lined furnace of either the hearth or

Continuous process for copper smelting and converting in

Flash smelting process yields a high grade of matte. A matte, produced in the flash smelting furnace, nevertheless, has to be transported to the converters and oxidized to obtain blister copper employing the same two-stage, multi-cycle, batch operation as in the conventional process.

Copper Smelting an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Copper smelting plants separate elemental copper from copper concentrates through multiple sulphide oxidizing stages. The considered smelting process includes a continuously functioning flash smelting furnace (FSF) and several Pierce-Smith converters operated in batches. Automating scheduling provides advisory information to operators.
