Making Ferronickel from Laterite Nickel Ore by Coal

2016-4-19  Nickel was an important material for the production of austenitic stainless steel, heat resistant steel and nick-el-based superalloy [1] [2]. For a long time, the nickel was mainly extracted from nickel sulfide ore [3] [4]. As the exhaustion of nickel sulfide ore in China, developing the resource of laterite nickel ore with low nickel grade

Ferronickel an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The specific energy consumption for processing 1 ton of dry lean nickel ore (1% Ni) is 810 kWh or 78 200 kWh per 1 ton of nickel. The use of richer ores (2.5% to 3.0% Ni) allows the decrease of specific energy consumption at least twofold (Novikov et al., 2005). The combined nickel yield into ferronickel is

Industrially, the process is done either during dephosphorization or after dephosphorization and desulfurization. 7.4.3 Chromium. Chromium is present in ferronickel arising from smelting furnaces that operate with high contents of carbon in the feed. The chromium content in this type of ferronickel can be up to 1.7% (Bergman, 2003).It is removed during carbon oxidation with little loss of nickel.
