Pelletizing iron ore

    The equipment used to pelletize iron ore needs to be capable of conveying, feeding, mixing and screening a wide range of materials under the toughest conditions. High handling speeds and high plant availability are both essential.
    Here, Schenck Process solutions make a vital contribution to ensuring consistent quality and optimizing the production process.

    Schenck Process MULTIDOS® weighfeeders or MechaTron® loss-in-weight feeders are used for continuous gravimetric feeding of all the materials required to make the pellet mix. Minimized investment and follow-up costs (operating and maintenance costs), ease of installation and improved accuracy and quality of the end product are just some of the benefits that our products deliver.

    Schenck Process LinaClass® vibratory equipment of the SLG and SLK types plays an essential role in the screening of iron ore pellets after burning and cooling and before loading. Our SRC type vibrating feeders are also used to remove material from the bunkers and feed it to the screens.
