Phosphate Rock Processing Plant

The processing of phosphate rock from impurities and nonphosphate materials for use in fertilizer production consists of beneficiation, drying or calcining at some operations, crushing, grinding and classification etc. Phosphate rock from the mines is first sent to beneficiation units to separate sand and clay and to remove impurities. Steps used in beneficiation depend on the type of rock.

Wet beneficiatin begins with screening to separate pebble rock that is larger than 14 mesh, and smaller than 6.35 mm from the balance of the rock. The pebble rock is shipped as pebble product. The material that is larger than 20 mesh, and smaller than 14 mesh is separated using hydrocyclones and finer mesh screens and is added to the pebble product.

Phosphate Rock Production Line

At the phosphate rock production line, the slurry mixture goes through a two-step 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.

In the second stage of processing the phosphate mixture, the slurry is sent to a flotation plant, where an agent is added to the mix which coats the phosphate particles. Air bubbles are introduced, and the chemically coated phosphate adheres to the bubbles, floating on the surface of the water, while the sand drifts to the bottom of the tanks.
