Development of the High-purity Aluminium Oxide Powder Producing Technology on the Ural Region Raw Materials Basis


This article considers an effective way of complex alumina-containing materials of natural or technogenic origin processing with obtaining a whole complex of raw materials: alkali-free highly active aluminum hydroxide, iron hydroxide, aluminum hydroxide, etc. In laboratory conditions the alumina raw materials behavior in the thickening, washing, filtration processes were checked. The optimal parameters of the processes were selected as a result of conducted research.

Keywords: non-conventional alumina raw materials, technogenic materials, hydrochemical processing, ammonium hydrosulfate, environmental friendliness, efficiency
