Bauxite residue is the main by-product of alumina refineries which has to be treated and disposed of in tremendous amounts. Proper bauxite residue filtration, treatment, long-termed disposal or even reusage influence the sales cost per tonne alumina remarkably due to caustic loss in the disposed residue, residue handling and disposal technology, water consumption for washing and water ...
Alcoa approved a capital investment of US115 Million for residue filtration at the Kwinana refinery in Western Australia, a technology with multiple benefits, which we commissioned in early 2016. With this technology, bauxite residue generated from the alumina refining process is forced through very large filters that squeeze out the water, which is recycled in the process.
to filter faster and yield a drier filter cake than a slurry with a large proportion of small particles. Bauxite residue slurries vary greatly in their particle size distribution. Looking at the particle size distributions of the many bauxite residue slurries tested at Diemme Filtration, the typical range is as follows.
Solute analysis of bauxite residue filter cakes is an important but not very well understood operation carried out at refineries and in scientific research. As more and more refineries rely currently on dry cake disposal after filtration, washing and deliquoring of the cakes, the importance of correctly performed cake analysis will increase.
Nov 23, 2020 Bauxite residue is a solid waste formed during the production of alumina in the Bayer process. Due to the big amount produced every year and to the large amount already stockpiled, the production of this residue represents a serious concern for the alumina producers. ... subsequent water leaching and filtration of the digested bauxite residue ...
71 bauxite residue undergoes a separation technique during processing Evans, 2016, which 72 allows it to be separated into two main fractions a fine fraction with a particle size 100 m 73 and a coarse fraction with a particle size 150 m Eastham et al., 2006 Jones et al., 2012.
Mining and Refining Bauxite Residue Utilisation. Since the start of large scale manufacture of alumina using the Bayer Process in the 1890s, the industry has sought ways of using bauxite residue in a sustainable manner. Despite the enormous amount of work and countless studies over many years, the utilisation rate has historically been modest.
The study presented in this article aims at detecting the most important variables influencing the deliquoring and washing of bauxite residue, performed with a horizontal membrane filter press and by determining the optimal washing conditions.

Bauxite residue is a by-product of the Bayer Process. It is primarily composed of the insoluble fraction of the bauxite ore that remains after extraction of the aluminium-containing components. Iron oxides 10 30, titanium dioxide 2 15, silicon oxide 5 20 and undissolved alumina 0 20 make up the residue, together with ...

After high pressure filtration of the bauxite residue slurry the resulting filter cake, herein called Filtered Bauxite Residue BR or ferroalumina or other commercial names such as Bauxaline has a solid content of about 75 wt. constituting a moist material, which
Mar 11, 2019 The bauxite residue is thickened to a high-density slurry using an advanced thickener, flocculation, and dewatering filtration technologies. The thickened red mud slurry is pumped via pipeline to the storage area and spread in layers, allowing it to de-water through a combination of drainage and evaporative drying.
Nov 18, 2019 Bauxite residue is a highly alkaline industrial solid waste generated during the alumina production process. Its high alkalinity has caused serious air, land, and water pollution. Acid neutralization is an effective method to remove alkali from the bauxite residue, but the low filtration efficiency restricts its
Oct 15, 2015 Bauxite residue has been produced since the development of the aluminaaluminium industry in the ... for example, filtration developments. Significant research in remediation solutions for existing residue material is being undertaken. High alkalinity in much of the stockpiled material is a critical aspect to be resolved.
Nov 24, 2017 The research article Local properties of filter cakes formed from pH-adjusted bauxite residue slurries has been published in Elsevier journal Separation and Purification Technology. Abstract. Solid-liquid separation of bauxite residue is a topical issue in the alumina industry, not least due to the great quantity and problematic properties of ...
Jun 10, 2015 Filtration is performed, because dry cake disposal of bauxite residue requires filtration of the thickened residue, to obtain a cake with significantly reduced moisture content approximately 3035 most vacuum filters and 2528 typical pressure filters.
Oct 19, 2020 Abstract. A new step in the Bayer process has been used to recover NaOH and to reduce its content in red mud. After digestion, the residue is separated from the Bayer liquor and goes through press filters, which enables the recovery of NaOH and decreases the moisture content.
Oct 15, 2015 In the Bayer process, bauxite is heated under high temperature and pressure conditions in caustic soda to form a solution of sodium aluminate leaving behind an insoluble residue. The sodium aluminate is then filtered and aluminium hydroxide crystals are encouraged to precipitate.
by Alcan for bauxite residue storage. After washing of the red mud in five stages of counter current decantation CCD to recover caustic, the underflow slurry with suspended solids content 37 to 44 ww is pumped to vacuum drum filters as shown in Figure 1 where it is further de-liquored and the filter cake is washed. The filter cake discharges

Aug 06, 2019 Generally, the filter press performance depends on the bauxite residue characteristics inherited from the bauxite properties and the particular process of the alumina refinery. One very important property is the particle size, showing a reduction of filterability of the residue caused by the too fine particle size.
