Development of Ammophos Production Technology from Algerian Phosphorites

Technological aspects of ammophos production using Algerian phosphorites as a raw material have been investigated. The necessity of increased consumption of sulphuric acid during the Algerian phosporites processing compared with apatite processing has been grounded. The dependence of pH solution on NH3:H3PO4 molar ratio has been determined during neutralization of extraction phosphoric acid prepared from Algerian phosphorites. The necessity of acid solution deeper neutralization in the technology of extraction phosphoric acid production has been proved.

The Study of the Mineralogical Composition and Flotation Parameters of Quartz-Graphitized Schist

Exploration studies in Uzbekistan revealed one graphite deposit (Taskazgan) and about 25 sites with varying perspective degree. In order to obtain the graphite for refractory industry uses insufficiently known Rupat, Zauchak and Zahchahona sites were studied. According to the research, Zahchahona site can be classified as a medium-sized field; the refined graphite content in the ore deposit is 3 to 15 %, which meets the requirements of the industry for this type of raw material. Graphite was refined by flotation and leaching process, brought to grade of 75 % carbon.
