Today, global copper industry calls for high-quality copper ore processing equipment to improve the product quality and reduce the operation cost. However, for some copper investors, due to lack of investment capitals, they prefer the used copper ore processing equipment, which can also make them stand in the copper mining industry. Recently, many customers both at home and abroad have kept a great interest in the used copper ore processing equipment.
Process Flowchart of Copper Mining
For those copper investors who want to buy used copper processing equipment, it is necessary to mention the flowchart of copper mining process. In the copper mining site, the first thing is to extract raw copper ore from the copper mine. The extracted copper ore stones will have the primary crushing stage in the jaw crusher which will crush the big block copper ores into coarse copper ore particles. These coarse copper-bearing particles will be taken into the cone crusher or impact crusher for the secondary crushing stage.
To have the fixed size materials, ball mill is the essential equipment used in the grinding stage. With ball mill, copper-bearing particles will be grinded in to the fineness. In the separation process, copper-bearing particles will separated by the gravity principle. And fine copper ore flows in the water and the coarse copper ore sinks in the bottom.
Used Copper ore Processing Equipment
For small copper mining companies and investors, main types of used copper processing equipment include the copper ore crushing plant, grinding plant, copper extraction equipment and copper refining equipment. As for the copper ore crushing plant, it covers jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher and mobile copper ore crusher. copper extraction equipment, also called copper beneficiation equipment, has many types, such as spiral chute, shaking table, copper jigger, concentrator, and spiral classifier. However, associated equipment can connect different stages, including belt conveyor, vibrating grizzly screen, copper washing plant and vibrating feeder. An entire second hand copper processing line always includes the crushing plant, grinding plant, extraction equipment and other associated equipment.
