Copper smelting process

Aug 16, 2021

May 29, 2018 Copper smelting is the process through which the copper ore is purified through intense heating and melting to derive high quality copper or copper products. As most copper ores are sulphur-based, the smelting process releases sulphur dioxide, an air pollutant which has many harmful effects

    Copper sulfide and iron oxide can mix, but when sufficient silica is added, a separate slag layer is formed. Adding silica also reduces the melting point (or, more properly, the liquidus temperature) of the slag, meaning that the smelting process can be operated at a lower temperature. The slag forming reaction is: FeO + SiO 2 → FeO.SiO 2
