Leaching Of Alumina From Bauxite

Geotechnical characterization of bauxite residue (red mud)

Abstract. Bauxite residue is the ironoxide rich mine waste from the processing of bauxite ore for the extraction of alumina through the Bayer process. The Bayer process uses caustic soda, high pressure, and high temperature to leach alumina from ferruginous residue slurry (bauxite residue or red mud). This leaching process produces alumina to ...

Sep 03, 2019 · Leaching of Alumina from bauxite. Leaching of alumina is done by the Bayer's process. The principal ore of aluminium, bauxite, usually contains SiO 2, iron oxides and titanium oxide (TiO 2) as impurities. Concentration is carried out by digesting the powdered ore with a concentrated solution of NaOH at 473 – 523 K and 35 – 36 bar pressure.
