Titanium minerals Rutile, Ilmenite, Leucoxene LKAB

Rutile, Ilmenite and Leucoxene are very versatile minerals and can be used as a protective coating for welding electrodes, in production of pigments, as filler in paints to increase whiteness and brilliance, and as a source of titanium for the production of titanium metals. Related applications Welding rods.

Ilmenite

Like rutile, ilmenite is quite variable in nature. You can tell the difference between granular rutile and granular ilmenite by doing a smear test against an abrasive surface (i.e. an unglazed white tile). The rutile will be tan or brown, the ilmenite will be black or dark brown.

US4158041A Separation of ilmenite and rutile Google

This invention relates to a process for separating rutile and ilmenite from ilmenite leach tails and is effected by treating the leach tails from an acidic leach to a flotation step whereby gangue is separated from the unreacted ilmenite and rutile. The latter is then roasted at an elevated temperature in a hydrous atmosphere to convert the ilmenite to a magnetic material.

Ilmenite an overview ScienceDirect Topics

T. Smijs, S. Pavel, in Nanoengineering, 2015 2.1 Manufacturing. Ilmenite (FeTiO 3) and rutile (TiO 2) are the most important ores used as raw material for TiO 2.Although natural rutile contains a high amount of TiO 2 with low level of impurities, the mineral is becoming scarce and thus more costly. Consequently, ilmenite is currently favored despite its relatively low TiO 2 content

Rutile mineral Britannica

Rutile, the most abundant of three naturally occurring forms of titanium dioxide (TiO 2; see also anatase; brookite).It forms red to reddish brown, hard, brilliant metallic, slender crystals, often completely surrounded by other minerals. Rutile is a commercially important titanium mineral, although most titanium dioxide is produced from ilmenite.

The presence of the minor lenses of rutile 10 to 200 μm thick within ilmenite, typically surrounded by hematite, is related to late oxidation. The ore-forming magmas evolved under conditions essentially closed to oxygen, with preferential incorporation of Fe 3+ into the early-crystallized ilmenite, which was stabilized by cocrystallization of

Difference between Ilmenite sand and rutile sand

Ilmenite is a black colored heavy ore of iron and titanium, FeTiO3 (or FeO.TiO2). It is closely related to rutile. Material of up to 15% iron and other contaminants (and therefore 85% titanium) is called rutile whereas material of over 15% is called ilmenite (in reality ilmenite can contain up to 40% iron).

These textures indicate rutile grow from ilmenite breakdown (Fig. 2). As the content of Ti is higher in rutile than in ilmenite (100 wt.% TiO 2 in rutile vs.~53 wt.% TiO 2 in ilmenite), the physical volume once occupied by ilmenite is not entirely filled by rutile (Fig. 2).

Ilmenite Wikipedia

Ilmenite, also known as manaccanite, is a titanium-iron oxide mineral with the idealized formula FeTiO 3.It is a weakly magnetic black or steel-gray solid. From a commercial perspective, ilmenite is the most important ore of titanium. Ilmenite is the main source of titanium dioxide, which is used in paints, printing inks, fabrics, plastics, paper, sunscreen, food and cosmetics.

Sep 05, 2017 Rutile, ilmenite, and zircon are often mined simultaneously. The ilmenite is converted to rutile if the titanium dioxide content is high enough and most of the iron can be smelted out. From there, some purer rutile is refined into pure white titanium dioxide through a chlorination process, producing titanium chloride (TiCl 4 ) .
