Extractive Metallurgy of Copper by William G.I. Davenport, Matthew King, Mark Schlesinger, A.K.

By William G.I. Davenport, Matthew King, Mark Schlesinger, A.K. Biswas

This new version has been generally revised and up-to-date because the third variation released in 1994. It includes an excellent better intensity of commercial info, focussing on how copper steel is extracted from ore and scrap, and the way this extraction may be made extra effective. sleek excessive depth smelting methods are offered intimately, particularly flash, Contop, Isasmelt, Noranda, Teniente and direct-to-blister smelting. massive realization is paid to the regulate of SO2 emissions and manufacture of H2SO4. contemporary advancements in electrorefining, fairly chrome steel cathode know-how are tested. Leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning are evaluated including their impression upon optimizing mineral source usage. The ebook demonstrates how recycling of copper and copper alloy scrap is a crucial resource of copper and copper alloys. Copper quality controls is additionally mentioned and the ebook contains a massive part on extraction economics. every one bankruptcy is by way of a precis of options formerly defined and gives prompt additional examining and references.
