Gypsum processing plant

Processing of gypsum consists of crushing and grinding the ore to liberate gypsum-bearing particles, concentrating the gypsum by separating the particles from the waste material, and pelletizing the gypsum concentrate. Breaking is the first step in processing crude gypsum and consists mostly of crushing and grinding.

Before grinding, the gypsum ore is dry-crushed in up to six stages, depending on the hardness with the gypsum ore. One particular or two stages of crushing may possibly be performed at the mine before shipping the raw material for the processing facility. Gyratory crushers are generally employed for major crushing, and cone crushers are used for secondary and tertiary fine crushing. Intermediate vibrating screens get rid of undersize material from the feed towards the subsequent crusher and enable for closed-circuit operation of the fine crushers. Following crushing, the size in the material is additional reduced by wet grinding in rod mills or ball mills. The rod and ball mills are also in closed circuit with classification systems for example cyclones. An option to crushing is always to feed some coarse ores straight to wet or dry semiautogenous or autogenous grinding mills (utilizing larger pieces from the gypsum ore to grind/mill the smaller pieces), then to pebble or ball mills. Ideally, the liberated particles of iron minerals and barren gangue must be removed from the grinding circuits as soon because they are formed, with larger particles returned for additional grinding.
