Achieving increased productivity and lower total cost of ownership in the Alumina Industry

Alumina

The refining of alumina from bauxite is the first step in the production of aluminium and requires great effort in terms of manpower and energy consumption. This white paper discusses the benefits of using customised filter fabric to improve refinery energy efficiency and reduce the impact of scaling, increasing substantially liquor productivity.

The Bayer Process is the principal industrial means of refining bauxite to produce alumina and the most common process used today. The main objectives of alumina mines in Australia are to have new refineries that operate at lower costs in order to keep the aluminium industry competitive. They need also to manage bauxite residue in such a way that promotes/encourages use as a product and a resource for other industries and for all remaining residue to be stored in an environmentally acceptable form.

This white paper discusses the benefit of using customised filter fabrics, in all the main types of equipment used in alumina plant that will help to deliver outstanding filtration results.
