What is Copper Ore


Copper ore is a collection of copper sulfides or oxides and other minerals. Reacts with sulfuric acid to produce blue-green copper sulfate. In nature, there are more than 280 minerals containing copper, mainly 16 types. Among them, natural copper, chalcopyrite, chalcocite, azurite, malachite and other minerals are more common. The world's proven copper reserves are approximately 600 million tons. The copper ore has been converted into a copper concentrate or a copper ore with a higher copper grade. Copper concentrate must be refined by smelting to become refined copper and copper products.

The use of copper ore


1. Electrical Industry:

The electrical and electronic industries are the areas where copper is used most, accounting for more than half of the total consumption, for the production of cables and wires, motors and transformers, switches, manufacturing of industrial valves and fittings, meters, plain bearings, molds, heat exchangers and pumps.

2.Chemical industry:

Widely used in the manufacture of vacuum, distillation pot, brewing pot and so on.

3.National defense industry:

Can be used to make bullets, shells, guns and other parts.

4.Construction industry:

Can be used for the production of a variety of pipes, pipe fittings, and decorative devices.

5.Medical industry:

Medical proves copper has a strong anti-cancer function and bactericidal effect.


Copper ore milling process


The composition of copper ore raw materials


Copper Ore Powder Making Equipment Selection Program

Fineness20-300 mesh1250 mesh
ModelVertical mill or Raymond mill

Stage 1: Crushing of raw materials

The material is crushed by the crusher to the fineness that can enter the mill(15mm-50mm).

Stage 2: Grinding

The crushed small pieces of material are sent to the storage hopper through the elevator,and then sent to the grinding chamber of the mill evenly and quantitatively through the feeder for grinding.

Stage 3:Classification

Through classification, the coarse powder will return to main mill to grind again.

Stage 4:Collection of finished products

The powder that meets the fineness enters the dust collector through the pipeline with the air flow for separation and collection, and the collected finished powder is sent to the finished product silo by the conveying device through the discharge port, and then is packaged uniformly.
