RECOVERY OF ZIRCONIA FROM ZIRCON SANDS

2020-5-21  The process is done in an arc furnace, with the furnace being continuously fed from the top. In order to obtain complete vaporisation of the silicon monoxide and complete conversion of zircon to carbide, an insufficient quantity of carbon is used. The process can be summarised by the following reaction [12]: ZrSi0. 2500°C. 4

Decomposition process of zircon sand concentrate with

2012-8-9  The decomposition process for zircon sand concentrate using mixed base of sodium hydroxide partly replaced by calcium oxide was inrestigated. It is found that the decomposition rate of zircon gradually increased with the increase of the reaction temperature and time. The decomposition rate is over 97% with the conditions that CaO/zircon molar ratio is 0.25 ∼ 0.75 at 800 °C for 1 h.
