Iron Ore Pellet Plant, Indiana
Project Type: Iron Ore Pellet Plant
Capacities: 15-4,200 TPH
A mining company constructed a new iron ore pellet plant to produce fluxed iron ore pellets for blast furnace operations. Rapat supplied a material handling system to receive iron ore concentrate from railcars and fill a flat storage building. The concentrate was then conveyed through the process, resulting in iron ore pellets. The project was fast-paced and the product was very abrasive and heavy, requiring robust construction. Rapat supplied dozens of belt conveyors, transfer chutes and support structures. The conveyor designs varied from heavy-duty trussed frames, belt feeders, shuttles and drives up to 1,200 horsepower.
