Effect of Milling Method on Chromite Surface Composition and Sintering


Milling of chromite concentrate is studied in equipment with different milling methods and energy intensity. It is established that milling gives rise to a different chromite fine particle surface structure, different nature and amount of microdeformation within particles, and different chemical activity. Milling has almost no effect on material phase composition. Within a layer more than 50 Å there is magnesium silicate entirely screening chromium spinelid at a chromite particle surface subjected to fine milling.
