The Bayer Process is the most economic means of obtaining alumina from bauxite Other processes for obtaining alumina from metal ores are also in use in some refineries particularly in China and Russia although these make up a relatively small percentage of global production The process ... As a leading global manufacturer of crushing equipment, milling equipment,dressing equipment,drying equipment and briquette equipment etc. we offer advanced, rational solutions for any size-reduction requirements, including quarry, aggregate, grinding production and complete plant plan.
May 08 2014 · PROCESS DESCRIPTION ALUMINA REFINING The bauxite ore contains aluminum trihydrate AlOH3 The reaction is firstly driven in the sodium aluminate NaAlO2 direction by the addition of caustic soda NaOH to bauxite Bauxite residues are then removed leaving the process liquid termed “green liquor”Further Details
Bauxite mining requires relatively low energy inputs compared to other steps in the aluminium production process – with less than 15 kilograms of fuel oil mainly in the form of diesel for haul trucks and less than 5 kWh of electricity consumed per tonne of bauxite extracted The bauxite refining process requires significantly higher energy primarily in the form of heat and steam natural gas coalFurther Details
Mining and Refining – Process World Aluminium Unlike the base metal ores bauxite does not require complex processing because most of the bauxite mined is of an acceptable grade Ore quality can be improved by relatively simple and inexpensive processes for removing clay known as “beneficiation” which include washing wet screeningFurther Details
Luckily bauxite is in no shortage experts estimate that the world has centuries worth of bauxite reserves available Alumina Alumina or aluminum oxide Al 2 O 3 – the material resulting from the Bayer Process – is a chemical compound that can be refined to produce aluminum Refining AluminaFurther Details

Bauxite Crushing Process We know that mining is the most critical one is the crushing link And the effect of crushing the ore directly determines the efficiency But some irrational exploitation and backwardness crushing screening and other means of production led to a further waste of bauxiteFurther Details
