Calcined Bauxite

Product characteristics

Calcined bauxite is a product of raw bauxite calcination which mainly consists of aluminum hydroxide. Calcination takes place in temperature 1650-1700oC in a shaft or rotary kiln. Rotary kiln bauxite has better characteristics than shaft kiln bauxite, in particular higher content of Al2O3, lower porosity and bulk density.

Specification
Shaft kiln bauxite:

  • Al2O3 min 85%
  • Bulk density: 2,86 g/cm3

Rotary kiln bauxite:

  • Al2O3 min 86%
  • Bulk density: 3,18 g/cm3

Packaging: 1000 kg bulk bags

Calcined bauxite due to its high fireproofness is ideal for refractory, metallurgy, foundry and steel industry.
