  • Patent number: 10434520
    Abstract: The invention is related to a flotation process using an improved collector to remove alkaline earth metal carbonate impurities from phosphate ores. The flotation feed may be conditioned with the improved carbonate collector at acidic pH, and subjected to a reverse flotation. The cell overflow may be collected as waste in which carbonate minerals dominate, and the cell underflow may be the phosphate concentrate. The collector may be a combination of chemicals, comprising: (1) any kind of fatty acids, either conventional fatty acid, saponified fatty acid, or modified fatty acid; (2) chemicals with sulfonate or sulfate groups, such as dodecylbenzene sulfonic acid (DDBSA) or its salt, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium coco sulfate (SCS), etc.; and (3) phosphorous-bearing chemicals, such as sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP), sodium hexametaphosphate (SFMP), trisodium phosphate (TSP), Tetrasodiumpyrophosphate (TSPP), etc.

  • Publication number: 20190126291
    Abstract: A process of phosphate flotation comprising: pulping phosphate ore with water to about 55% to 75% solids to produce an ore slurry; conditioning the ore slurry with a new reagent scheme to produce a conditioned slurry; subjecting the conditioned slurry to flotation to produce an underflow and an overflow; and collecting the overflow as phosphate concentrate. The new reagent scheme may comprise a combination of fatty acid, fuel oil, and fatty acid soap, and may not comprise a pH modifier. The process may also work effectively at a lower percent solids than conventional reagent schemes.

  • Publication number: 20180355268
    Abstract: Structured composite wood pellets comprising wood pellets with a coating at least partially covering the wood pellets, where the coating reduces the generation of dust/fines of the wood pellet upon impact and/or abrasion. The coating may comprise crude tall oil, distilled tall oil, tall oil pitch, tall oil fatty acids, tall oil heads, non-food use sustainable wax, or a combination thereof. The coating may be located at the surface and/or subsurface of the wood pellets rather than throughout, and may be applied at a rate of less than 1 wt. % of the wood pellets.
