  • Patent number: 5869020
    Abstract: Process for the production of aluminium hydroxide by digesting bauxite with alkali solution and precipitating aluminium hydroxide from the digestion solution, comprising:a combining bauxite and alkali solution having a caustic concentration of at least 180 grams per liter expressed as sodium carbonate and digesting partly the bauxite in the combined product in a first digestion step at relatively low temperature,b separating reaction product obtained in step a into a liquid phase and a solids/liquid slurry,c combining liquid phase and solids/liquid slurry obtained in step b and digesting the combined product in a second digestion step at relatively high temperature,d releasing heat from the reaction product obtained in step c to preheat liquid phase obtained in step b,e separating the reaction product obtained in step d into a supersaturated sodium aluminate solution and undissolved material,f precipitating aluminium hydroxide from the supersaturated sodium aluminate solution obtained in step e and separating

  • Patent number: 5279645
    Abstract: An improved process for the removal of organic matter from bauxite ore containing gibbsite comprises heating the ore under roasting conditions including a roasting temperature of from about 400.degree. C. to about 600.degree. C. with oxygen-containing roasting gas having a moisture content of less than 1% by volume water until the water of crystallization of the alumina present in the treated product is less than 0.5 mole per mole of alumina.
