iron and nickel in ferronickel processing

General Introduction to Nickel

ferronickel is also called nickel containing pig iron and is the alloy of nickel and iron, and is produced by nickel laterite ore through pyrometallurgy and sintering, the nickel content in ferronickel is from 5% to 30%, and it is classified into high nickel pig iron, medium nickel pig iron and low nickel pig iron per nickel ,...

Nickel processing

Nickel processing - Nickel processing - Extraction and refining: The extraction of nickel from ore follows much the same route as copper, and indeed, in a number of cases, similar processes and equipment are used The major differences in equipment are the use of higher-temperature refractories and the increased cooling required to accommodate the higher operating temperatures in nickel ....
