Tata Steel is already operating a 300 tph fine ore jig iron ore plant there. Patnaik Minerals also followed the pattern and started constructing 100 tph fine ore jigging machine at Joda, Jharkhand. There are different combinations possible in which unit operations can be arranged which include jigging machine as the heart of the beneficiation process.
As a consequence of the more complex beneficiation requirements, there will be a need for modern solutions for iron ore dewatering that are reliable mechanically as well as cost effective and with high capacity per unit at the same time. Conventional vacuum filtration methods have been the most prevalent in fine iron ore dewatering.
