George C. Wang, in The Utilization of Slag in Civil Infrastructure Construction, 2016. Nickel slag is very abrasive and does not lend itself well to grinding. In terms of chemical compositions, nickel slag is very siliceous that may contain up to 50–55% silica and has high magnesium content. If slag is not removed in these type of application, then crevices and accelerated corrosion can result. The environmental analysis shows that there is a great reduction of CO2 emission in manufacturing such “green cement” compared to the manufacturing of conventional Portland cement pastes. Journal of the Transportation Research Board, 2(2208), 1–8. 3. retained 16 mm (5/8 in. (2000), Lavanya et al. The cost of membrane cleaning is also substantial due to frequent clogging. Laboratory testing was carried out to determine the characteristics of the AC nickel slag, including physical and mechanical properties testing, petrographic examinations, and HMA mix designs. ��F�T�p�mD�V�8"F3"�g8��3�(a���Xπ��PMkЗ9Cc9K��^3"�8/��z6�(fp�(�О�r�c�. Compared with copper slag, it contains less iron, lime, and alumina. Fig. Hot-mix asphalt that contains nickel slag aggregate—Laboratory evaluation of use in highway construction. It has shown in tests to provide high productivity improvements. Therefore, this test can provide an approximate assessment and indication of long-term stability of slag aggregate particles due to free magnesium and water reaction. h��Xmo�6�+�2�E��"��4����Q�t�A��D�-��4�~w�$[^ܤ�2�{#�ܑ HMNS particles can work as microaggregates in AAC binders. Lavanya et al. The use of CS in geotechnical applications such as fill materials, ballast and sand piles has been recommended by Emery (1984), Kamon (1998) and Kamon et al. There are no free oxides and the reduced crystalline phase is mainly composed of enstatite and forsterite. (FeS) and pyrrhotite (Fe1-xS) are usually present in both slag and fine slag. PCC cylinders were prepared using nickel slag samples as the coarse aggregate of concrete. It is often difficult to ascertain judicious relationships between test results and practical values. Mix proposition of the concrete containing steel/nickel slag coarse aggregate, Ravindra K. Dhir OBE, ... Chao Qun Lye, in Sustainable Construction Materials: Copper Slag, 2017. Table 7.24. Copper production begins with ore milling and copper separation by flotation in order to produce a concentrate with a copper content of about 30%. (12.21). This study shows a practical model of converting local industrial wastes into greener cement or cement-like products. The concretes obtained by using such cements show low heat evolution, high-freeze-thaw resistance, high-abrasion resistance and can assure nuclear radiation protection. Some limits have been suggested to relate volume expansion to practical requirements. Journal of the Transportation Research Board, 2(2208), 1–8. The specific gravity of air-cooled nickel slag may be as high as 3.5, while the absorption is quite low as 0.37%. The metal composition of a nickel is 75% copper and 25% nickel. Table 7.23. that for every ton of copper 2.2 ton of slag is produced (Gorai and Jana, 2003). Table 12.1. The mix proportions of the concrete are presented in Table 12.4 (Fig. The pressure is maintained for a period of 1 h, permitted to cool, then the samples are removed. Each size fraction is carefully examined visually for signs of deterioration (cracking, disruption, etc.). Information regarding the following types of nonferrous slag can be found here: In Table 6.11 an overview is given of the activity concentrations (226Ra, 232Th, and 40K) reported for different types of nonferrous slags. Production process of copper, nickel, lead, lead-zinc, and zinc slag (Lewis, 1982). The nonferrous slags are molten by-products of high-temperature processes that are used to separate the nonferrous metal from other constituents. Alex et al.86 studied the influence of the grinding atmosphere (e.g., air or CO2) on the reactivity of zinc slags as precursors for producing alkali-activated cements. Hollow fiber membrane is the most common type of membrane used as it has lower space requirements than other types of membranes and can achieve high performances. The amount of nonferrous slag produced in these processes is not as large as ferrous slag. Concrete containing steel slag coarse aggregate after autoclave testing. Optimization of slag The slag had a composition of Co: 0.45%, Cu: 3%, Fe total: 47%, Ni: 3.5%, and S: 3%. A wide variety of nickel slag options are available to you, such as not powder, is powder. The following shows the chemical composition of the slag and chemical characterization by solubilization and donated by the company producing the material. Nickels are actually made mostly of copper. Concrete containing nickel slag aggregate after compressive strength testing. This slag contains less than 0,1% Ni. Nickel slag is mainly introduced, and the chemical composition and preparation of nickel slag powder, and study its physical properties, activity, volume stability and mechanical properties. ); and passing 9.5 mm retained 4.75 mm. Air-cooled nickel slag is brownish-black in color. The main waste materials within this process are the tailings from the flotation stage and the furnace slags from the smelting stage. Ferronickel is a ferroalloy that contains approximately 35% nickel and 65% iron. It is at ~25 years of age. The range of chemical composition of the BOF slag samples (%), Table 12.2. For instance, the precipitation of mineral solids during the denitrification process may have a long-term negative impact on the operation of a hollow fiber MBR, which increases its operating cost. The approximate element composition of this material is as follows: Ingredients Chemical formula Typical % CAS # by weight Iron Oxide Fe 2 O 3 + FeO 30 - 37 1309-37-1 Amorphous Silica SiO 2 (total) 32 - 42 61790-53-2 Aluminum Oxide AL 2 O 3 3 - 10 1344-28-1 Magnesium Oxide MgO 5 - 12 1309-48-4 Calcium Oxide CaO 3 - 6 1305-78-8 Chromium Oxide Cr 2 O For example, for granular road base construction, ≤ 2.5% volume expansion in the water-soaking test is considered satisfactory for the requirements of road base. So a nickel is made of some nickel, but mostly, a nickel is made of copper. 12.12). Nonferrous slags are produced during the recovery and processing of nonferrous metal from primary and secondary raw materials. Disruption test results of nickel slag aggregates.

Compressive strength (MPa) of the alkali-activated nonferrous slag cements hardened in natural conditions vs. quality index and type of alkaline activator, Maria Criado, ... Susan A. Bernal, in Sustainable and Nonconventional Construction Materials using Inorganic Bonded Fiber Composites, 2017, Zinc slag production follows a comparable process to that described above for copper and nickel slags. (2011). 6.7. When cooled, the molten slag converts to a rocklike or granular material. Specifically, for the copper production partitioning of 210Pb and 210Po from uranium occurs into the copper concentrate during the smelting process. Data from Wang, G., Thompson, R., & Wang, Y. (2011). h�bbd```b``V�3@$�z�>����`�D���9`]G��J0{ �=L��Ԁu��H�h�sH2v�ز'@$#��?�#�.�iH�g�{�@� �zb The total volume of pores in the AAC binders turns to be lower and more macropores are formed as the content of HMNS increases. Three steel slag samples and two air-cooled nickel slag samples were used in the preliminary expansion force test and autoclave disruption test. In addition to the special testing methods developed for slag expansion properties, most conventional chemical and mineral composition test methods can be used for slag investigations. The chemical composition of nickel slag is presented in Table 3.3. Prederiy, I. show that nickel and copper are finely disseminated in the iron silicate matrix, which makes the enrichment of nickel and copper difficult. Because of the high temperature of pyrometallurgical process, the HMNS is much less active than a normal MgO-based expansive agent, and thus will not trigger the volume stability problem of fly ash–based AAC. These radionuclides are vaporized at the smelting stage and may accumulate in dusts collected from off gases. The “–” sign in the table indicates that there is no data available. 3.1. It combines with the oxides to form silicates phases. Expansion forces determined for the steel slag samples are shown in Table 12.2. The range of chemical compositions of the slag samples is summarized in Table 12.1. (1984) varied from 0.30 to 0.60, while the crystalline phase content was 1–5 wt%. Expansion force readings for slag samples BOF-1, BOF-2, and BOF-3. as shown in the T able 1. Slag from SLN process is mainly constitued of glossy magnesium silicate structure, Forsterite ((Mg,Fe)2SiO4) and Enstatite ((Mg,Fe)SiO3). The resulting slag contains a high proportion of steel. Then, reduction of the metal ion via the process of smelting is accomplished with the roasted product dissolved in siliceous flux. Expected compressive strength values of the alkali-activated nonferrous slag cements hardened in normal conditions versus quality index and type of alkaline activator used in the process is given in Table 7.24 (Sultanov, 1985). Journal of Mining and Metallurgy B: Metallurgy, 49(1), 9-12. Table 3.4 presents the basic physical and mechanical properties of crushed air-cooled nickel slag. This process is similar to the production of copper and nickel slag, including roasting, smelting, and conversion. Fig. This is a simple test and the information provided by the results is useful. As a part of these efforts, this work focuses on whether magnetite crystals, obtained from nickel slag via molten oxidation, magnetic separation, and ball-milling can be used as a microwave absorber. %%EOF (3) The unit weight of nickel slag is somewhat higher than that of conventional aggregate. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Proctor et al. The MgO addition significantly reduced the solubility of alumina in the slag and changed the primary spinel phase composition. In many stainless steel applications, 75% pure nickel can be used without further purification, depending on the composition of the impurities. It is more porous, with lower specific gravity and higher absorption, than air-cooled nicked slag. Slag nikel merupakan agregat bahan sisa hasil pembuangan dari pembakaran dapur listrik yang dihasilkan oleh PT. estimated that 220–370 kg blast-furnace slag is produced per ton of produced iron (Proctor et al., 2000). Nickel-Titanium Alloys. Vayenas, in Comprehensive Biotechnology (Second Edition), 2011. O. The I-index calculation is based on European Commission 1999; Radiation Protection 112; Radiological Protection Principles Concerning the Natural Radioactivity of Building Materials; and Directorate-General, Environment, Nuclear Safety and Civil Protection. In terms of mineralogical properties, nickel slag, essentially made up of a major vitreous phase concentrated in the smallest particles and of a much lesser crystalline phase, is particularly present in the larger particles. Depending on the production process, the quantity of slag per produced quantity of metal can vary. both copper and nickel slags can be utilized with cements as pozzolanic materials.
