The pressure effect on the kinetics of ilmenite reduction in hydrogen

De Vries, Malisja Louella


A new process for ilmenite upgrading in the pigment industry has been proposed. The process involves reduction of ilmenite in hydrogen under pressure. Past research in this field of ilmenite reduction under pressure reveals a lack of understanding of the rates and mechanisms involved. A twin reactor, symmetrical-beam pressurised thermogravimetric microbalance was designed and commissioned by the author. The system enabled the kinetics of hydrogen reduction of ilmenite to be studied at high gas...[Show more]
