A Fundamental Study of the Breakage of Gibbsite and Smelter Grade Alumina (2015–2018)

Abstract:
This project aims to develop a fundamental understanding on the cracking of gibbsite and smelter grade alumina, thus providing useful guidance for the alumina refineries to control the particle size distribution of the smelter grade alumina. This addresses an important issue in alumina refineries in term of providing high quality product for the downstream aluminium smelter.
