China was excluded from statistics because its industry produced large tonnages of nickel pig iron in addition to a spectrum of conventional ferronickel grades, for an estimated combined output of 590,000 t gross weight The nickel content of individual Chinese products varied from about 16% to as much as 80%, depending upon customer end use
Hydro-Pyro Integration in the processing of Nickel Laterites Authors: Anne Oxley a, b and Dr Nic Barcza c , These low Ni grades are typical of nickel pig iron (NPI) that has grown significantly as a , Other than the hybrid Caron process the only operating hydrometallurgical process for nickel laterites are
Nickel pig iron (NPI) production is a new promising process, although it was firstly developed about 50 years ago but it has not been commercially used until some Chinese pig iron producers changed their production methods into NPI production Chinese NPI production was
Nickel pig iron (NPI) is a low grade ferronickel invented in China as a cheaper alternative to pure nickel for the production of stainless steel The production process of nickel pig iron utilizes laterite nickel ores instead of pure nickel sold on the world market The alternative was developed as a response to high price of pure nickel
Nickel content in the 200 Series steels is between 0 - 6% As can be seen, these nickel contents are compatible with the nickel content range of nickel pig iron which could be the starting material for that purpose 24 Reference prices In order to check the feasibility of the blast furnace process, it is advisable to consider as a reference
We have set up a team with hundreds of technical engineers to resolve a series of problems during project consultation, on-site surveys, sample analysis, program design, installation, commissioning and maintenance guidance.
