potash ores desliming

Most potash products are concentrated by flotation, selective dissolution of the gangue minerals, or precipitation of the mineral from hot brine. The majority of sylvinite ores, mixtures of KCl and NaCl, mined in New Mexico, are processed in grinding, desliming, sylvite flotation, and drying circuits to produce directly marketable KCl fertilizer.

The potash ores are the main raw material used to produce potash and compound fertilizers and other chemicals. The potash ore generally consists of sylvite (KCl), halite (NaCl – the rock forming mineral) containing the inclusions of carnalite, anhydrite and silicate and carbonate (insoluble residue).
