Study on Character of Ilmenite Modified by Thermal Treatment
The character of ilmenite was modified by pretreatment, the effect of pre-oxidation temperature and time on structure of ilmenite were investigated by X-ray diffraction(XRD) and Thermo-gravimetric/differential thermal analysis. The results indicated that new microcrystal rutile and FeTiO3·Fe2O3 solid solution were appeared on the surface of mineral below 800°C, but evident rutile crystals and pseudobrookite Fe2O3·TiO2 were appeared above 850°C with the structure of ilmenite disrupting simultaneously. The preoxidation time increased from 15min to 60min, evident microcrystal rutile and FeTiO3·Fe2O3 solid solution were appeared by degrees without structure of ilmenite breaking.
