User guidelines for waste and by-product materials in pavement construction. Nickel distribution between slag and Fe‐Ni alloy increased with higher oxygen potential showing a slope of 1/2. (2011). endstream endobj startxref When cooled, the molten slag converts to a rocklike or granular material. In this section the technical properties of nonferrous slags (such as lead, nickel, and copper slag) that determine its use in construction materials are discussed. Three steel slag samples and two air-cooled nickel slag samples were used in the preliminary expansion force test and autoclave disruption test. The use of pet-coke in the feed fuel mixtur e accounts for relatively high contents of Ni in the Puertollano IGCC slag. It is at ~25 years of age. Therefore, this test can provide an approximate assessment and indication of long-term stability of slag aggregate particles due to free magnesium and water reaction. If slag is not removed in these type of application, then crevices and accelerated corrosion can result. It crushes to angular particles but has a smooth and glassy texture. The embodied energy of AAC pastes is 1.20–1.25 GJ/t, and the CO2 emissions is 0.21–0.22 t CO2/t when the blending ratio increases from 0% to 60%. PCC cylinders were prepared using nickel slag samples as the coarse aggregate of concrete. Membranes offer high specific surface area and nitrate removal efficiencies, but they have high operating costs. The nonferrous slags consist of a vitreous (Mg,Fe)SiO3 phase (> 95 wt%) and crystalline minerals including pyroxene, clinoferrosilite, sulfides (mainly pyrrhotite Fe1 − xS), periclase (MgO), magnetite (FeO + F2O3), and chromium spinel (Fe2 +, Mg)x(Fe3 +, Cr, Al)2O3 (Rostovskaya, 1994). The two air-cooled slag samples were divided into four size fractions: passing 19.0 mm (3/4 in.) S.A. LARCO, slag is produced after treatment in electric-arc furnace (EAF) that contains 0.10 to 0.20 % Ni. Therefore, researchers have tended to focus their investigations on the larger-volume waste materials. Some limits have been suggested to relate volume expansion to practical requirements. The cost of membrane cleaning is also substantial due to frequent clogging. Denitrification rates of up to 5.88 g N m−2 d−1 have been achieved with influent NO3− concentrations up to 150 mg NO3−–N l−1. Slag from SLN process is mainly constitued of glossy magnesium silicate structure, Forsterite ((Mg,Fe)2SiO4) and Enstatite ((Mg,Fe)SiO3). Journal of Mining and Metallurgy B: Metallurgy, 49(1), 9-12. Dissolution of Valuable Metals from Nickel Smelter Slags by Means of High Pressure Oxidative Acid Leaching, Canada: University of Toronto. Because of the high temperature of pyrometallurgical process, the HMNS is much less active than a normal MgO-based expansive agent, and thus will not trigger the volume stability problem of fly ash–based AAC. Rangan, B. V. (2010). In terms of chemical compositions, nickel slag is very siliceous that may contain up to 50–55% silica and has high magnesium content. Nickel-Titanium Alloys. Table 3.4. Where the uranium content of the original ore is sufficiently high to the level of commercial exploitation, additional treatment and processing of tailings should take place using hydrometallurgy (mainly acid leaching) to recover uranium concentrates. Liquidus in the nickel laterite smelting system. 2. Alex et al.86 studied the influence of the grinding atmosphere (e.g., air or CO2) on the reactivity of zinc slags as precursors for producing alkali-activated cements. So a nickel is made of some nickel, but mostly, a nickel is made of copper. Hot-mix asphalt that contains nickel slag aggregate—Laboratory evaluation of use in highway construction. 55% nickel-titanium alloy (UNS N01555) (also known as Nitinol) has shape-memory properties. Granulated nickel slag is essentially an angular, black, glassy slag “sand” with most particles in the size range of − 2 mm (No. Accelerated laboratory testing was completed on the Marshall and Superpave HMA mixtures with the use of an APA to further assess their performance characteristics. Fig. After visual examination and petrographic analysis, a certain number (eg, 100 or 50) of slag particles from each size fraction are chosen and washed, and then placed into an autoclave to be treated for 1–3 h. The ratio of the number of slag particles cracked, powdered, or containing visually observed cracks after treatment to the total number of slag particles selected is defined as the particle-disruption ratio R. It is generally agreed that autoclave testing can accelerate the hydration of free lime and especially periclase, which has slow hydration rate. Depending on the production process, the quantity of slag per produced quantity of metal can vary. Taking into account the great quantity of slag produced per year, the recovery of nickel from the EAF slag will add benefits to the entire process. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. This slag contains less than 0,1% Ni. T. Kovacs, ... R. Doherty, in Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials in Construction, 2017. The utilization of nickel slag has attracted much attention due to its high-content of valuable elements. The laboratory work consisted of sample preparation, crushing and blending of large, bulk samples of AC nickel slag. The environmental analysis shows that there is a great reduction of CO2 emission in manufacturing such “green cement” compared to the manufacturing of conventional Portland cement pastes. The transition temperatures can be adjusted through careful control of the composition. Each size fraction is carefully examined visually for signs of deterioration (cracking, disruption, etc.). (iii) Table 12.1. Higher purity copper is then produced by electro-refining (Cooper, 2005). The blending of HMNS can provide a large number of silicate ingredients for the fly ash–based AAC, and thus the Si/Al ratio of the gel phase increases with HMNS content. In this test, slag samples are separated into several particle size fractions. Zinc slags have also been used in producing hybrid cements comprising 12 wt.% Portland clinker and 88 wt.% BFS plus zinc slag,87 which presented comparable performance to that of conventional Portland cements when exposed to 0.1 N HCl, sodium sulfate or seawater. The gradation analyses were carried out in accordance with the ASTM C136 test method for sieve analysis of fine and coarse aggregate. FHWA-RD-97-148. Two nickel slags, based on different cooling processes (ie, AC slag and emergency pit (EP) slag), were selected for this study. In addition to silica and carbon, iron can be added in the furnace, which combines with phosphorus to form ferrophosphorus. A lot of information regarding the radiological properties of nonferrous slags is included in the IAEA Safety Report Series 49, 2006. Uranium and thorium may be present in significant quantities in the copper minerals. Differences in the kinetics of reaction of the activated zinc slags were identified, depending on the grinding atmosphere, so that longer induction periods were identified for the slag milled in air compared to that of slag milled in CO2. 12.12. It contains 0.35% carbon and 3.5% nickel in its composition. Investigators focus their attention on gas-permeable membranes because they can act as both hydrogen diffuser and biofilm carrier. HMNS particles can work as microaggregates in AAC binders. Specifically, for the copper production partitioning of 210Pb and 210Po from uranium occurs into the copper concentrate during the smelting process. %%EOF that for every ton of copper 2.2 ton of slag is produced (Gorai and Jana, 2003). (2011), From NORM by-products to building materials, Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials in Construction, Alternative inorganic binders based on alkali-activated metallurgical slags, Sustainable and Nonconventional Construction Materials using Inorganic Bonded Fiber Composites, Zinc slag production follows a comparable process to that described above for copper and. Table 1 Chemical composition of nickel slag (mass fraction, %) Fetotal FeO Ni Cu Co SiO2 ��F�T�p�mD�V�8"F3"�g8��3�(a���Xπ��PMkЗ9Cc9K��^3"�8/��z6�(fp�(�О�r�c�. estimated that 220–370 kg blast-furnace slag is produced per ton of produced iron (Proctor et al., 2000). Activity concentrations of 226Ra, 232Th, and 40K in nonferrous slag. Gas-permeable membranes are mainly composite membrane (e.g., sandwich structure), polypropylene, polyurethane, polysulfone, polyvinyl chloride, platinum-cured silastic, and silicone-coated ferro-, presents a sample of test results of autoclave disruption tests on. the chemical composition of furnace nickel slag . Compared with copper slag, it contains less iron, lime, and alumina. The I-index calculation is based on European Commission 1999; Radiation Protection 112; Radiological Protection Principles Concerning the Natural Radioactivity of Building Materials; and Directorate-General, Environment, Nuclear Safety and Civil Protection. George C. Wang, in The Utilization of Slag in Civil Infrastructure Construction, 2016. These elements . The operating cost of membrane reactors is a major problem as they have high energy consumption and replacement membranes are costly. Hot-mix asphalt that contains nickel slag aggregate—Laboratory evaluation of use in highway construction. For instance, the precipitation of mineral solids during the denitrification process may have a long-term negative impact on the operation of a hollow fiber MBR, which increases its operating cost. 10 sieve) to + 0.150 mm (No. Three steel slag samples were tested in the expansion force testing apparatus until the readings maintain stable. (2011). It is more porous, with lower specific gravity and higher absorption, than air-cooled nicked slag. The concrete specimens have shown high strength and acceptable volumetric stability. From the results presented in Table 12.3, the disruption ratios for all samples are zero. Table 6.11. Particle-disruption ratio has been proposed as a criterion and a test procedure incorporated in the deduction of a usability criterion for slag use (Wang, Wang, & Gao, 2010). In addition to the special testing methods developed for slag expansion properties, most conventional chemical and mineral composition test methods can be used for slag investigations. show that nickel and copper are finely disseminated in the iron silicate matrix, which makes the enrichment of nickel and copper difficult. (ii) Aluminum oxide (Al 2 O 3) content in steel slag exists in solid solution. A complete composition and characteriza tion of the slag produced are reported elsewhere [5]. Since the iron content might strongly affect the alkaline activation of such slags, a so-called quality index (K) has been introduced (Krivenko et al., 1984): According to this quality index, nonferrous slags can be classified into three types as shown in Table 7.23 (TU 67–648-84, 1984). Optimization of slag Lead, lead-zinc, and zinc slag are formed during pyrometallurgical treatment of the sulfide ores. As many research results indicated, the strength-related properties of the steel slag concrete are competitive to natural aggregate concrete. Expansion forces determined for the steel slag samples are shown in Table 12.2. Thus, membrane selection is a critical factor for the performance of this technology. (3) The unit weight of nickel slag is somewhat higher than that of conventional aggregate. The chemical composition of nickel slag is presented in Table 3.3. As a part of these efforts, this work focuses on whether magnetite crystals, obtained from nickel slag via molten oxidation, magnetic separation, and ball-milling can be used as a microwave absorber. (12.21). Ultrablast, a nickel slag, is a high density disposable abrasive for general purpose usage, including shipyards, bridges and general industrial blast cleaning. Hollow fiber membrane is the most common type of membrane used as it has lower space requirements than other types of membranes and can achieve high performances. h�bbd```b``V�3@$�z�>����`�D���9`]G��J0{ �=L��Ԁu��H�h�sH2v�ز'@$#��?�#�.�iH�g�{�@� �zb Dealing with non-ferrous slags, including copper, nickel and phosphorus slags, a report of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA, 2012) states that the use of these high-stability and load-bearing capacity slags would generally exceed the relevant requirements of specifications for construction of embankments and fill, and thereby these materials can provide good load transfer to weaker subgrades. An industrial solid-waste HMNS generated by pyrometallurgical production of nickel is attempted in the manufacture of fly ash–based AACs through an alkali activation technique. The concretes obtained by using such cements show low heat evolution, high-freeze-thaw resistance, high-abrasion resistance and can assure nuclear radiation protection. These include (i) X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis; (ii) scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis; (iii) energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS, EDX, or XEDS); (iv) gamma-ray spectroscopy; (v) DTA; and (vi) autoclave treatment. This production is accompanied by large amounts of copper-nickel slag discharge and accumulation and thus has become an urgent concern [ 1 Washington, DC: FHWA; Wang, G., Thompson, R., & Wang, Y. ... reviewed along with the relationsip between slag composition, slag-matte separation and metal losses to slag. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. or its licensors or contributors. as shown in the T able 1. The metal composition of a nickel is 75% copper and 25% nickel.
