How to distinguish reduced lead, recycled lead and lead concentrate is very simple, mainly depends on the raw materials.
First of all, let's talk about "reduced lead"
The main raw material of reduced lead is waste lead. Of course, the sources of waste lead are very diverse. We will not talk about it here. The waste lead recovered through various ways is smelted back to the furnace to obtain reduced lead. The content of Pb usually can reach about 96% to 98%, and it can also become the production raw material of electrolytic lead.
Say "recycled lead"
The main raw material of lead regeneration is used batteries. The amount of lead used in batteries accounts for a large proportion in the consumption of lead, which is just suitable for the production of lead regeneration. In some countries, the amount of recycled lead even accounts for more than half of the total lead production. Recycled lead is mainly produced by fire. For example, when dealing with waste battery, it is usually equipped with 8-15% coke, 5-10% iron filings and a proper amount of lime, soda and other fluxes to melt into crude lead in reverberatory furnace or other furnaces.
Finally, lead concentrate
After a series of economic and reasonable beneficiation processes, the main useful components of lead ore are enriched. It is called concentrate, which is the final product of the beneficiation plant. The content of main useful components in concentrate is called concentrate grade. Some concentrate grades are expressed in weight percentage (such as copper, copper, zinc, etc.) and some in weight ratio (such as gold ore in g / T). Based on this, it can reflect the quality index of concentrate, and it is an important parameter to make the beneficiation process.
After all, is it easier for us to distinguish between reduced lead and recycled lead?
