2014-5-30 · The semi-quantitative analysis of salt cake samples suggests that the dominant aluminum minerals in the salt cake samples were aluminum (Al), aluminum oxide (Al 2 O 3, Al 2.67 O 4), aluminum nitride (AlN) and its oxides, spinel (magnesium aluminum oxide, Al 2 MgO 4) and elpasolite (K 2 NaAlF 6). The presence of these aluminum species raises some concerns about exposing SAP salt cake

Recovery of valuable products from hazardous aluminum ...

2018-3-1 · It can be observed that exposing aluminum dross and salt cakes to alkaline conditions lead to leaching of aluminum and salts, along with the formation of alumina in the residue. Depending on the leachant used, valuable products like AlOOH, Al(OH) 3 , Al 2 O 3 and Al 2 (OH) 5 Cl can be produced, avoiding generation of harmful gases like NH 3 .

One major obstacle is the reaction between the AlN present in the dross and the aqueous phase, which can lead to the emission of NH 3 gas, posing a serious environmental problem. In the current work, a ...

Aluminum Dross Furnace Salt Slags Processing

2017-5-31 · Screening of the slurry yields an aluminum-rich fraction that can be returned to the dross furnace. The remaining slurry is vacuum filtered, yielding a clear brine solution and an aluminum oxide filter cake. Evaporation of the clear filtrate produces a high-purity fluxing salt for reuse in the dross

2012-11-1 · Salt cake is a mixture of aluminum oxides and aluminum nitrides, metal and salts (mainly NaCl and KCl, with small amounts of MgCl2 and CaCl2). The salt cake is a growing environmental problem. It is proving very difficult to dispose in the Europe and is regarded as hazardous waste. The reason is that when saltcake gets wet it gives of gases, e ...
