Calcined bauxite is one of the principal ore of Aluminum. Calcined bauxite contains hydrous aluminum oxides and aluminum hydroxides, formed through the laterization of aluminous rocks in tropical and subtropical areas .calcined bauxite is obtained by calcining (heating)superior grade bauxite at high temperature (from 85OC to 1600C) .this removes moisture thereby increasing the alumina content. compared to an alumina content of about 57%to 58%in raw bauxite, calcined bauxite has an alumina content of 84%to88%.the heating is carried out in rotary kilns.
calcined bauxite is typically calssified according to its intended commercial application,such as abrasive ,cement ,chemical, metallurgical, and refractory .as raw material for use in high alumina and super duty refratory bricks and shapes ,plastics ,castable refratory, motors, gunning mixes, ramming mixes, abrasive grains and other products.
