The current extraction procedure and equipment used for processing, limits the Lumps production ratio to 23% max. Attaining a majority ratio in providing lumps to the customers than fines will increase revenue and attract new bidders to the vedanta iron ore.
In the Iron Ore Extraction process, the ratio of lumps (>10mm in size) is very less when compared to fines(Powdered ore) (<10mm in size) in the output. There is a need for a solution that can integrate into any of the existing processes (Crushing/Handling) of Iron Ore extraction to increase the percentage of lumps in the final output. This as a result will further increase profits to Vedanta as lumps are sold at a higher price in comparison with fines. Currently lumps form only 23% of the total processed ore. ROM (Run of Mine) is fed into the series of crushers and screens to generate Lumps & Fines product.
