In an integrated process, copper-bearing materials are leached with dilute sulfuric acid and the dilute pregnant leach solution is reacted with ferrous scrap to produce cement copper precipitate containing copper metal, ferrous impurities and normally refractory metal impurities. The raw cement copper is preliminarily treated to separate portions of the ferrous impurities and is then melted ...

Copper Refining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Copper Refining an overview ScienceDirect Topics

In the electrolytic process, copper is electrodeposed to obtain a spongy powder deposit at the cathode rather than a smooth, adherent one. In this feature, it differs from the process of copper refining where a strongly adherent product is desired. Low copper ion concentration and high acid content in the electrolyte favor formation of powder deposits.

Copper Smelting Process Furnaces Used ByProducts and

Modern copper smelters use processed copper ore fed into a flash furnace, typically fired by oxygen which produces blister copper, being further processed in a converter furnace. Molten copper is poured from here into rectangular moulds, the resulting ingots subjected to electrolysis producing a metal of 99.9 purity. Copper can be recycled indefinitely without the base metal being compromised ...

Electrolytic Refining Meaning Electrorefining of Copper

Electrolytic refining is a process of refining a metal mainly copper by the process of electrolysis. As far as the mechanism of the process is concerned, during electrolysis, a large chunk or slab of impure metal is used as the anode with a thin strip of pure metal at the cathode. In this setup, an electrolyte metal salt aqueous solution ...
