Lead and Zinc Smelting
Lead and zinc can be produced pyrometal- lurgically or hydrometallurgically, depending on the type of ore used as a charge. In the pyromet- allurgical process, ore concentrate containing lead, zinc, or both is fed, in some cases after sin- tering, into a primary smelter. Lead concentra- tions can be 50–70%, and the sulfur...Read More

Zinc smelting - Wikipedia
Zinc smelting is the process of converting zinc concentrates (ores that contain zinc) into pure zinc. Zinc smelting has historically been more difficult than the smelting of other metals, e.g. iron, because in contrast, zinc has a low boiling point. At temperatures typically used for smelting metals, zinc is a gas that will escape from...Read More
Lead smelting - Wikipedia
Plants for the production of lead are generally referred to as lead smelters. Primary lead production begins with sintering. Concentrated lead ore is fed into a sintering machine with iron, silica, limestone fluxes, coke, soda ash, pyrite, zinc, caustics or pollution control particulates. Smelting uses suitable reducing substances...Read More
