Pyroprocessing equipment to lithium plant in Australia

FLSmidth has signed a contract for the supply of pyroprocessing and comminution equipment for Tianqi Lithium Australia‘s lithium hydroxide processing plant, which will be located in Kwinana/Western Australia. Tianqi Lithium Industries Inc., which controls a majority stake in the Greenbushes mine, one of the world’s premier producer of lithium concentrate from spodumene, is building a downstream processing plant for lithium hydroxide in Kwinana, 38 km south of Perth. The plant will convert around 161 000 t/a of spodumene concentrate into 24 000 t of lithium hydroxide, for use in the growing global market for lithium ion batteries.

FLSmidth’s pyroprocessing equipment includes a 2-stage cyclone preheater rotary kiln with an indirect rotary cooler, a natural, gas-fired kiln burner and a complete, off-gas handling circuit. The 2-stage preheater rotary kiln represents the state-of-the-art system for facilitating spodumene phase conversion for maximum lithium recovery, while minimising fuel consumption.
