Furnace To Smelt Copper Ore

Głogw Copper Smelter and refinery

General InformationThe Głogw Copper Smelter comprises two process lines – Głogw I smelter and Głogw II smelter. Both use the technology of single-stage flash smelting of copper concentrates directly to blister copper with an approximately 98.5% Cu content. The final product is cathode copper with a Cu content of 99.99%, registered on the London Metal Exchange as grade A in

Ancient Metallurgy

Smelting is the basic process by which one produces workable metal from metal ores. The minerals in copper ores are reduced to copper through mixing carbon with the ore and heating the combination to about 1,100C. (This can be done directly with copper oxide ores. Copper sulphide ores are heated in contact with air first.)
