A Study of Fluidized Cathode Cementation.
NTIS: PB 295-230 :29 pages
Copper recovery by fluidized cathode cementation on iron was studied in a laboratory-scale rotating drum reactor using minus 325-mesh, spherical copper powder to form the fluidized cathode. The rate of cementation was directly proportional to cupric ion concentration, precipitant surface area, and fluidized cathode area. The activation energy for the process was 5.26 Kcal/mole. Granular activated carbon was as effective as fluidized cathode material.
