Abstract
Because of ecological considerations and the pending worldwide shortage of rutile the Bureau of Mines is investigating the use of chlorination technology in extractive metallurgy. The present paper describes studies using a 16.5-Cm-diam fluidized-bed reactor system designed to dechlorinate ferric chloride by oxygen. The use of low- density ferric chloride feed mixed with recycled ferric oxide, pretreated with a sodium chloride catalyst, produced a usable iron oxide product and chlorine gas.
