In terms if theory, ores containing Fe element or iron compound are called iron ore. However, in terms of industry or commerce, iron ore is different from manganese ore and it should not only contain Fe but also the Fe element is valuable.
- Magnetite is a ferric magnetic mineral with chemical formula Fe3O4, one of several iron oxides and a member of the spinal group. The chemical IUPAC name is iron(II,III) oxide and the common chemical name ferrous-ferric oxide. The formula for magnetite may also be written as FeO·Fe2O3, which is one part wetsuit (FeO) and one part hematite (Fe2O3). This refers to the different oxidation states of the iron in one structure, not a solid solution.
- Hematite is also a ferric whose main gradient is Fe2O3. It is dull-red and the most common iron compound. During to the different formations, hematite is divided into Red hematite, Secular hematite, micaceous hematite and Red Ocher, etc.
- Limonite is an ore consisting in a mixture of hydrated iron(III) oxide-hydroxide of varying composition. The generic formula is frequently written as FeO(OH)·nH2O, although this is not entirely accurate as limonite often contains a varying amount of oxide compared to hydroxide.
- Siderite is a mineral composed of iron carbonate FeCO3. It takes its name from the Greek word sideros, “iron”. It is a valuable iron mineral, since it is 48% iron and contains no sulfur or phosphorus. Both magnesium and manganese commonly substitute for the iron. Siderite has Moh’s hardness of 3.5-4, a specific gravity of 3.8, a white streak and a vitreous or pearly luster.
In iron ore mining, miner usually choose a complete iron ore crushing plant for metallurgy. At present, the most popular iron ore production line consists of two jaw crushers. After beening crushed, the material will be transported for the magnetic separator, and then into the ball mill for grinding.
Iron ore crusher is the crushing plant to resize and pulverize iron ore into mm size particles. As almost all of the iron ore that is mined is used for making steel and the raw iron itself is not hard, Vipeak iron ore crusher meet the requirements of iron ore sand making with high capacity and long service time.
Vipeak holds a leading position in crushing technology with thousands of crushers installed since the inception of the Vipeak brand.

These iron ore crushers have been operating successfully in some of the world’s harshest conditions for decades. This long operating life can be attributed to the robust design that Vipeak still utilizes to this day.
Among the largest iron ore producing nations are Russia, Brazil, China, Australia, India and the USA. There are large iron ore mines in countries mentioned above like Hamersley Basin in Western Australia, Lake Superior Region in North America, Transvaal Region in South Africa, Krivoy Rog Region in the Ukraine and Minas Gerais Region in Brazil. Crushers are widely used in these iron ore mines and other iron ore mines
