Zinc Leaching and Purification-Zinc-

Typical process of zinc hydrometallurgy consists of zinc concentrate roasting, calcine leaching, electro-winning, ingot casting and acid-making. Zinc leaching is performed in diluted sulfuric acid system or ammonium system. The leaching acidity, temperature and pressure are regulated to achieve the most optimal zinc leaching rate.
