Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) Production and Manufacturing Process TiO2 is produced from either ilmenite, rutile or titanium slag. Titanium pigment is extracted by using either sulphuric acid (sulphate process) or chlorine (chloride route). The sulphate process employs simpler technology than the chloride route and can use lower grade, cheaper ores.
Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania / t aɪ ˈ t eɪ n i ə /, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium, chemical formula TiO 2.When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white, Pigment White 6 (PW6), or CI 77891.
Titanium dioxide containing feed stock is subjected to high temperature carbo chlorination to produce titanium tetra chloride, which is thereafter converted to titanium dioxide by oxidation.This project involves the studying and collecting all preliminary information required for Titanium dioxide manufacture, generating mass and energy balances for the plant, designing the various equipment used in the plant and estimating the cost involved in setting up the plant.
Titanium Dioxide Pigment Production Process Titanium pigment is extracted by using either sulphuric acid (sulphate process) or chlorine (chloride route). The sulphate process employs simpler technology than the chloride route. The chloride route requires the construction of a chloralkali unit and a higher automation control system.
Titanium Dioxide-TiO2 – Manufacturing process of Titanium Dioxide : Manufacture takes place by either the sulfate process or the chloride process and the main materials include ilmenite (FeO/TiO2), naturally occurring rutile, or titanium slag.
The plant in Bahia is located on the northern coast of the state, close to Arembepe, and 20 km from Salvador, in an area of 837-hectares. It is the only integrated plant for TiO 2 in South America, and it produces the titanium dioxide pigment via the sulfate process, which uses sulfuric acid in order to extract the TiO 2 from the mineral.
