The Manufacturing Plant at KMML comprises the Mineral Separation (MS) Unit and the Titanium dioxide Pigment (TP) Unit.
The MS Unit is where the separation of Ilmenite, Rutile, Leucoxone, Monazite, Silliminite etc from the beach sand takes place, through the various stages in the Wet Concentration Plant, Dryer Plant, Dry Mill, Rutile & Zircon Recovery Plants. The MS Unit employs Gravitational, Magnetic, High tension electrostatic techniques for separation of minerals from the sand.
The TP Unit is where the raw Ilmenite obtained from the MS Unit is taken for further processing, through the various stages in the Ilmenite Beneficiation Plant, Acid Regeneration Plant, Pigment Production Plant, Oxygen Plant & Utility Section. Titanium Dioxide is manufactured here using the chloride route.
