Titanium is a metallic element that occurs with a number of other mineral deposits and is widely distributed across the Earth's crust. Titanium is known for its high strength to weight ratio and has a low density. It has a metallic white color and is lustrous. It is a refractory metal due to its relatively high melting point, oxidizes immediately upon exposure to air and is on of the few elements that burn in pure nitrogen gas. Extracting titanium is difficult and costly and the most efficient way to produce it is using the Kroll process.

India produces the sixth most titanium in the world at 500 metric tons in 2013. India is home to major rutile deposits which are one of the primary minerals that bear titanium. There are abundant reserves of these deposits in concentrated producing areas, but they feature a lower grade of titanium concentrates than other primary minerals.

Ukraine produces the fifth most titanium in the world at 10,000 metric tons in 2013. The titanium industry consists of ilmenite and rutile production, titanium sponge production at the Zaporozhye Titanium & Magnesium Combine (ZTMK) and titanium ingot production by a few different smaller producers.

Kazakhstan produces the fourth most titanium in the world at 27,000 metric tons in 2013. In eastern Kazakhstan, over the last few years, large titanium ore deposits have been discovered. In recent years Kazakhstan has attracted international attention for its abundance of minerals and metals, with titanium being no exception. In 2010 a South Korean company POSCO announced they were working with UKTMP Kazakhstan to increase titanium production.

Japan produces the third most titanium in the world at 40,000 metric tons in 2013. The Kabasawa mine located by the city of Sendai, in the Tohoku region produces titanium. Japan mainly produces titanium by producing titanium sponge and the Osaka Titanium Technologies Corporation is the world's second largest producer of this product.

Russia produces the second most titanium in the world at 45,000 metric tons in 2013. Three of the largest titanium mines in Russia are the Pudozhsky mine in the Republic of Karelia, the Ruchar mine in the Far Eastern Federal District and the Yugo-Vostochnaya Gremyakha mine in the Murmansk Oblast. In 2010 Russia announced the Titanium Valley, which is a planned special economic zone in Sverdlovsk Oblast to focus on creating titanium products. This SEZ will be headed by the world's largest titanium producer, Russian company VSMPO-AVISMA.

China produces the highest amount of titanium in the world at 100,000 metric tons in 2013, twice as much as Russia and Japan combined. China has found titanium resources across 108 mine fields in 21 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities. Sichuan province is the main titanium producing area in the country, China also has the world's largest titanium reserves, with the main source being from llmenite.

Titanium has many different applications. The common compounds of titanium dioxide, titanium tetrachloride, and titanium trichloride are used in white pigments, smoke screens, and the production of polypropylene. Titanium can be alloyed with many other elements, like iron, aluminum, and more. When alloyed with these other elements, titanium can be used to produce alloys for jet engines, spacecraft, jet engines, jewelry, mobile phones, cars, medical and dental implants and so much more.

KOCHI:The Kerala government has vowed time and again that it will not stop mining the rich mineral deposits along the coastal areas of the state extending from Chavara in Kollam district to Aarattupuzha in Alappuzha district. It is a fact that the rich mineral deposit is a treasure trove that can change the destiny of the state, which has been fighting continued high levels of fiscal and revenue deficits, mounting debt liabilities and high interest payment burden.

However, local resistance and opposition from environmentalists have been hampering the project envisaged to establish a titanium complex in the state. Government officials and politicians are reluctant to speak about the issue fearing a backlash. Titanium is a sunrise sector in the chemical industry. There is a demand for eight lakh tonnes of titanium pigment in the country and we are producing only 40,000 tonnes. The country imports around 7.6 lakh tonnes of titanium pigment a year from China.

If Kerala can tap the growing market for titanium mill products and other value-added products from the beach sand minerals to take advantage of the growing demand in the aerospace, aircraft repair, power generation, shipping and biomedical applications sectors, it can power the state economy and create more employment opportunities, said M P Sukumaran Nair, former chairman of Kerala Minerals and Metals Ltd (KMML).

A detailed survey conducted by Atomic Minerals Directorate had found that the mineral sand deposit between Neendakara and Kayamkulam Bar over a length of 22 km with a width of 225 m was one of the best in the world because of high titanium dioxide content in the mineral ilmenite. The reserve of total heavy mineral in the Chavara barrier beach is 127 million tonnes, while in the northern segment, which extends up to Thottappally in Alappuzha district, the reserve of total heavy mineral sand is 17 million tonnes. According to Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Indian Air Force (IAF) will be spending around $150 billion on aircraft and aero engine in the next 15 years.

In India, most of the titanium processing is in manufacturing pigment-grade titanium dioxide. Kerala government entities, Kerala Minerals and Metals Ltd produces 40,000 tonnes per annum (TPA) rutile-grade titanium, while the Travancore Titanium Products produces 15,000 tonnes of anatase-grade titanium pigment per annum. Two other small capacity plants are also processing titanium in the private sector. The Kerala government in 2018 commissioned a feasibility study to put up a plant to produce titanium mill products and other value-added products from the beach sand minerals, said Sukumaran Nair. The government had formulated an ambitious plan to increase the production of titanium dioxide to 60,000 tonnes and further increase the capacity of Chavara KMML plant to one lakh tonnes per annum. A committee appointed by the government had recommended to increase the capacity of the titanium sponge plant at KMML and start producing titanium metal alloy.

The governments proposed mineral-based titanium complex and its downstream projects will be the biggest industrial development initiative so far undertaken by the state. The performance of Travancore Titanium Products and KMML is illustrative of the profitability of the titanium-based mineral industry. If we opt not to mine it will result in a massive loss to the states economy. We may have to learn lessons from activities of this kind taking place in other fragile zones around the world and work out a coastline environment management plan, he said.

Regarding the local resistance, Sukumaran Nair said the present method of beach sand mining was not environment-friendly. Sea erosion in Chavara area is very high and the authorities should retain the sea barrier through backfilling. Use of heavy equipment for excavating soil should be discouraged. Local people should be employed as permanent workers and provided a handsome salary. The workforce should be integrated with the industry. The mineral sand that gets deposited every day through sea washing can be collected by employing Kudumbasree self-help groups.

The state government has taken a policy decision to discourage export of raw mineral sand and promote export of value-added products. Ilmenite, rutile, zircon and monazite are the major heavy minerals extracted from beach mineral sand. Ilmenite is an important ore from which titanium dioxide pigment, titanium sponge, titanium chloride and titanium metal are made. However, the technology for processing ilmenite is a closed one. India has to source the technology from foreign countries and start processing the mineral sand. The project needs an investment to the tune of around `3,500 crore and the government should explore the possibility of a joint venture to realise the project.

Sukumaran Nair said while the public sector utilities were unable to extract mineral sand due to protests, some mineral sand processing units outside the state are sourcing mineral sand from the state through smuggling. Certain local people are employed by the smugglers to extract mineral sand and ferry it to the barges that reach outer sea. These smuggling lobbies are fuelling the local protest, he said. Industry insiders alleged that many political leaders were hand in glove with the mineral sand smugglers.

Titanium is a rare metal that because of its dispersal and hard to extract. Also a silver-white transition metal. Its features are lightweight, high strength, resistance wet chlorine corrosion. Titanium is found in ore, such as Rutile and Ilmenite.

Extraction of titanium from ore is called the titanium mining process. Two types of titanium process: Gravity separation - Magnetic separation - Flotation, and Gravity separation - Magnetic separation- Electric separation. Related equipment: Jaw crusher, ball mill, magnetic separator, spiral separator, spiral chute, dryer, vibrating feeder, vibrating conveyor, etc.

Titanium processing needs several steps such as crushing, grinding, screening, magnetic separation and drying. 1. Raw ilmenite ore(or Rutile) is sent to jaw crusher by vibrating feeder for primary crusher and secondary crushing. 2. Entering the circular vibrating screen is screened, and the qualified ilmenite is sent to the ball mill for grinding processing. 3. The ground Ilmenite pulp is sent to the spiral separator for classification and washing, The materials which particle size does not meet the requirements need to be returned to the ball mill for further grinding. And the meets are sent to a magnetic separator for magnetic separation processing. 4. The concentrate after the magnetic separator is sent to a dryer to be dried and dehydrated. Then we get the dried concentrate powder material.

The beneficiation process of titanium depends on the nature of the material. Because the density of titanium ore is larger than that of gangue minerals, it can be used for pretreatment or rough selection tailing; magnetic separation method is widely used in the concentrate separation of titanium-containing minerals; when coarse concentrate contains ilmenite, rutile and non-conductive minerals such as zircon, it can be separated by electric separation; flotation method is used for sorting of primary titanium ore, especially for sorting fine-grained titanium ore.

The gravity separation method has received much attention because of its low cost and eco-friendly characteristics. Shaker tables are widely used in ilmenite ore dressing, especially in small mines where a shaker is used to obtain a qualified concentrate. With the shaker process, the grade of ilmenite up to 48.82% and the recovery rate over 76%.

Magnetic separation includes weak magnetic separation and strong magnetic separation. The role of weak magnetic separation is to separate the titanomagnetite remaining in the magnetic separation tailings to facilitate the smooth magnetic separation. The purpose of strong magnetic separation is to discharge qualified tailings, increase the selected grade of titanium flotation, and reduce the amount of titanium flotation. The high-gradient magnetic separator can effectively recover the fine-grained ilmenite in the ore, and can throw away some of the fine mud in the ore, thereby achieving the purpose of rough selection and tailing of the original ore. The ore is treated by a strong magnetic pre-selection process, and the grade is improved, which lays a foundation for the subsequent flotation to obtain the final titanium concentrate. The high gradient magnetic separator can refine the concentrate, which can reduce the grade of re-election concentrate, which is beneficial to improve the recovery rate of re-election and thus improve the recovery rate of the entire titanium mining process concentrator.

Flotation separation of primary titanium-bearing ores is an effective method for recovering fine-grained ilmenite, sometimes used in the selection of coarse concentrates. Before the ilmenite flotation process, select sulphide minerals by flotation machine firstly. The iron ore beneficiation plant mainly uses a mechanical agitated flotation machine. The aeration and agitation of the slurry of the machine are realized by mechanical agitator (rotor and stator group, so-called aerated stirring structure). The agitated agitator of the mechanical agitation flotation machine has pump-like suction characteristics. In addition to self-priming air, it can also self-prime the slurry. mechanical agitation flotation machine has obvious superiority and flexibility in process configuration, has been widely used in the titanium mining process and mineral beneficiation plant.
