Magnetite, or Fe3O4, is a black ferri-magnetic natural iron oxide. This natural aggregate is a member of the spinel group.
LKAB Minerals' customers can be found all over the world and their use of Magnetite differs a lot. We currently supply our natural iron oxide for the following applications:
- Heavy Media Separation
- Ammonia Catalysts
- Aluminothermic Welding
- Slag conditioner
- Foundry sand additive
- Energy storage
All these applications use the special properties of Magnetite such as its purity, density, and high Fe-content.
