Application of response surface methodology and central composite rotatable design for modeling and optimization of sulfuric leaching of rutile containing slag and ilmenite, Article Russian Journal of Non-Ferrous Metals ; Volume 54, Issue 5 , 2013 , Pages 388-397 ; 10678212 (ISSN) ; Halali, M ; Maarefvand, M ; Khatibnczhad, H ; Sharif University of Technology
In this study, application of the Response Surface Methodology and the Central Composite Design (CCD) technique for modeling and optimization of the influence of several operating variables on titanium recovery in a leaching process were investigated. The four main leaching parameters, namely temperature, acid concentration, leaching time and solid to liquid ratio, were changed during-the leaching experiments based on the CCD. A total of 30 leaching experiments were designed and carried out in the CCD method according to software-based designed matrix. According to the results, i.e., titanium recoveries with these four parameters as well as empirical model equations were developed. The model...
Process optimization and kinetics for leaching of cerium, lanthanum and neodymium elements from iron ore waste's apatite by nitric acid, Article Transactions of Nonferrous Metals Society of China (English Edition) ; Volume 27, Issue 2 , 2017 , Pages 420-428 ; 10036326 (ISSN) ; Yoozbashizadeh, H ; Sharif University of Technology

The leaching of rare earth elements (REEs) including cerium, lanthanum and neodymium from apatite concentrate obtained from iron ore wastes by nitric acid was studied. The effects of nitric acid concentration, solid to liquid ratio and leaching time on the recoveries of Ce, La and Nd were investigated using response surface methodology. The results showed that the acid concentration and solid to liquid ratio have significant effect on the leaching recoveries while the time has a little effect. The maximum REE leaching recoveries of 66.1%, 56.8% and 51.7% for Ce, La and Nd, respectively were achieved at the optimum leaching condition with 18% nitric acid concentration, 0.06 solid to liquid...
