An experimental design of magnetizing reduction and magnetic separation of Egyptian low grade iron ore has been conducted using a data developed from applying the conventional single-factor experimentation in order to get the real optimum conditions of the processing. A model has been developed for magnetizing reduction to describe the relationship between the extent of reduction and the reduction temperature, time and reducing gas flow rate, whereas another model for magnetic separation process was deduced correlating the ore size and reduction time to the iron recovery in the magnetic concentrate.
