Abstract

Abstract Manganese ferrite spinel has been synthesized by using mill scale and fines of manganese ore sinter as sources of iron oxide and manganese oxide, respectively. The magnetic and physico-mechanical properties of the produced sample are largely dependent not only on the sintering condition but also on the Mn:Fe mole ratio. The effect of silica (which is one of the constituents of the fines of manganese ore sinter) on the properties of the sintered samples is investigated. The results show that a single phase of manganese ferrite spinel with weak magnetic properties is obtained in a sample containing a Mn:Fe mole ratio of 1.4:2 and sintered at 1300 °C for 2 h. On the other hand, a maximum saturation magnetization (62 emu/g) with reasonable physico-mechanical properties is obtained for a sample containing a Mn:Fe mole ratio of 1.3:2 and sintered at the same sintering conditions.
