SOMETIMES THE PERCENTAGE OF ALUMINIUM AND IRON IS VERY HIGH WHICH RENDERS THE ZINC UNSUITABLE FOR OUR END USERS.

Dear AJAY BANSAL,

There are different methods to remove impurities from Zinc base metal. Which secondary grade you want to produce? PW grade could be produced by pyrometallurgical method.

The process to get 99.9 % pure zinc is only distillation.

I can guide you in detail upon your reply.
