According to the traditional point of view, the raw materials used in ceramic industry are potassium feldspar and potassium flux materials. With the development of science and technology and advanced equipment, albite quarrying plant has become a new development direction. The traditional view has been broken through, the role of albitehas been recognized. Now, albite plays a more and more important role in the ceramic industry. At present, with its advantages of abundant resources, low price, reducing the sintering temperature, reducing energy, albite quarrying has larger development space.
As a kind of feldspar resource, most of mineral processing technology of albite must pass through the process of grinding. Sodium feldspar minerals can be used as industrial raw materials, consumption accounted for more than 30% in the ceramics industry, but also widely used in chemical and other industries.
1、Glass solvent: Feldspar is one of the key components of glass mixture, feldspar containing alumina, iron content is low, which can reduce the amount of alkali. Feldspar can also be used to adjust the glass viscosity, potassium feldspar or albite materials are generally used in all kinds of glass mixed. Therefore, in order to have more broad prospects in the glass market and meet the market need, albite must has a fine milling process.
2、The ceramic body ingredients: As a main raw material for the production of ceramics, albite has its own advantages. Albite can be used as a flux filling in the blank in the firing, so that the body of the dense and reduce the gap, but also improve the transparency of bodies.
3、Ceramic glaze: Porcelain glaze are composed of feldspar, quartz and clay, the albite content can reach 15 to 35% above, which is an important ingredient of high-grade ceramic products.
4、Industrial raw materials :Potassium, albite can be used as high-quality raw materials for the production of chemical fertilizer.
We need to be considered from the albite resource and market and make high efficiency albite quarryingprocess and grinding equipment. According to the feldspar deposit type and different nature, SBM can use different beneficiation methods for you.High-capacity and high-efficiency albite quarrying process mainly include crushing, milling and screening. The process has the advantages of simple operation, good separation effect, low equipment investment and operation cost, easy operation etc. SBM MTW series milling machine is designed by our experts, according to collected advices from customers’ long-term experiences. It takes the most advanced patent technology from European and the supply the customers with outstanding performance at low costs. We believe,SBM grinding equipment must create enormous economic benefits for your albite production line.
In recent years, with the decrease of feldspar ore, continuously improve the requirements on the quality of the products, and the development of comprehensive recovery of the mine has been more and more important. In order to ensure the albite quarrying smoothly, we have introduced the gravity separation, flotation separation operation, high gradient magnetic separation and other more advanced processing method, so as to remove quartz, mica, and other associated minerals and improve the application value of sodium feldspar. Fromalbite market supply and demand and its rising prices, we conclude that demand of albite is very high.According to industry data analysis, especially the serious shortage of high quality albite powder, this has a broad market prospect. Albite quarrying plant is a new development idea of mining industry, we should seize the opportunity promote the economic development with the aid of albite development.
