Plagioclase isa series of feldspar lead minerals and it includes sodium feldspar, oligoclasite, andesine, labradorite, bytownite and calcium feldspar. Most of plagioclase varieties can produce fine and parallel stripes on the surface; some still have blue or green iridescence, which is caused by their twin structure. Plagioclase is used to manufacture glass and ceramics. The most common is plagioclase feldspar; bake feldspar is the rarest.
Plagioclase crystal is triclinic crystal system frame structure of silicate minerals, it mainly assumes columnar crystal shape, the thick plate, often for granular or massive; Many colors are pale, sometimes microstrip , pale blue and pale red. The hardness is 6-6.5; and the relative density is 2.61 2.76. It has glass luster and two groups of cleavage. Visible on the surface is crystal or cleavage fine and parallel twin lines. Two groups of cleavage (a set of complete, a set of medium) intersect at 86 ° 24 ', therefore, it is known as plagioclase. The Mohs hardness is 6-6.5 and the proportion is 2.6-2.6. It can be used as a ceramic material.
Plagioclase quarrying plant can be regarded as the mining processing plant. Depending on the specific characteristics of the plagioclase, the quarrying plant can be divided into dry processing and wet processing.
Dry process is a simple and economic processing. The raw materials are crushed by the hammer crusher to 25.4mm, and then send the plagioclase to the impact crusher to6.35mm. The heat air in the impact crusher will take away 10% water of plagioclase. The crushed minerals continue to be crushed by the Raymond Mill which equipped with centrifugal separator and cyclone dust collector. Dry process could eliminate most of the sand stone, and the products are usually used in rubber, plastic and paper-making. With dry process, it does not need the dehydration and drying processes. It will reduce the ash content running off, the technology process is short and cost is relative low. It is suitable to the dry and water-deficient area. However, to get the high purity and quality plagioclase, wet process is still the best choice.
We processing involve: hydraulic classification, flotation, magnetic separator and other ways to remove the different kinds of impurities. The preparation stage involves burdening, crushing and smashing. The pulp will be sent into washing box, flotation classifier in sequence to remove the sand. And then with the continuous centrifugal, water spiral separator and vibrating screen, the materials will be divided into coarse and fine mineral.
SBM is professional stone processing machine manufacturer from China. It has more than 20 years' production experience and high technology. The processing machine has advanced quality and high quality. Our processing machine is welcomed by the worldwide clients and it has brought high profits for stone processing businessmen.
The plagioclase processing machines mainly has crushing machine and grinding machines. The crushing machines include jaw crusher, cone crusher, impact crusher, mobile crusher machines. The grinding machine mainly includes ball mill, Raymond mill and the other milling machines.
SBM's plagioclase crusher portable plant can be operated as independent units or as a two- or three-stage crushing application: from primary to secondary, tertiary and fine crushing. As required, a portable screen can be attached to the process.
SBM's plagioclase crusher portable plants are built around the proven SBM crushers, which are respected world-wide for their engineering quality, crushing efficiency, versatility and cost effectiveness. Lightweight and superior in engineering design, these crushers offer exceptional crushing performance. They are ideally suited to the most demanding portable crushing and screening applications. Take a closer look at SBM's plagioclase crusher portable plant series - it offers new possibilities in mobile crushing - always at the lowest cost per ton.
After crushing, the plagioclase material is ground in small mobile ball mill for plagioclase mining. There are a variety of different grinding mills, including rod and ball mills. In the grinding mills, the impact of the minerals grinding against each other and against the steel balls in the mill breaks down the size of the minerals even further. The mining process also includes a vibrating screen that sorts the crushed material into desired grain sizes. Rock material is extremely hard and thus it wears down the crushers and grinders. Therefore the wear parts, like the various blades and rotors and the liners of grinding mills, must be replaced regularly.
PFW Impact crusher can crush Limestone, feldspar, calcite, talc, barite, earth, clay, kaolin, dolomite, kaolin, gypsum, graphite etc.
Magnetic separation machine can be applied for wet dressing of ores with the size less than 3mm.
HPT cone crusher is a wide variety of quality size reduction equipment & system in rock processing industry.
Ball mills are used primary for single stage fine grinding, regrinding, and as the second stage in two stage grinding circuits.
VSI5X crusher (the latest vertical shaft impact crusher improved from VSI crusher) is necessary crushing equipment used in manufactured sand production line.
