Fluorite (also called fluorspar) is a halide mineral composed of calcium fluoride, CaF2. It is an isometric mineral with a cubic habit, though octahedral and more complex isometric forms are not uncommon. Fluorite is the main industrial source of fluorine, which is widely used in aerospace, refrigeration, medicine, and anti-corrosion, and fire, electrical, mechanical and nuclear fields. The world’s other major producing of South Africa, Kenya, Mongolia, Russia, the United States, Thailand, Spain and other places.
Fluorite is a colorful mineral, both in visible and ultraviolet light, and the stone has ornamental and lapidary uses. Industrially, fluorite is used as a flux for smelting, and in the production of certain glasses and enamels. The purest grades of fluorite are a source of fluoride for hydrofluoric acidmanufacture, which is the intermediate source of most fluorine-containing fine chemicals. Optically clear transparent fluorite lenses have low dispersion, so lenses made from it exhibit less chromatic aberration, making them valuable in microscopes and telescopes. Fluorite optics is also usable in the far-ultraviolet range where conventional glasses are too absorbent for use.
Fluorite ore crushing process is a system process. The original ore will be translated by vibrating feeder that feeding jaw crusher in primary crushing. After primary crushing, the big fluorite ore will be crushed into 20-50mm. After the primary crushing of fluorite ore is fed into the crushing machine in secondary crushing. After second crushing, the fluorite ore will be crushed into 3-5mm, and 60% - 90% of the total, and a ball mill can enter the two-stage crushing ore grinding operation. The ball mill is generally composed of a closed-loop and spiral classifier, ball mill after grinding the material into the classifier for classification. The qualified fine ore into the next process, coarse ore failed to return a ball mill for grinding.
In crushing equipment market of Kenya, there are mainly three series of crusher that are fluorite jaw crusher, fluorite impact crusher and fluorite cone crusher.Different crusher for different stone resource, more targeted, more efficient, longer the stone crushing machine and spare parts life, days and months multiplying, it can save you really a lot of money.
Fluorite jaw crusher is commonly used as coarse stone crusher for fluorite mining in Kenya. It is mainly used in primary crushing in fluorite crushing plant. SBM can provide large jaw crusher and small jaw crusher for stone quarry, sand making and mine ore processing plant. It is the widely used stone crusher that used in fluorite crushing process. It can crush fluorite stone into small dust with 10 mm. and the capacity can upto250 t/h.
Fluorite Cone Crusher is the fine crushing machine used in fluorite processing plant. After crushing process, fluorite is less than 15mm. SBM manufactures different series of cone crusher which can meet customers’ different requirements. It also is applied to cement mill, mining, building construction, road &bridge construction, railway construction and metallurgy and some other industries.
Fluorite impact crusher manufactured by SBM with advanced technology. It can be used for intermediate and fine crushing in the second and third grade. Compared with the traditional stone impact crusher, SBM’s impact crusher can reach up to 1500 t/h, and it can crush the large ores into standard particles size to meet the sand making plant needs within one stage, which takes the place of the traditional two-stages crushing process.
Spiral classifiers are designed to provide the most effective pool area and overflow velocity requirements.
CS cone crusher is used in the industries of metallurgy, building material, road construction, chemical engineering & silicate etc.
Base on decades of years’ R&D experience and thousands of clients’ production experience, SBM updated our tranditional vibrating feeder and developped the TSW series feeder, which can greatly improve the whole production line capacity.
Mobile jaw crusher is designed to exceed the primary crushing in mining, quarrying, recycling industries.
Mobile cone crusher is suitable for secondary and tertiary crushing in direct feed applications.
