Bentonite Clay Processing Plant

Bentonite Clay Processing Plant

Bentonite is clay composed primarily of smectite minerals, usually montmorillonite, and is used largely in drilling muds, in foundry sands, and in pelletizing taconite iron ores. Bentonite has many useful applications. It can be used in cement, adhesives, ceramic bodies, and cat litter. Bentonite is also used as a binding agent in the manufacture of taconite pellets as used in the steelmaking industry. Fuller's earth, an ancient dry-cleaning substance, is finely ground bentonite, typically used for purifying transformer oil. Bentonite, in small percentages, is used as an ingredient in commercially designed clay bodies and ceramic glazes.

Bentonite deposits are usually exploited by quarrying. Extracted bentonite is distinctly solid, even with a high moisture content of approximately 30%. The material is initially crushed or sliced, and, if necessary, activated by addition of soda ash (Na2CO3). Bentonite is subsequently dried (air and/or forced drying) to reach the required moisture content. The dried material then is ground by roller or hammer mills.

Crusher for Bentonite Clay Processing Plant

If the raw bentonite clay processing plant contains significant content of moisture, primary size reduction in crusher that employs impact as the main mechanism of comminution may not be effective. Usually for the primary crushing of wet and sticky material good choice are roller crushers that have specially designed toothed rollers that tear large blocks of clay in small pieces for further processing. But also jaw crusher and cone crusher may be applied.
