Quartz powder (as quartz sand), also known as Silicon micropowder. Quartz sand is an extremely durable, wear-resistant and chemically stable silicate mineral. Its principal mineral component, SiO2, is its main ingredient. Quartz sand has a milky or transparent color. Mohs hardness measures 7. It is soft and non-cleavable. It can be distinguished by a shellfish like fracture, grease gloss, density at 2.65, bulk density between 15-200 mesh and 1.5), chemical, thermal, and mechanical properties. Quarz sand, which is made from quartz stones extracted from mines with a fineness less than 120mm, (less that 120 mesh), is the final product. The product with greater than 120 mesh is called quartz powder.
Quartz powder overview
Quartz powder is similar to quartz sand in terms of its physicochemical qualities. It’s also commonly known as Silicon micropowder.
Quartz sand is an extremely durable, wear-resistant, and chemically stable silicate minerals. Its primary mineral component SiO2. Quartz sand comes in two colours: colorless, translucent or milky. Its hardness ranges from 7. It is extremely brittle with no cleavage. It displays a braided, grease gloss, density 2.65 and bulk density (15 to 200 mesh 1.5), as well as chemical, thermal, mechanical, and anisotropy.
Once the quartz stone has been extracted from its mine, the final product that is less than 120 millimeters (less 120 days) can be called quartz sand. Quartz powder can be made from products that are more than 120 mm.
You can use quartz powder dry or water method to obtain the following specifications: 120M – 200M – 260M – 325M – 600M – 800M – 1000M – 2000M (M for Mesh).
You can use it to manufacture glass, refractory (furnace), smelting Ferrosilicon and coatings. This is used to create acid-resistant concrete, and acid resistant mortar.
Quartz powder dry-method and water:
1. Wet production of quartz dust.
You will need a stone crusher, pulverizer, and vibrating screens as the primary equipment. You will need to first process the quartz stone into a smaller size using a grinding machine. Once the material has been reduced, it will be processed by vibrating sieve. A magnet rod and vibrating sieve are then used to remove any iron from the sieving process.
2. Method for producing quartz powder with water
There are three main components to the stone machine: stone mill, stone machine, bakery room, vibrating screens, water system.
The procedure is as follows: A quartz stone ore product is reduced to a smaller material by a machine called a “gangue”, and rock crushing then crushes the stone into sand. The water, along with the sand is added, flows into a sedimentation tank and is then placed inside. The dried sand can then be transported to the baking room where it will be baked. Next, it will go through a vibrating sieve. The iron rod magnetic is removed from the sand during the screening. Next, the filling is done and stored.
You can choose between two kinds of dry-processed Quartz Powder: normal quartz powder or fine quartz powder. This is the natural quartz mineral from the mountain. It will have a yellow-brown appearance. Products that are crushed directly and then sieved with smaller quartz minerals are called normal quartz powder. You can choose from color or white. The disadvantages are that it is expensive and magazines can be very costly. Because of this, the material is mainly used by construction companies to identify large mines. You can remove the material artificially from your yellow-brown skin to make refined quartz powder. It has a very white appearance. Price is high because the process takes longer and costs more.
The water method separates the quartz powder into quartz powder (or ordinary) and quartz powder (or refined quartz). The quartz material from quartz rock is divided into two types: ordinary quartz powder and refined quartz powder. Water quartz dust is more likely than dry quartz to make equipment iron. While water quartz powder’s iron and other impurities may be lower than in dry quartz powder, its processing cost is higher. It is also more expensive because of the material. Due to its excellent whiteness, high iron content and lack of impurities it can be used in many different applications.
