Quartz powder (also known as quartz micropowder) is similar to quartz sand. Quartz sand is an extremely durable and wear-resistant 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 inflexible. It can be distinguished by a shellfish like fracture, grease gloss, density at 2.65 and bulk density between 15-200 mesh is 1.5. Also, it has an obvious anisotropy. Quarz sand, which is the final product of the mining of quartz stones, is made with less than 120 mesh. The product with greater than 120 mesh is called quartz powder.
Quartz powder overview
The physical and chemical properties of quartz powder are the same as those in quartz sand. It is also known by silicon micropowder.
Quartz sand is an extremely durable, wear-resistant, and chemically solid silicate mineral. It is composed mainly of SiO2. Quartz sand comes in two colours: colorless, translucent or milky. Its hardness level is 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 anisotropic properties.
Once the quartz stone has been extracted from its mine, it is processed into quartz sand. The product that achieves a fineness less than 120 mesh (less then 120 days) will 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 (Mesh).
You can use it to make glass, refractory (furnace), ferrosilicon, rubber fillers and coatings. This is used to create acid-resistant mortars and concrete.
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 crushed material has been processed, the vibrating Sieve will sieve it and use the magnet rod to remove any iron.
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. At the end of the rolling process, the water and sand are poured into the sedimentation tray and placed inside. Once dry, the sand can be transported to the baking room. It is then dried and then sieved in a vibrating sieve. The iron rod magnetic is removed from the sand during the screening. Once the filling has been completed, it can be stored.
You can choose between two kinds of dry-processed Quartz Powder: normal quartz powder and 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 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 primarily 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 processing takes more time and costs more.
Quartz powder created by the water process is split into quartz powder (orginal quartz powder) 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 powders, its processing cost is higher. It is therefore more costly. Due to its excellent whiteness, high iron content and lack of impurities it can be used in many different applications.
