Dolomite is a very useful mineral in the glass industry since CaO and MgO perform the role of network modifiers in the glass manufacturing process.
High-grade dolomite with as low Iron and Silica content as possible is required by the Glass Industry. Glass grade dolomite is typified by its purity and consistency. Dolomite is a double carbonate of calcium and magnesium (CaCO3, MgCO3). The chief undesirable impurities are iron followed by chromite, manganese, vanadium and lead, all of which may cause defects in the float glass or color glass. For certain commercial colourless glass the Fe2O3 content up to 0.25% is permissible, but for pure colourless glass, Fe2O3 content of 0.04% (max) is sometimes specified.
Achieving several years of industrial experience and explicit knowledge of this domain, we are providing an excellent assortment of Dolomite Powder for Glass Industry. Dolomite is most importantly used in glass making industry. Most trading glasses contain integrally of silica together with soda and lime, the lime being partially restored by magnesia for the same basis.
Lime and magnesia is initiated into the glass melt by including dolomite. Lime and magnesia both enhance the longevity of glass but magnesia also slows the devitrification procedure which is most important for the production of flat glass.
Dolomite Powder is also used in container glass. Iron content is the critical property of Dolomite powder in glass making grade. It is assessed an impurity in the production of bleached glasses. In colorless Glass containers, so low content of ferric oxide (Fe2O3) is required.
• Precisely processed
• Precise composition
High-quality dolomite powder is required by the glass industry. Glass grade dolomite is characterized by its purity and stability. Dolomite is the combination of calcium carbonate and magnesium. In Commercial colourless glass, the Fe2O3 content up to 0.25% is permissible and pure colourless glass, Fe2O3 content of 0.04% is listed.
