BRG Ceramine produce high quality Potasium Feldspar with performed quality control and high efficienty and latest high-tech plants for consistant and performed output minerals.
Feldspars are aluminosilicates. Their fusibility and purity make them a useful raw material with many industrial applications. The geological context specific to each deposit gives the feldspars a variety of physical and chemical properties, thus providing products for a full-range of ceramic and glass-making applications.
Feldspars are used:
As fluxing agents in the production of ceramics, where they play a vital role in the firing of tiles, sanitaryware, tableware and glazes.
In glass-making, where they provide the aluminium that enhances the strength and transparency of hollow glass, flat glass, and glass wool.
As fillers in paints, plasters, insulation etc.
Once the project zone has been defined, the area is blasted to break up the rock and make it accessible to the diggers and loaders. The ore is then extracted and transported to the process plant.
Feed stocks are built up and sampled at the quarry. Samples are tested with a view to providing the process plant with a constant homogeneous supply that is appropriate for the product in production.
Aggregates are returned to the quarry. The remaining product is sold directly in the form of sand to glass manufacturers; or ground up and packed for ceramics markets.
