The composition of bentonite clay produced at our enterprise.

This clay contains about 70% of the mineral component, which belongs to the class of smectite minerals. These are montmorillonite, nontronite, beidellite, hydromica, kaolinite, carbonate, quartz, as well as some other components.

This material has a layered structure and moisture, getting into it, allows the material to swell several times.

In addition to the above components, it has bentonite and other minerals in the composition: sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron oxide, as well as some others. At the same time, it is indicated that the properties of the entire mixture will depend on the amount of one or another component.

So, a suspension with a large amount of sodium will have the highest swelling rate, but calcium bentonite will be significantly inferior to it according to these indicators.

Clay bentonite also has the following properties:

Sedimentation 0%;
Density up to 1.048 cm3 per gram;
Viscosity up to 25 sec;
Volumetric weight up to 0.9 g/cm3.

Bentonite clay of our production is a material of natural origin

Bentonite clay of our production is a material of natural origin, which is distinguished by the fact that it can be used almost everywhere. Its main component is montmorillonite. It is thanks to him that it acquires such outstanding properties of hydrophilicity and swelling.

It was noted that if you limit the amount of liquid poured into it, as well as the space, then it is possible to obtain a gel that repels moisture from it.

Bentonite has amazing waterproofing properties, which is why it is applicable in a huge number of areas.
In addition, it also has the following characteristics:
Water purification;
The ability to prevent mechanical impact;
Acceptance of any form without the use of any complex mechanisms;
Detention of not only toxins, but also moisture.
In addition, it is noted that at rest, bentonite is able to liquefy, while when used, its density thickens significantly. This explains the wide scope of application of clay of this type.

Application of bentonite clay
Application of bentonite clay

The range of use of bentonite clay is incredibly wide. So, this includes the following areas of application:
Production of ceramics;
The medicine;
Swimming pools, including industrial ones;
Capacities and reservoirs of gas stations;
Waste landfills;
Agricultural sphere;
Roads built on soft ground;
artificial reservoirs;
Construction, including underground;
Manufacturing of lacquer products;
Wine production.
But the main scope is the use of this material in well drilling. A special liquid is made from it, with the help of which flushing work is carried out, which makes it possible to get rid of residues in the cavity of the rock well. At the same time, non-activated or activated solutions will differ significantly in quality.

The mechanism of action of such a gel-like liquid from bentonite is quite simple. It envelops the cavity of the well with the thinnest layer that prevents gas or oil from entering it. This process is called claying and it allows you to exclude the possibility of oil flowing from the well, and also allows you to speed up the drilling process.

Advantages and disadvantages of bentonite clay

Advantages and disadvantages of bentonite clay
The positive side of bentonite is not only the possibility of wide application, but also its ability to independently restore the smallest damage.

You can also highlight other advantages of bentonite clay:

Withstanding many cycles of freezing and thawing;
The ability not to change its properties during operation;
Waterproofing properties;
Ensuring excellent adhesion of soils;
Relatively simple process for making mortar and assembling products from bentonite;
The disadvantages of the material, compared with other types, are few. So, the "fat" type of bentonite clay has the ability to crack when dried. This can be prevented with special treatments, but still this feature can be considered a disadvantage.
Price. Based on its own properties, the material has an acceptable cost;
Practicality. The list of all those applications in which you can use bentonite clay is really amazing. Few materials can simultaneously be used both in cosmetology and in metallurgy;
Appearance. It does not include any impurities that can make it look too bad;
Ease of manufacture. Mining in a quarry, of course, does not present any difficulties, however, due to the wide range of applications, bentonite will need several types of processing, which will somewhat complicate the extraction process;
Labor intensive when using. Does not require any additional measures, can be used immediately after purchase;
Environmental friendliness. Not just eco-friendly, but also a very useful material, which is even considered a good dietary supplement for domestic animals. The composition of the clay is unique due to the large amount of minerals and is not capable of doing any harm.

Features of bentonite products.

Bentonite clay powder is a product of drying and fine grinding of natural material - clay, which has retained all its colloidal-chemical properties. It is widely used in the national economy:

in the mining industry - for the preparation of drilling fluids;

in foundry - as binding additives in the production of molding sands;

in ferrous metallurgy - for pelletizing iron ore concentrate;

in ceramic production - to impart high strength to products;

in construction - for the production of high-quality expanded clay;

in the food industry - for the purification of liquids;

in medicine and pharmacology - for the manufacture of medicines;

in agriculture - to improve the structure of the soil.

Bentonite is one of the most versatile and inexpensive natural products in which the mineral content of montmorillonite is 50% or more. From the point of view of practical use, alkaline ones are the best, since they can be used without additional processing.

 Bentonite clay and areas of its application.
Bentonite clay and areas of its application.

Bentonite has found application in many areas of human activity, for example, it is used in drilling, including horizontal directional drilling, in civil engineering (when constructing objects below the water table - the "wall in the ground" method), in foundry (for manufacturing molding sands), as well as in everyday life, for example, as a base for litter for pet litter.
We are a specialized enterprise for the production of loose, finely ground materials used in various industries: metallurgy, foundry, oil and gas and construction. In these industries, bentonite is used for pelletizing iron ore concentrates, for preparing molding sands and drilling fluids. At present, the use of bentonite is expanding in the chemical industry, in the agricultural and livestock industries. Bentonite and products from it are used for various environmental purposes, for waterproofing, as well as for wastewater treatment and disposal of radioactive waste.

The quality of bentonite powders primarily depends on the raw material (clay)

Bentonite powder is also called clay powder and has advantages over other Komov clays. It is a rapid and complete swelling of the contained particles. As for the transportation of clay powders, it is cheaper than the same bentonite clay.

The quality of bentonite powders primarily depends on the raw material (clay), as well as on the method of its technological processing. So, during technological processing it is necessary to add soda ash with acrylic polymers that will improve quality of concrete powder many times.
Bentonite is a type of clay that consists of more than 70% of the mineral montmorillonite. Montmorillonite is a mineral of the aluminosilicate class, which has a uniquely small particle size, about 10 times smaller than the particles of other clays. This particle size of montmorillonite allows it to interact effectively with water molecules, creating an effective drilling fluid.

Areas of application of clay powders based on bentonite:
-Formovochnye mixes - in a combination of bentonite with refractory materials.

-Sorption reagents for purification of food liquid environments, natural, technical and sewage.

-Formation of iron ore pellets in metallurgy.

-Waterproofing of the bases in construction.

-Drilling solution for vertical and horizontal drilling.

-As a load of slaughter.

-Bent powder for the wine industry.

-Household application - filler for toilets for pets.

Natural clay mineral with a number of valuable unique physical and chemical properties, as well as non-toxicity, chemical resistance and rich composition, plays a comprehensive role in many areas of human activity: industry, medicine, agriculture, construction and environmental protection.

Bentonite is a colloidal clay of volcanic origin, which has adsorptive, binding properties, dispersion, water absorption. It contains elements such as calcium, sulfur, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, manganese and others.

The best raw material for benetonite is mined in the Grigorievsky mine.

Due to all these properties, bentonite clays have become widely used in advanced economies in recent years. The main raw material base in Ukraine is a high-quality bentonite deposit, which is located in the Donetsk region of the Artyomovsky district

- this is the Grigorievsky Mine. It has been in operation since 2002. Annual production is 150 thousand tons. Remaining license reserves - 4.9 million tons. Clays of the alkaline earth type, after modification, were used for the production of pellets, drilling fluids (clay powder TU U 320.00136751.032-99) and as molding raw materials.
