Perlite is a kind of volcanic eruption acid lava, vitreous rock formed by rapid cooling. Perlite ore is a raw ore product made by crushing and screening perlite ore. Various specifications of perlite products can be made according to the needs of customers.
Raw ore (crushing, drying)→coarse crushing 21mm～40mm(grinding)→medium crushing 5mm(grinding, sieving)→fine crushing 20 mesh～50 mesh (screening)→50～70 mesh～90 mesh～120 mesh ～200 mesh→bagging (grading)
Color: yellow and white, flesh red, dark green, gray, brown brown, black gray and other colors, of which gray-white-light gray is the main color
Appearance: Ragged fracture, conchoidal, lobed, white streaks
Mohs hardness 5.5~7
Density g/cm3 2.2~2.4
Refractive index 1.483~1.506
Expansion ratio 4~25
Ore type : SiO2 Al2O3 Fe2O3 CaO K2O Na2O MgO H2O
Perlite : 68~74 ±12 0.5~3.6 0.7~1.0 2~3 4~5 0.3 2.3~6.4
The industrial value of perlite raw materials is mainly determined by their expansion ratio and product bulk density after high-temperature roasting.
1. Expansion multiple k0>5~15 times
2. Bulk density≤80kg/m3~200 kg/m3
The raw perlite sand is finely pulverized and ultra-finely pulverized, and can be used as a filler in rubber and plastic products, pigments, paints, inks, synthetic glass, heat-insulating bakelite, and some mechanical components and equipment.
