Limestone is a common non-metallic mineral. China’s limestone mineral resources are rich, accounting for more than 64% of the world’s total reserves, is a natural resource with advantages. At present, developed countries such as Japan and the United States have made great achievements in limestone utilization and deep processing. There are 400 to 500 patents, which have promoted domestic technological progress and accelerated the rapid growth of China’s limestone mill industry. The direction of specialization and refinement is developing rapidly, and more uses are expanded. The grinding mill for limestone produced by Guilin Hengda with the advantages of low price and high efficiency, which meets market demand.

Application field

The grinding mill for limestone is widely used and has a promising market prospect. It integrates the development status of deep processing of limestone products at home and abroad and introduces several main uses of limestone mines in China.

Grinding mill for limestone

(1)Production of foundry sand for machinery manufacturing.The grit produced by limestone has a particle size of 28-75 mesh. This type of sand has better performance than quartz sand, good collapsibility, easy sand drop cleaning, improve the surface quality of castings, increase the surface finish of castings, and basically eliminate the harm of workers’ silicosis. According to statistics, only major steel companies have to purchase tens of thousands of tons of foundry sand each year, which is a potential market for the limestone mine in the metallurgical industry.

(2) Used in industrial building materials and other industries. Limestone is ground to 100-200 mesh, which can be directly used to produce powder for industrial building materials such as double fly powder and putty powder. It is also a very important raw material in the construction of mixing stations and highways. The limestone-grinding coating greatly improves the thixotropy of the system, and can significantly improve the adhesion of the coating, the scrub resistance, the stain resistance, the strength and the surface finish, and has a good anti-settling effect. Partial replacement of titanium dioxide, reducing costs.

(3) Production of a desulfurization absorbent. Limestone is ground to 200-325 mesh instead of raw lime or slaked lime. It is mixed with water in the absorption tower to form a slurry. The absorption slurry is mixed with the flue gas. The sulfur dioxide in the flue gas is mixed with the calcium carbonate in the slurry and the air entrained. The chemical reaction is removed and the final reaction product is gypsum. The flue gas after desulfurization is heated and heated to be discharged into the chimney. The process equipment is mature, the desulfurization efficiency is high, and the application range is wide.

(4) Used as a filler in production processes such as plastics and coatings. The natural calcium carbonate minerals used as raw materials for this kind of products, that is, limestone, require CaCO3 (dry basis): 9810% of superior grades, 96.10% of first grade products, 94.10% of second grade products, Fe2O3 ≤ 0.11 %, Mn ≤ 0.102%, Cu ≤0.1001%, whiteness above 90. Further, fine ore having an average particle diameter of 400 to 800 mesh is used as a coating filler, 800-1250 mesh is used as a filler for plastics, rubber, and paper, and 2500 mesh is activated for use as an ink filler.

Equipment recommendation

For 80-3000 mesh limestone powder grinding, we can choose raymond mill, micro powder grinder and ultrafine mill etc from Guilin Hengda Mining Machinery Co., ltd, which can meets your different requirements.
