Applications of Dolomite Powder

Construction Industry:- As construction material, dolomite is crushed and sized for use as a road base material, an aggregate in concrete and asphalt, railroad ballast, rip-rap (armour shorelines, streambeds, bridge abutments, pilings and other shoreline structures against scour and water erosion), or fill. Dolomite is chosen as a construction material due to its increased hardness and density. Asphalt and concrete applications prefer dolomite as filler because of its higher strength and hardness.

Iron and Steel Industry:- iron and steel industry, the main uses of dolomite are (i) as a fluxing material (ii) for protection of refractory lining, and (iii) as a refractory raw material. Dolomite in iron and steel industry is normally used in three forms. These are (i) raw dolomite which is also the natural form of dolomite, (ii) calcined dolomite, and (iii) sintered dolomite. When dolomite is used as a fluxing material then it is used as either raw dolomite or calcined dolomite. When dolomite is used for the protection of refractories, it is used in calcined form and when dolomite is being used as a refractory raw material, it is used in the form of sintered dolomite.

Chemical Industry:- In the Chemical Industry :- It is used for acid neutralization in the chemical industry, in stream restoration projects, and as a soil conditioner. Dolomite is used as a source of magnesia (MgO), a feed additive for livestock, a sintering agent and flux in metal processing, and as an ingredient in the production of glass, bricks, and ceramics.

Agriculture:- Dolomite is relatively soft and can easily be crushed to soft powder. Dolomite powder is used in agriculture to reduce soil acidity and also to adjust magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is an important plant nutrient.

Soap & Detergent:- Natural Dolomite Powder is of White Color and is used as Filler in many applications such as Soap & Detergent, and many other Industries.

Glass Making Industry:- Another important use of dolomite is in glassmaking industry. Most commercial glasses consist essentially of silica together with soda (Na2O) and lime (CaO), the lime being partly replaced by magnesia for the same purpose. Dolomite is also used in container glass. A critical property of the glassmaking grade of dolomite is the iron content, since it is considered a serious impurity in the manufacture of colourless glasses. Very low content of Fe2O3 is needed for the manufacture of colourless glass containers and, sometimes, low iron flat glasses.

Rubber Industry:- We take pleasure to introduce ourselves as one of the renowned firms for offering the best-in-class collection of Rubber Grade Dolomite Powder which is used in rubber industry.
