What is Quartz?

What is Quartz?

Quartz is one of the most useful and abundant minerals found on earth crust. Deposits of Quartz are found across all continents and occur in all types of rocks, including igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary.

Quartz occurs in many varieties and has specific physical, chemical and electric properties which make it highly usable in a wide range of industries and sectors. Quartz sand is a useful raw material for the building and construction industry. Silica sand is extensively used in the manufacture of glass and ceramics and for foundry moulds in metal casting.

Quartz Processing:

  • Crushing & Grinding - Normally to reduce the big ore lumps to small particles, two to three stages crushing are required
  • Scrubbing - Scrubbing refers to the removal of thin-film iron, bonding and muddy impurity minerals on the surface of quartz sand by mechanical force and the frictional force between sand grains, and further shredding the unassembled mineral aggregates
  • Wet Screening - High capacity wet screening offers a wide range of sizing and classification tasks. Wet screening units are designed to screen out fines and classify oversize particles efficiently
  • Sand Dewatering - Mineral must be clean to meet the users' specification. Dewatering screen technology delivers minerals that are ready for market straight from the belts
