Applied Clay Mineralogy: Occurrences, Processing and by Haydn H. Murray

By Haydn H. Murray

This e-book on utilized Clay Mineralogy is complete. It covers the constitution, composition, and actual and chemical homes of kaolinite, halloysite, ball clays; bentonites together with sodium montmorillonite, calcium montmorillonite, and hectorite; and palygorskite and sepiolite. there's additionally a quick bankruptcy on universal clays that are used for making structural clay items and light-weight mixture. the positioning and geology of the foremost clay deposits which are advertised around the world and domestically contain kaolins from the USA, Southwest England, Brazil, and the Czech Republic besides halloysite from New Zealand and ball clays from the united states, England, Germany, and Ukraine. Bentonites from the U.S. and Europe are incorporated in addition to palygorskite and sepiolite from the united states, China, Senegal, and Spain. The mining and processing of many of the clays are defined. huge discussions of the various purposes of the clays are integrated. The appendices conceal the $64000 laboratory checks which are used to spot and review a few of the different types of clay. Many figures are integrated protecting electron micrographs, processing circulation sheets, stratigraphy, and site maps. * presents the constitution and composition of clay minerals, in addition to their phyisical and chemical houses * Discusses pplications for Kaolin, Bentonite, Palygorskite and Sepiolite * comprises appendixes of laboratory exams and techniques, in addition to a try out for universal clays
