Bentonite is usually a open cast mine and can contain an over burden of 5′ to 50′ in our area. After the suitable grade is selected, bentonite is quarried and dried in natural state to reduce the moisture from 30 to 10%. This process further involves removal of foreign material by screening which is harmful for natural property of bentonite.Depending upon the usage bentonite is usually activated with soda ash for enhancement of properties required in various applications. While activation with soda ash we use the method of wet activation, which ensures even penetration of soda and optimised result.Before finally processing in powder form our bentonite are closely inspected by our quality control team.We process both Sodium and Calcium based Bentonite. Treatment is done in accordance to product specification and usage.
Bentonite deposits are normally exploited by quarrying. Extracted bentonite is distinctly solid, even with a high moisture content of approximately 30%. The material is initially crushed and, if necessary, activated with the addition of soda ash (Na2CO3). Bentonite is subsequently dried (air and/or forced drying) to reach the moisture content of approximately 15%.According to the final application, bentonite is either sieved (granular form) or milled (into powder and superfine powder form).
