Diatomaceous earth also known as diatomite or kieselgur, is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that is easily crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. It has a particle size ranging from less than 1 micron to more than 1 millimeter, but typically 10 to 200 microns.This powder has an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder, and is very light, due to its high porosity. The typical chemical composition of oven dried diatomaceous earth is 80 to 90% silica, with 2 to 4% alumina (attributed mostly to clay minerals) and 0.5 to 2% iron oxide.Diatomaceous earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. It is used as a filtration aid, as a mild abrasive, as a mechanical insecticide, as an absorbent for liquids, as litter, as an activator in blood clotting studies, and as a component of dynamite. As it is also heat-resistant, it can be used as a thermal insulator.Diatomaceous earth is used in industry as insulating material, filter material, filler, abrasive materials, sodium silicate material, bleaching agent and catalyst carrier.
nitroglycerin could be made much more stable if absorbed in diatomite. This allows much safer transport and handling than nitroglycerin in its raw form, and the mixture is also referred to as guhr dynamite.Our Diatomaceous Earth Mill As a secondary crusher, were in the process of Diatomaceous Earth, Diatomaceous Earth can be crushed into fine customer needs, and ensure customer satisfaction.
Natural freshwater diatomaceous earth is used in agriculture for grain storage as an anticaking agent, as well as an insecticide. It is approved by the US Department of Agriculture as a feed supplement.It is also used as a neutral anthelmintic (dewormer). Some farmers add it to their livestock and poultry feed to improve the health of animals.”Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth” is widely available in agricultural feed supply stores. It is acceptable as organic feed additive for livestock.
Grinding mill of diatomaceous earth or diatomite is applied widely in paints and coatings industry. Therefore, the use of diatomaceous earth more and more widely distributed, diatomaceous earth is also used to adjust the indoor humidity, to eliminate smell and function of the room clean and disinfection, many of diatomaceous earth as raw material to the new indoor and outdoor paint, decoration materials at home and abroad more and more consumers. Materials, industrial development brought about the extensive application of powder, processed by the grinding mill can be applied to more areas of diatomite can be said that modern industry and cutting-edge science and technology and people’s lives indispensable materials, especially paint industry is indispensable.We can supply you XZM super thin grinding mill for grinding diatomaceous earth or diatomite in high efficiency. Diatomite grinder mills manufactured by China are high pressure suspension mill, Raymond mill, ball mill, Trapezium grinding mill and so on. In a word, diatomaceous earth mill or diatomite mill is used widely in related grinding industry or miningindustry.
