Gypsum is a common mineral, with thick and extensive evaporite beds in association with sedimentary rocks. Gypsum is used in a wide variety of applications, such as construction, concrete, fertilizer and so on. Gypsum crushing and grinding process is very important steps in gypsum powder production line. SBM can supply many crushers and grinding mills for gypsum crushing and grinding.
Gypsum is a very soft mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O. Gypsum is a common mineral, with thick and extensive evaporite beds in association with sedimentary rocks.
Gypsum is used in a wide variety of applications
* Gypsum Board primarily used as a finish for walls and ceilings; known in construction slang as Drywall.
* Plaster ingredient.
* A component of Portland cement used to prevent flash setting of concrete.
* Fertilizer and soil conditioner.
* A binder in fast-dry tennis court clay.
* Plaster of Paris.
* A wood substitute in the ancient world.
* A tofu coagulant, making it ultimately a major source of dietary calcium, especially in Asian cultures which traditionally use few dairy products.
* Adding hardness to water used for homebrewing.
* Soil/water potential monitoring.
* A common ingredient in making mead.
Gypsum Powder Production Line
In gypsum powder production line, gypsum powder raw materials are mainly desulfurizing gypsum powder, phosphorus gypsum powder and natural mineral gypsum powder. Gypsum powder production line can be divided into many areas, which include crushing, pre-grinding, calcining, material storage, and transportation. Gypsum powder production line in the use of the equipment in the electrical control system, dust removal system, plumbing and heating systems, grinding systems, transportation systems, crushing machine, boiling burning heaters and so on.
Gypsum Crushing and Grinding Process
Gypsum crushing and grinding process are very important steps in gypsum powder production line. SBM machinery can supply kinds of machines in this process for you. In crushing process, we can supply Jaw crusher as primary crusher, then Cone crusher or Impact crusher as fine secondary crusher. The crushed gypsum is transformed to the hopper to grinding process. In grinding process, gypsum powder out of the hopper was transfered into the Grinding mill by belt conveyor for further grinding. The Ball mill, ultrafine mill, MTW trapezium mill can be used in this process. Then the gypsum powder is selected and seperated by the classifier and get the final gypsum powder.
