Calcium Carbonate Grinding Mill & Powder Modify

05/05/2022 admin

Calcium carbonate grinding mill is an efficient industrial ultrafine powder mill. It can grind calcium carbonate into fine and superfine powder(150-3000mesh). SBM is China’s famous calcium carbonate grinding mill manufacturer. Its self-developed HGM series ultrafine grinding mills and CLUM series ultrafine vertical roller mills are the most popular. They can both grind more than 100 kinds of non-metallic ore materials that include calcium carbonate.

What is calcium carbonate & its uses?

Calcium carbonate (CaCO₃) is an inorganic compound, commonly known as limestone, limestone, stone powder, etc. It is alkaline, basically insoluble in water, but soluble in hydrochloric acid.

Calcium carbonate is one of the common substances on the earth. It exists in aragonite, calcite, chalk, limestone, marble, travertine, and other rocks. It is also the main component of some animal bones or shells.

Calcium carbonate is also important building material, and it has a wide range of industrial uses. It is used in papermaking, metallurgy, glass, alkali making, rubber, medicine, pigments, organic chemicals, and other sectors.

Calcium carbonate crushing and grinding process

According to different production methods, calcium carbonate can be divided into heavy calcium carbonate, light calcium carbonate, colloidal calcium carbonate, and crystalline calcium carbonate.

Heavy calcium carbonate is made by mechanical methods (using a fine powder mill or other industrial grinding mills) to directly crush natural calcite, limestone, chalk, shells, etc.

Light calcium carbonate is prepared by using limestone and other raw materials through a series of chemical reactions to obtain calcium carbonate precipitation, and finally through dehydration, drying, crushing, and grinding.

Common calcium carbonate production lines are inseparable from industrial grinding mill machines. After being ground into powder, calcium carbonate has a filling function. It is a good additive and is widely used.

Stage 1: broken
First use a jaw crusher to initially crush the large pieces of calcium carbonate, and then use a hammer crusher or a cone crusher to crush it to the fineness of the feed material (10mm-20mm) that can enter the mill.

Stage 2: grinding
The crushed small pieces of calcium carbonate are sent to the silo by elevator, and the vibrating feeder sends them to the grinding chamber of the mill evenly and quantitatively for grinding. For fine powder processing, SBM industrial calcium carbonate grinding mill is recommended.

Stage 3: powder classification
The ground calcium carbonate powder is classified by the classifier, and the unqualified powder is returned to the host for re-grinding.

Stage 4: collecting fans
The powder conforming to the fineness enters the dust collector with the airflow for separation and collection. Then it is sent to the finished product silo and then packed by a powder tanker or an automatic baler.

Recommended calcium carbonate grinding mill

Most of the production process of calcium carbonate is inseparable from the milling process. Common calcium carbonate powders include 300 mesh, 400 mesh, 600 mesh, 800 mesh, 1200 mesh, 1500 mesh, and 2000 mesh. Their uses are more extensive.

The calcium carbonate ultrafine grinding mill developed and produced by SBM can meet the needs of calcium carbonate milling. The fineness of the finished product produced by the SBM ultrafine powder grinder machine can be freely adjusted between 150-3000 mesh. In addition to grinding calcium carbonate, it can also be used to grind more than 100 other non-metallic ores with Mohs hardness less than 6.

Modification of calcium carbonate powder

1. Reasons for modification of calcium carbonate powder

The surface modification of calcium carbonate by powder modifier can improve the application performance of calcium carbonate, improve the applicability, and expand the market and dosage. In the future, functionalization and specialization will become the main trend in the development of calcium carbonate, and the product structure will also undergo great changes.

(1) Broaden application areas
Surface-modified calcium carbonate has better hydrophilic and lipophilic properties, reduced oil absorption, better dispersibility, coverage rate, and color. It is better used in high-end fields such as plastics, coatings, rubber, paper, sealants, and breathable membranes.

(2) Improve more functional properties of calcium carbonate powder

(3) Increase the added value of calcium carbonate products

(4) Development trend of calcium carbonate industry

2. How to modify calcium carbonate powder?

When grinding calcium carbonate with SBM ultra-fine grinding mill machine, a powder modifier can also be added directly to mix and grind with the material. The finished powder after grinding is the modified powder. But the quality of powder modified by powder surface coating machines will be better.

SBM Powder Surface Coating Machine can realize the surface modification of calcium carbonate powder and improve the application performance of calcium carbonate. If there is a need for powder modification, our designers will directly configure the equipment in the production line plan.
