Gypsum Production Plants and Equipments
Gypsum is common name for a mineral compound called calcium sulp. dihydroxide, or sulphate of lime. It is generally found underground near limestone or other minerals formed by evaporation. One of the most common forms of raw gypsum is a pure white crystal called alabaster.
Another unprocessed type forms in desert terrain and its crystals resemble the petals of a flower. The calcium and sulfur molecules in gypsum are chemically bound to water, this material is routinely heated in order to remove 50% to 75% of its original moisture. The resulting powder is called burnt gypsum, although its white or translucent color does not change. This dehydrated form is valued for its ability to solidify almost immediately after water is added to it.
Another use for gypsum is the formation of drywall panels. During home construction, these panels are nailed into place to form a finished wall. Gypsum is naturally resistant to fire and heat, which helps it form a barrier between combustible wooden frames and the room itself. These drywall boards can also be cut to size without elaborate tools, making an ideal building material.
Gypsum Production Processes
Gypsum is found as a natural occurrence in rock. Pure gypsum is a white rock but impurities can color it grey, brown or pink. Its scientific name is calcium sulphate dehydrate or hydrous calcium sulphate. The process of calcination of gypsum starts with quarrying raw gypsum and then size reduction of the rock through crushing, grinding and screening, before being heated to reduce the moisture content.
Project Plus provides complete series of gypsum powder production plant.
Gypsum crushing is the crucial stage in gypsum production line, especially when following heating is going to be carried out a pan instead of a shaft kiln. Crushing machine is primary size reduction plant for gypsum powder making. The often used crusher plant includes jaw crusher, impact crusher, cone crusher.
