Refractory materials are an integral part of foundries and other high-temperature operations; chrome compounds can add useful properties to well-established materials.
Magnetite has many applications beyond iron and steel, here we look at its applications in coatings, pigments and dyes, recording media and in the Fischer-Tropsch process.
Green sand is a compound mixture used for casting of metals, the most widely used moulding type in furnace and foundry applications.
Although, Petrobond and clay dust sands share several properties in common, coal dust according to a recent study has been shown to possess some characteristics that gives it an upper hand in a casting process.
Using anthracite and garnet as solvent extraction filter media enhances the solvent extraction-electrowinning process for extracting metals from their ores.
The use of iron pyrite powder in the manufacture of brake shoes and resin bonded grinding wheels affords desirable properties such as longevity and resilience, in addition to enhancements in the braking and grinding processes.
We will explore the ways in which anthracite can be used to render salinated water potable and drinkable.
For water filtration, why do we use Anthracite filter media? Why its properties make it ideal for water filtration and wastewater treatment?
Glass as filtration media is gaining popularity as an alternative to sand silica. This is because it does a better job and it is in generous supply.
Chrome flour (also known as iron chromite, chromite powder, chrome flour 325, and chromite flour) is an inorganic compound that is used as a pigment.
Black brick pigment, also known as, black ceramic oxide, black clay oxide, or simply K37, is one of the most striking new colours to use in new builds.
