Bentonite is a montmorillonite-based water-bearing clay ore. The chemical composition of montmorillonite is: (Al2, Mg3) Si4O10 OH2· nH2O, because it has a special nature. Such as swelling properties, cohesiveness, adsorption, catalysis, thixotropy, suspension, and cation exchange. So it is widely used in various industrial fields.
Bentonite Cat Litter is a multi-purpose mineral, its quality and application areas mainly depends on the montmorillonite content and the type of properties and its crystal chemical properties. Therefore, its development and utilization must vary according to the mine, depending on the role of different. Such as the production of activated clay, calcium-based sodium, for drilling drilling with oil drilling, instead of starch for spinning, printing and dyeing of the slurry, building materials with interior and exterior paint, the preparation of organic Bentonite Cat Litter, Bentonite Cat Litter 4A zeolite, the production of white carbon black and so on.
Calcium and sodium base differences
The type of interlayer cation of Bentonite Cat Litter determines the type of Bentonite Cat Litter, the interlayer cation is Na + when called sodium Bentonite Cat Litter; interlayer cation Ca + is called calcium Bentonite Cat Litter. Sodium montmorillonite (or sodium Bentonite Cat Litter) is better than calcium. However, the distribution of calcareous soil in the world is much wider than that of sodium soil. Therefore, in addition to strengthening the search for sodium soil, it is necessary to modify the calcareous soil, making it a sodium soil.
