Barite Crusher

Barite Crusher

Barite crystals were large tubular, sometimes together to form the crystal rose crystal block shape or bifurcation, this is known as crested barite. Pure barite is colorless and transparent, while the general was white, light yellow, with glass luster. Barite can be used as white pigment, can also be used in chemical, paper making, textile packing, in glass production it can act as a flux and to increase the brightness of glass. But it is most important is used as a weighting agent in drilling and refining industry in the barium.

Barite Application

Barite is kind of non-metallic mineral products which take the barium sulfate (BaSO4) as the main component. Pure barite is colorless and transparent, while generally the mineral rocks are white, light yellow with glass gloss. Barite can be used as white pigments (commonly known as lithopone). Also the barite can be used in chemical, paper making, textile filler. In glass production it can act as a flux and increase the brightness of glass. The most important application for the barite rocks is as a weighting agent used in drilling and refining industry to refine barium.

Barite Crushing and Grinding Equipment

The hardness of barite is generally 3 ~ 3.5 (Mo) with the characteristics of big proportion, low hardness, brittle. As very important non-metallic mineral raw materials, barite is widely used in industrial. At present, the heavy road construction equipment tires are partially filled with barite to increase the weight, which will help compact the filled areas.

For barite quarry or mining, it’s important to design and choose suitable barite crushing plant including barite crusher and barite grinding machine. When choosing the right barite crusher, you should consider the reduction ratio according to the requirement of the barite crushing system. If you need big reduction ratio, it’s better to choose hammer crusher and impact crusher. The reduction ratio of these barite crushers are generally 10~35.

After primary crush by the barite crushers, you can install barite grinding machine which is decided according to the final particle size requirement. For barite further grinding, there are ball mill, coal mill, Raymond mill, coarse powder grinding mill, etc.

To separate different sizes of barite final products, vibrating screen is usually playing its great role. All in all, to design a complete barite crushing plant, you need to choose a suitable mining equipment manufacturer. Apart from the high quality barite crushing equipment and barite grinding machine, perfect services are also important.
