What are the uses of dolomite soil in our industry?
What is Dolomite soil?
Dolomite is one of the carbonate-bearing minerals, and is one of the carbonate rocks that is common to marine sediments. This high purity product refers to a commercially valuable dolomitic rock with a total carbonate content of over 97%, but its mineral calcite content is only 3 to 4%. Dolomite in the name of “dolostone” or “dolomite rock” also known as, the mineral dolomite sedimentary rock is often double carbonate of calcium and magnesium with the formula for CaMg (CO3) 2 is formed. It is believed that dolomite is formed after the deposition of calcareous lime mud and limestone by magnesium-rich groundwater.
Dolomite is found in massive layers of several hundred meters thick. This material makes up about 15% of the Earth’s crust and is found to be high in all parts of the world and is known as a common component of sedimentary rocks. Dolomite-containing stones are known as dolomite or dolomite limestone. Perhaps there are no other minerals, which have the use of limestone and dolomite.
Iranian dolomite mines
The amount of Iranian dolomite storage is about 44 million tons. Mining extraction of dolomite exists in the provinces of Sistan and Baluchestan, Zanjan, Kerman, Hamedan, Semnan, Tehran, Qazvin, Kermanshah, Isfahan, Khuzestan, West Azarbaijan and Fars.
The largest source and storage of dolomite in Iran is from Hamadan dolomite (about 45%). Dolomite is located in this city with a lot of thickness on the limestone of the region and is located in the fault adjacent to the younger organization.
Dolomite and limestone rocks are very similar to each other. The range is white to gray and white to light brown in both limestone and dolomite. These two minerals have the same hardness and dissolve both in dilute chloric acid. Slag and dolomite are used for cutting as a building material and are used for acid neutralization.
Application of dolomite soil:
1. pH controller
2- Preparation of manganese from seawater
3. Production of oxide and magnesium hydroxide
4. The metal smelting industry is as a blast
5. Laxing, painting and crystallization industries, casting, water treatment
6- Agriculture (as fertilizer and regulating pH of nutrients in soil)
7. Refractory industries (bricks, cementing, etc.) Filler in rubber
8. Construction industry (ceramic tile, cobblestone, glazing, etc.)
Dolomite as a source of CaO and MgO in metallic melting (ferrous and non-ferrous) industries, agriculture (as fertilizer and soil regulator), manganese from seawater, refractory (bricks, cementing, etc.), glass, industries Construction (ceramic tiles, slabs, etc.), fillers in rubber, lacquer, paintwork.
The division of carbonate rocks based on the amount of dolomite:
1- Limestone: A stone containing 0 to 10% of dolomite.
2. Dolomitic limestone: A stone containing 10 to 50 percent of dolomite.
Calcite dolomite: A stone containing 50 to 90 percent of dolomite.
4. Dolostone: A rock that contains 90 to 100 percent dolomite.
We provide the required amount of dolomite in bulk and powder in a variety of packaging.
