Kaolin is a clay mineral, part of the group of industrial minerals with the chemical composition Al2Si2O5(OH)4. It is a layered silicate mineral, with one tetrahedral sheet of silica (SiO4) linked through oxygen atoms to one octahedral sheet of alumina (AlO6) octahedra. Rocks that are rich in kaolinite are known as kaolin or china clay.

Feeding System

The limestone is fed into the bucket elevator and subsequently transported to the raw material warehouse for grinding.

Grinding System

After grinding, the finished products are gathered by powder concentrator, and then conveyed to a screw conveyor.

Product Conveying System

The finished products are transported to the storage warehouse, while the excess gas is filtered by the dust collector.

Dust Removal System

The whole system is equipped with three pulse dust collectors to guarantee that the whole system is free of dust leakage.

Control System

The system is outfitted with an intelligent PLC control cabinet and an upper computer.

The primary use of kaolin is in the paper industry. It serves as a paper coating which improves appearance by contributing to brightness, smoothness and gloss. It also improves printability. Additionally, it is used by the paper industry as a filler reducing cost and the use of tree-based resources.

Many people are under the mistaken impression that the only use for kaolin is in the manufacture of china. This is not true, and its use by the paper industry far exceeds its other uses. However, kaolin still serves as a valuable component in china and other tablewares. Its color, gloss and hardness are ideal characteristics for such products.

The bonds between the kaolin and the polymers provide enhanced mechanical strength, improved impact and flex strength, and a high degree of hydrophobicity. Kaolin also acts as a titanium dioxide extender, which means less of the expensive additive is needed to yield sharper colors. In rubber, kaolin performs as a processing aide, giving the material dependable curing rates and increased strength with better resistance to tears and abrasions.
