Bentonite acts as a binding agent in the manufacture of iron ore pellets. CMS INDUSTRIES IOP grade bentonite is not only economical binding agent but also has excellent green and dry ball strength although it contains low silica which reduces extra slag formation and contains higher natural percentage of iron, which makes it ideal for isolating iron ore pellets with the maximum percentage of iron. It can also withstand higher temperatures since it contains more percentage of metal. It has higher water update & retention capacity which eventually results into good water absorption and enables easy and faster formation of pellets though maintains excellent bonding and binding strength before and after. It can be used in steel industries, planes and bridge industries.
There are mainly two types of bentonite i.e. Calcium Bentonite and Sodium Bentonite. They are used in following industries which are as follows: Oil Drilling Bentonite, Foundry Bentonite, Animal Feed Bentonite, Paper Bentonite, Civil Engineering Bentonite, Construction Bentonite, Pilling Bentonite, Geosynthetic Clay Liner Bentonite, Agriculture Bentonite, Horizontal Direction Drilling Bentonite, Iron Ore Pelletizing Bentonite, Water Well Drilling Bentonite, Cat Litter Bentonite, Earthing Bentonite, Water Treatment Bentonite, Pond Sealing Bentonite and Cosmetic Bentonite.
