Specifications

The main property of vermiculite in determining its commercial value, is the ability to dramatically increase in the volume (slough) by firing in the temperature range 400-1000 oС.

 

Exfoliated vermiculite is a loose porous material because of scaly particles of silver, gold or yellow color, is spurred by firing vermiculite concentrate - hydromica containing between elementary layers of bound water.

 

The main characteristics of expanded vermiculite are volumetric bulk weight (density) and grain composition (fraction). Volumetric bulk density depends on the grain composition, the degree of enrichment (vermiculzation) of crude, the temperature and duration of firing, the form of grains, the presence of gangue.

Вспученный вермикулит

The density of exfoliated vermiculite with grain size 2-8 mm of 65-110 kg/m3, with smaller grains, it increases to 130-150 kg/m3.

 

Thermal conductivity at 100 ºC is 0, 048 - 0, 06 W / m• K, and with increasing temperature to 400 ºC rises to 0,11-0,14 W / m• K.

Coarse vermiculite has less Îáüåìíûå weight chemmelkozernisty, as he is better bubbled during firing and imeetbolshuyu porosity than small ones.




Depending on the size of grains swollen vermiculite is divided into the following fractions:

  The low density and thermal conductivity is characterized by swollen vermiculite as a promising material for use as a heat-insulating filler in the construction of buildings.

 

High temperature resistance allows for the use of vermiculite in the manufacture of heat-resistant and fire retardant insulation.

 

Chemical and biological inertness and nesmachivaemost molten metal can be used swollen vermiculite in metallurgy and chemical industry.
