Quartzite — a naturally occurring mineral, widely used in construction and production of ferroalloys. It is used in metallurgy as a flux and is known for its excellent fire-resistance: in order to melt it or even to deform it, the furnace needs to develop temperature up to at least +1,770 C.
CPM Trading SIA offers wide range of ground and crushed quartzites, and also fire-resistant fillers from quartzite, used for lining of heat generating units. As the official leader of the private joint stock company “Tolkachevskiy Mining and Processing Plant” in the territory of EU, we can deliver any amount of material you need!
Quartzite is a fire-resistant and heat-resistant material used in dozens of industrial sectors. It does not accumulate radiation and harmful substances, it is completely ecological, wonderful and reliable material!
Area of application of metallurgical quartzite is exceptionally wide:
- production of ferroalloys;
- silica products;
- fire-resistant coatings;
- acid-resistant mixtures
- concrete products and mixtures;
- pots for induction ovens;
- linings for pouring ladles
- heat generating units;
- gunning mixes etc.
Quartzite — extraordinary beautiful stone. It excels with its even and smooth surface. Due to is aesthetic properties, heterogeneity of its texture and extensive pallet of white, pink and grey shades, it is very demanded in architecture and decorative applications in buildings. Demand for the quartzite is explained by its strength and durability.
It is unusually durable and hard variety with white, grey or pale red shade. It always contains quartz with insignificant amounts of admixtures of other minerals. Quartzite has high resistance to rupture, that can be achieved by crushing in various conditions. Its application includes road-bed in motor road construction and railway tracks, filling of foundations and alloyage of various makes of grain-oriented steel and structural iron. During regenerative process of this natural material, one obtains silicon, which is taken as the basic material of ferrosilicon — material used for deoxidisation of mild types of steel.
