Kaolin (hydrated aluminium silicate, Al2Si2O5(OH)4) is the most important of the industrial clays in terms of both consumption and value. Properties of fine particle size, platy shape, inertness, non-toxicity, high brightness and whiteness make it a very versatile mineral, with applications in a wide variety of industries. Commercial kaolin resources are found as sedimentary deposits and as weathering or hydrothermal alteration products of rocks containing a high proportion of alumino-silicate minerals.

Range of Kaolin Capabilities:

  • Metallurgical testplans

  • Flowsheets
  • Mass balances
  • P&ID
  • Vendor evaluation
  • Project implementation
  • Engineering studies
  • Environmental studies/Equipment lists
  • Process description
