Barite, as a kind of important raw materials of non-metallic minerals, whose composition is of BaSO4, is kind of sulfate minerals with orthogonal (oblique) crystal. Usually barite is of thick-plate shape or columnar crystals, mostly compact block or plate object, granular aggregates. The mohs hardness of barite rock is of 3 – 3.5 and its proportion is between 4.0 and 4.6.
Crushed barite is widely used in industries. For instance, to add barite powder into mud will increase the weight of slurry in which the degree of crushed barite powder's fineness must be up to 325 meshes. In paint industry, it requires the crushed barite, which is added to increase film thickness, strength and durability, must be of adequate fineness and high whiteness. In paper, rubber and plastics industries, grinded barite is also used as filler which can improve the hardness, wear and aging resistance of rubber and plastic. At present, the tires of heavy road construction equipment are partially filled with barite to increase the weight, which will help lay solid fill areas.
Before being widely used in various industries, barite mine must be quarried and barite will be crushed and grinded in the beneficiation plant. For barite crushing, you should pay attention to the crusher machine's final size which will directly affect your products' granularity. Here you can find the best crushers for barite mining.
By combining traditional crushers' technologies with knowledge of high performance hydraulic pressure, CGM is able to provide solutions for a broad range of barite crushing. These crushers include JC series European Jaw Crusher, HPC series Hydraulic Cone Crusher, PFW series Hydraulic Impact crusher and VSI5X series Vertical Shaft Impact Crusher, etc. From primary crushing to tertiary crushing through secondary crush, we will tailor it for you. Aside from stationary barite crushing plant, we can design a whole mobile crushing screening plant for your barite mining.
