SHORT DESCRIPTION

Bentonite belongs to a class of clay minerals known as smectites. It is mainly composed of montmorillonite, a type of clay mineral, along with other minerals such as quartz, feldspar, and gypsum that are formed from the weathering of volcanic ash. The specific composition can vary depending on the source. The crystal structure of montmorillonite imparts certain unique characteristics to bentonite. It has a high surface area and is capable of absorbing and holding water molecules.

APPLICATION

  1. Swelling Properties: One of the most distinctive features of bentonite is its ability to swell and absorb water. When it comes into contact with water, the individual platelets in the clay structure separate, causing the clay to expand and swell. This property makes it valuable in certain applications.
  2. Drilling Fluids: Bentonite is commonly used in drilling fluids in the oil and gas industry. It helps to lubricate the drill bit, cool the drilling equipment, and remove drill cuttings.
  3. Foundry Industry: Bentonite is used as a bonding material in the preparation of molding sand for the production of metal castings.
  4. Food Industry: Bentonite is used in the food industry as a clarifying agent for beverages such as wine and fruit juices. It helps remove impurities and particles, improving the clarity of the final product.
  5. Environmental Cleanup: Bentonite is used in environmental applications, such as sealing or lining ponds and landfills to prevent the leakage of liquids.
