kaolin powder is used in various commercial cosmetic products. Kaolin clay helps in removing blackheads and dirt from the skin and skin pores. Another wide application of kaolin powder is the paper industry. Kaolin powder is used to produce glossy paper which is widely used in magazines and newspapers.
It is used as a filler in the bulk of paper and also used as a coating on the surface that gives a glossy look to the paper. Due to those wide applications of kaolin powder, investing the kaolin industry can be a wide choice for those mining investors. It is no wonder that kaolin powder making machines becomes more and more popular nowadays.
Kaolin Powder Making Machine—LM Vertical Mill
In the kaolin industry, LM series vertical mills are used as the kaolin powder making machine. This series vertical mills are mainly applied in processing kaolin, quartz, slag, cement clinker, zircon sand, fly ash and other non-flammable as well as non-explosive materials, whose hardness below 9.3-the Moh's hardness.
Typically, The construction area of LM vertical mill is 70% is that of ball mill, and the building space is 50-60% that of ball mill. Compared with other types of mill, LM series vertical grinding mill can reduce 30% to 40% of energy consumption. In addition, LM series vertical mills can dry 12-15% of the moisture of material, which can significantly improve the quality of kaolin powder.
Kaolin Powder Production Line
Typically, the production process of kaolin powder can be divided into two significant stages, including the crushing stage and grinding stage. And the two stages are made up of the kaolin powder production line, or kaolin clay production line.
Firstly, large stones of kaolin are sent regularly by the vibrating feeder to the primary jaw crusher, and then they will be sent to the secondary jaw crusher to be crushed again. The crushed material then is sent by belt conveyor to vibrating screen to be separated. The suitable size can be sent to the VSI crusher, while unsuitable material is sent back to the secondary jaw crusher to be crushed again.
The crushed material from the VSI crusher is sent back to the vibrating screen to be separated. Then kaolin particles should be sent to the LM series vertical mill to produce micron kaolin powder. After that, the whole production process is finished.
