Bentonite Uses

Bentonite is essentially highly plastic clay containing not less than 85% clay mineral, montmorillonite. Bentonite is of a great commercial importance possessing inherent bleaching properties like fuller's earth, hence, it is known as bleaching clay.

Bentonite is an impure and absorbent clay mineral that is mostly composed of a hydrous aluminum silicate called montmorillonite. It is highly colloidal plastic clay. It has the property of swelling to many times its original volume when treated with water. There are different types of bentonite depending on their composition and key elements like potassium, calcium, sodium and aluminum. Bentonite is formed by the action of weather conditions on volcanic ash deposits in the presence of water.

Bentonite Mining Operation

Bentonite is exploited mainly from manual mines. The bentonite deposit is very close to the surface and mined to a depth of 25 metres. A few mine owners in Kachchh and Bhavnagar districts of Gujarat deploy shovels and dumpers for mining, haulage, etc. Working of bentonite often involves selective mining, blending and processing to achieve the required grade.

The processing involves drying, grinding, sizing and at times use of additive for cation exchange. The mined material is first graded and sun-dried before pulverisation. Bentonite is processed generally by simple milling techniques that involve removal of water grinding it to the appropriate sizes.
