  Andalusite (Andalusite) is a kind of aluminum silicate minerals, it is a manufacturer of spark plugs in the refractory materials and porcelain. Its chemical composition Al2SiO5; Contain the Al2O3 was 63.1%, including SiO2 is 36.9%, sometimes contain manganese, iron and other impurities. Andalusite is a variant called chiastolite. In chiastolite section will present a black cross structure. The cross structure is received in the form of some andalusite caused by carbon and clay. This chiastolite were often made people wear small decorations. Andalusite typically show columnar crystal, its cross section is almost square. Andalusite in 1380 ℃ will be broken down into the rich aluminum, andalusite is a kind of advanced refractory, gorgeous colour and lustre is transparent andalusite can be used as ornaments, is a kind of precious stones. Andalusite in Spain for the first time in 1789, anda Lucia officially released, so words in Europe is known as "anda Lucia stone".

  7 ore properties editor

  Mineral composition of the ore

  Andalusite most porphyroblast structure. Spot intracrystalline carbon, quartz, mica, metal mineral, garnet, tourmaline, etc. Some of the associated minerals such as garnet, carbon by dressing, such as recycling.

  Objective mineral characteristics of the mineral

  General characteristics: andalusite belong to orthorhombic system, crystal along the C axis is rhombic prism shape. Due to the cylindrical Angle is about 89 ℃, thus four square shape looks like. Aggregate radiated, granular, visible penetration twin. Cylinder (110) completely. Color is gray, yellow, red, purple, green and brown. Hardness is 6.9 ~ 7.4. The proportion of 3.12 ~ 3.19. Chip colorless, sometimes with a slight pink hue, color distribution is often not even on the same one-sided, shades, punctate. Parallel or symmetric extinction, with weak pleochroism, Npi reddish (1.629 ~ 1.639), the Nm light green (1.633 ~ 1.639), Ng light green (1.637 ~ 1.637). Moderate the positive real; (-) 2 v = 80 ~ 86 °. Transverse section nearly square, sometimes visible two groups nearly orthogonal cleavage. In the red stone, sometimes saw a black carbonaceous inclusions (chiastolite) can be said. Advantage of the characteristics of andalusite with more color to distinguish between it and the silicon line stone.

  No electric magnetic surface performance: andalusite itself, but its surface properties and determines the key type and degree of fracture surface fracture, which related to its crystal chemistry process. It will produce high-energy crystal was broken combination advantage of cationic Al3 +, Fe2 +, etc. Andalusite surface hydrophilic, broken after its partially there is metal cation. Zero electric point PH 7.2, generally higher than silicate broken objects. Andalusite mineral from Al - O and Si - O keys. Lead the oxygen body PH = 9, a zero isoelectric point. And quartz at PH = 2 or slightly larger than 2, in zero electric point. Which can be thought of alumina silicate minerals of zero electric point between 2 ~ 9, this property is beneficial to their separation purification.

  Chemical composition: andalusite is anhydrous silicate, which belongs to disthene clan. The chemical formula for SiO2, Al2O3 or Al2O [SiO4]. Theory of chemical composition: 63.1% Al2O3, SiO2 36.9%, but due to reasons such as metallogenic crystallization, alteration, weathering, lattice often contain some impurities such as Ag, Fe, Ti, the chemical analysis results deviate from the theoretical value.

  8 feature editing process

  Industrial use of andalusite, mainly take the characteristics of high temperature resistance. Under ordinary conditions of andalusite after heated to 1350 ℃, start into parallel to the original crystal acicular mullite. Mullite crystal is the only stable aluminum silicate under high temperature, in the form of its theoretical conversion rate of 87.64%.

  Andalusite in heating into the process of mullite, can form a good network of mullite volume expansion of about 4%. This is a kind of irreversible crystal transformation, once the transformation, has higher fireproof performance, can reach more than 1800 ℃, refractoriness and quench heat resistance, mechanical strength, thermal shock is strong, strong slag resistance, high load conversion point and high chemical stability (even not soluble in hydrofluoric acid) and strong resistance to chemical corrosion.

  9 main use editor

  In view of andalusite with physical and chemical properties, is one of the known high quality refractory materials. It except for smelting industry senior refractories, technical ceramics industrial raw materials, can also be silicon smelting high strength lightweight aluminum alloy, metal fiber and supersonic aircraft and spacecraft oriented. It is reported that foreign is the use of rich aluminum andalusite for coal gasification and making radome. Part of crystallization of good, bright color can also be making crafts and decorations. Continues to expand its application field.

  Production of monolithic refractories

  The metallurgical processes such as to improve the high temperature operation has a special benefit. Monolithic refractories used directly, without burning can save fuel energy, and its volume stability at high temperature, has a great influence on its service life. Practice, if the ratio of burn and plastic injection according to use, can contain a certain amount of clay and inorganic binder, thus causing monolithic refractories in the process of high temperature and cooling shrinkage, cracks and peeling, shorten the service life of refractory material. In order to control and reduce the rate of refractory products at high temperature for a long time under the contract, if add quantitative andalusite in ingredients, using the expansion and stable characteristics, can eliminate the phenomenon of amorphous material closed above narrow, prolong the service life of the material can be up to five years.

  Refractory brick

  Andalusite is made after calcining profiles and can be used for hot blast stove, hot wind tower, again hyped and other key parts, also can be used for all sorts of auxiliary pouring and operating equipment, also can make the kiln facilities, high temperature aluminum silicate insulation, aluminum casting mould material. Use refractory fibre lining made of andalusite, than fire clay or light brick lining can be 30 ~ 50% energy saving. Use of andalusite brick can reduce fuel consumption, increasing the stability, also can save more than 40% of the general the consumption of refractory material.

  Production of silicon aluminium alloy, alumina and aluminum metal materials: because of andalusite Al2O3 content high, iron, titanium and calcium oxide, such as low content of impurities, used in the production of alumina 60% silicon aluminum alloy, can need not alumina, can simplify the production process and improve production efficiency.

  Starting in the seventy s, andalusite is widely paid great attention in industrial production in our country, its application fields are also expanding rapidly. Andalusite formed after calcination mullite has high refractoriness, chemical stability and mechanical strength, so in metallurgy, building materials and other industrial department is widely used. Table 3 lists the main purpose of the andalusite minerals.

  10 use method editor

  Domestic started the exploration work of andalusite in 1978, and successively andalusite mineral processing laboratory work, explore the characteristics of the work is: not according to the requirement of refractory products, the composition of particle size of andalusite concentrate, skeleton (coarse fine particle packing) considering the classification process. Is using magnetic separation, flotation; Magnetic separation - gravity separation, flotation and other joint don't process. Undressed ore containing 10-18%, andalusite andalusite concentrate containing Al2O3 acquired 55-57%, andalusite mineral recovery rate is about 60%. The mineral processing equipment are in the mid - 80 production equipment at home. South Africa is one of the world's largest abroad andalusite manufacture and exporter.

  South Africa around the sorting process is basically the same, in the process adopts heavy medium cyclone preconcentration, then magnetic separation is used to control, the production of andalusite effective separation method in South Africa, will eventually get inclusive of our 58% Al2O3 acuity, Fe2O3 andalusite concentrate of 0.9% or less.

  Andalusite is fine grained disseminated in France. Grinding ore to 1.6 mm first ruled out by magnetic separation method, magnetic material enrichment of andalusite, and again with heavy medium cyclone two purification, andalusite concentrate can be obtained with Al2O358 %, Fe2O31. 0%.

  Firms in 1987, France, Switzerland first new flotation process, the PH < 3.5, the pulp density of 15 ~ 30%, using alkyl sulfonate as collector to andalusite ore, so as to choose the highest standards of andalusite concentrate - level KF, including Al2O360 %, Fe2O30. 6%, the law in 1989, the European patent application.

  Useful elements and associated elements. The influence of the raw material

  Although with disthene andalusite, silicon wire of the same chemical formula, but its lattice often contain iron oxide and manganese oxide, gray and yellow color; Such as manganese content variation in dark green, called manganese andalusite. Andalusite crystal structure transition is disthene to a silicon line stone; Its existence in the argillaceous and carbon - argillaceous shale, and quartz, garnet, corundum, disthene, mica, limonite, manganese ore, rutile, pyrite and other mineral symbiosis. According to the ore and mineral composition, andalusite schist and hornfels divides into two types. Schist type andalusite ore genesis of andalusite with garnet and staurolite and quartz phenocryst piece make; Substrate is mainly composed of mica, granular quartz sand and carbon, clay, iron content. Ore plate shaped and argillaceous lamellar structure. Hornfels andalusite ore is biotite, quartz diorite hydrothermalism metamorphism; Andalusite and chlorite, mica, carbonaceous phenocryst. Substrate by white mica, quartz, sericite, black mica, plagioclase, the argillaceous rock debris collection, weak magnetism. Followed by a small amount of monomer quartz, feldspar, tourmaline, zircon, rutile, apatite, limonite and so on. Andalusite crystals inside often contain more carbon, argillaceous become chiastolite inclusions, and make the andalusite color black. In view of this, for larger granularity of andalusite occurrence of andalusite ore, because single andalusite mineral surface adhesion by the relative weight of monomer andalusite impurities, and therefore easy to get with high Al2O3 andalusite concentrate products. Conversely, such as andalusite occurrence particle size small, must be fine grinding, remove impurities of mineral part weight, surface adhesion, can obtain qualified concentrate in the end. Therefore, andalusite ore genesis of andalusite crystals size but don't choose ease and flow structure is very important factor. Gangue mineral occurrence state and influence process and ore dressing indexes of another important factor. Feldspar, muddy clay mineral, quartz and limonite, biotite mutual cementation, into a state of cuttings, and weak magnetism, can make magnetic separation shall be chosen. Cuttings of Fe2O3 composition mainly biotite into, black mica content in cuttings is more, than the magnetization coefficient is larger, the more susceptible to magnetic elected.
