What is Gypsum Powder Used for?
This dried powder is typically used for the manufacturing of gypsum wallboard (drywall) found in homes and commercial buildings.
Gypsum powder can also be used as a base to create plaster of Paris, glass making and to set retarder in Portland cement.
Gypsum is also commonly used in a wide range of agricultural applications, such as:
- Acid soil amelioration
- Sodic soil reclamation
- Feedlot surface stabilization
- Other soil conditioning purposes
What is a Gypsum Powder Grinding Mill or Pulverizer?
A gypsum powder grinding mill or pulverizing machine from Williams Patent Crusher will reduce your large rock materials into smaller materials. This makes the gypsum easier to work with. Our machines are engineered to handle any gypsum size reduction project.
Williams’ machinery is suitable for the processing of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) gypsum and natural gypsum rock. FGD is a type of gypsum that falls under the category of synthetic gypsum.
These machines are suitable for manufacturers of drywall, fertilizers and others who need a large volume of fine ground gypsum.
How is Gypsum Manufactured?
Natural gypsum, also known as “calcium sulfate dihydrate,” is a mineral that’s found in sedimentary rock formations. This mineral can be found in 85 different countries, making it an abundant resource and a popular export in many nations.
The rock containing gypsum is mined or quarried, then pulverized to a fine powder. After being transformed into a powder, the powder undergoes calcining. Calcining is the process of removing water from the powder.
