5 Factors Affecting Silica Sand Flotation

5 Factors Affecting Silica Sand Flotation

Nov 23, 2020 · Flotation is one of the commonly used methods for silica sand beneficiation. It is mainly used to remove mica and feldspar minerals that are symbiotic with silica sand. However, in the actual production process, the flotation process will be affected by many factors, including: feed size, slurry temperature, slurry liquid chemical composition, flotation reagents and other flotation conditions.

Sand mining

Sand mining

Sand mining is the extraction of sand, mainly through an open pit (or sand pit) but sometimes mined from beaches and inland dunes or dredged from ocean and river beds. Sand is often used in manufacturing, for example as an abrasive or in is also used on icy and snowy roads usually mixed with salt, to lower the melting point temperature, on the road surface.

What is Silica Sand Used For?

What is Silica Sand Used For?

Silica sand, also known as quartz sand, white sand, or industrial sand, is made up of two main elements: silica and oxygen. Specifically, silica sand is made up of silicon dioxide (SiO2). Silica sand deposits are most commonly surfacemined in open pit operations, but dredging and underground mining are also employed.
