Limestone for Glass Industry
Specifications for Limestone in Glass making : Limestone is an important raw material in glassmaking and is used as a stabilizer to improves the mechanical properties and physical appearance of the glass.
Glass industry required high limestone (CaCO3: 94.5%) and combined CaCO3 and MgCO3 should be 97.5%. Iron and other colouring matter like carbon are regarded as objectionable. For colourless glass, limestone should not be more than 0.04% Iron content; and for bottle glass Fe2O3 up to 0.05% is used.
Limestone from Gaurika Mineral's captive mines at Khimsar-Rajasthan is best for the glass industry as it has a high purity with :
A : low Iron limestone content typically < 0.03% Fe2O3 and very low levels of undesirables and contaminants
B : High Calcium Limestone content in the order of 98.5% CaCO3
C : Consistent Magnesium content typically of 1% MgCO3. The Limestone that is produced can have both economic and environmental benefits to the glass producers.
