Light-burned magnesia powder, short for light-burned magnesia powder, is a kind of magnesite, brucite and light-burned powder manufacturer from seawater or brine.
Activated magnesium oxide was obtained by calcining the extracted magnesium hydroxide at 800 ~ 1000 (?) Light burnt magnesia powder is a light yellow and light brown powder. Its particle size is mostly below 100 mesh. Its crystal density is 3.07-3.22g/cm3. It has large lattice constant, many lattice defects, brittle texture, porous structure and high reactivity. It is easy to react with water to form Mg(OH)2, which hardens and has bonding ability.
Selection of calcination method and control of light-burning temperature are important means to obtain good activity. With the increase of calcination temperature, the specific surface area of MgO decreases significantly. The recrystallization rate of MgO increases, the dispersion decreases sharply and the activity decreases when the temperature is higher than 1000 C. Different calcination methods and equipment at the same temperature are also important factors affecting MgO activity. If calcined in fluidized bed furnace and suspension furnace, it can decompose rapidly in an instant, and the lightly burned magnesia powder with the greatest activity can be obtained. Using tunnel kiln and reflective kiln as large blocks, the calcination time is long, and the surface is often overburned while the interior is burned, which will reduce the activity of light-burned magnesia powder. When calcining granular magnesite in rotary kiln, the situation is between the two, and the activity of light-burned magnesia powder can also be maintained.
Light burnt magnesia powder is a kind of raw material with medium basicity and chemical activity. It is used in other industrial fields besides refractory and cementitious materials. In addition, the development of converter slag splashing technology has further expanded the application scope of light burning magnesia powder. At present, the slag splashing technology mostly uses light-burned magnesia powder as pellets, such as light-burned magnesia powder pellets, carbon-containing light-burned magnesia pellets and carbon-containing calcium-containing light-burned magnesia pellets.
