What is gypsum?
The general definition of gypsum; Gypsum, chemically known as “calcium sulfate dihydrate,” is a soft and natural mineral composed of calcium sulfate (CaSO4) and two molecules od water (H2O), with chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O.
Calcination of gypsum
Gypsum calcination is very crucial step of whole production process, which affects the quality of the palsterboard that is produced by using this gypsum powder.
During calcination process gypsum is cooked at a temperature of between 630-650°C and adjusted to remain within half a molecule of water. Calcined gypsum, passes through the grinding and separation units according to product type.
The technology and process of gypsum calcination that we use ensures the highest quality plasterboard production. We supply complete calcination lines including:
- Crushers, screens, belt conveyors
