  •  The use of garnet abrasives

Most of us know garnet as a kind of gemstone or ornament, but few of us know that garnet can be used as an abrasive in industry. Today I’m going to tell you about the use of garnet abrasives and how to identify high quality garnet abrasives.

Depending on the chemical composition of garnet, it can be divided into many types, the common types are rhodolite, ferroaluminum garnet, calcium-iron garnet, manganese-aluminum garnet, and the variants are tsavorite and cinnamon stone. The main type of garnet used in industry is iron-aluminum garnet. Its main component is a silicate mineral. It often appears dark red and brownish red under the sunlight. The best are those with a deep red color and a transparent body. Its main industrial uses are as follows:

(1) Sandblasting and rust removal for oil drilling platforms, ship hull structures, bridge structures, oil and gas pipelines, etc.


(2) Water jet cutting of metal, stone, glass, tile, precision parts, etc.


(3) Raw materials for sandpaper, gauze, grinding wheels and other items.


(4) Filling wear-resistant materials for aircraft runways, highway pavements, high-speed rail tracks, wear-resistant rubber, anti-skid paint, etc.


(5) Grinding of marble, optical lens, glassware, leather, jade and other materials.


(6) It is also widely used in the field of construction industry, high-grade stone painting, exterior wall decoration, interior decoration.

 

Now, let SEPPE Technology teach you how to identify high quality industrial garnet abrasives.

 

  •  The identification methods of high quality garnet abrasives

Now SEPPE Tech. will teach you how to identify high quality industry garnet abrasives.

(1) Look at the color. It is often dark red and brownish red under the sunlight. The redder the color and the better the luster, the better the quality of the garnet.


(2) After grinding with a harder object, observe whether the abrasive is broken.


(3) Pour the garnet sand in the water and stir it to see how fast it settles and the floating of impurities in the water. High quality garnet contains little dust and settles quickly due to its high specific gravity.
