As a manufacturer of quartz glass tubes, today I am going to talk to you about quartz sand.
Quartz sand is generally used in the traditional glass industry for the production of flat glass, float glass, glass products (glass jars, glass bottles, glass tubes, etc.), optical glass, glass fiber, glass equipment, conductive glass, glass cloth and anti-radiation. The main raw materials such as special glass. In particular, with the implementation of the policy intensity, the standardization of building management standards and the technological level of the glass industry will increase, and all kinds of glass will surely shine in the future buildings.
Quartz glass has a low coefficient of thermal expansion, high temperature resistance, good chemical stability, excellent electrical insulation, low and stable ultrasonic delay performance, good UV transmission performance, and visible light absorption and near infrared spectroscopy. Performance and has higher mechanical properties than ordinary glass. Quartz sand is an important raw material for quartz glass. With the increase in demand in the glass industry, quartz sand production has become a new profit highlight in this industry.
It is understood that for every ton of ordinary glass (soda glass) produced, it takes about 1.1 tons of various raw materials. It includes about 800 kg of quartz sand (silica), about 130 kg of soda ash (sodium carbonate) and about 130 kg of limestone (calcium carbonate). For each ton of potassium glass produced, it takes about 1.2 tons of various raw materials. It includes about 700 kg of quartz sand (silica), about 270 kg of potassium carbonate, and about 200 kg of limestone (calcium carbonate). According to this calculation, the annual consumption of quartz sand corresponding to the total output of China's daily-use glass industry is more than 20 million tons, and the annual consumption of calcium carbonate is more than 3.4 million tons.
