Olivine Sand is an ideal mineral to use for the production of ManganeseSteel Castings as it is chemically less reactive than silica sand. SiO2 reactswith MnO in the steel to form a MnSiO3 slag resulting in serious burn ondefects. A further advantage is that Olivine Sand has a low thermal expansionr...
Olivine sandis one of the most widely used Refractory Mineral. Its low free-silica content and strong resistance to metal attack along with the refractory properties caused that Olivine Sand to be used as Eccentric Bottom Taphole (EBT) Filler in Electric Arc Furnace (EAF), popularly known as EBT Fi...
Olivine Sandis a Magnesium Iron Silicate mineral produced from volcanic rocks. The nameolivine is given to members of the fosterite - fayalite solid-solution series. It is a ecnomicalsource of MgO, with good insulating properties, high resistance to alkalineoxides that make it excellent for use in ...
