Characterization of the Jordanian Feldspar Raw Materials for Application in the Ceramic and Glass Industries

Aljaradin, Mohammad LU and Amaireh, Mazen (2014) In International Journal of Mining Engineering and Mineral Processing 3(2). p.28-31
Abstract
n this study, Jordanian feldspar from Wadi Al-Jayshiah area was invested to evaluate its applicability as raw material for ceramic and industries. The chemical analysis indicated that the average Fe2O3 content is 2.33%, which is very high, compared to commercial ceramic and glass grades feldspar. The SiO2 content in the Wadi Al-Jayshiah feldspar (67.96%) lies within the required amount in commercial ceramic grade feldspar (75%) and the in commercial ceramic glass feldspar (68.9 %). On the other hand it was found that the contents of K2O and Na2O are 4.13 and 4.12, respectively, which makes it suitable for the ceramic industry. However for glass in industry a beneficiation pre-treatment step is required to increase the amount of Na2O.
