Expanded Shale Aggregate Production Process

NORLITE EXPANDED SHALE AGGREGATE Norlite is a manufactured lightweight, porous ceramic material produced by expanding and vitrifying select shale in a rotary kiln. The process produces a consistent and predictable high

Light expanded shale aggregate production line

Expanded shale and expanded slate is called shale lightweight aggregate, which is adopting shale and slate as raw material, after crushing and burning in rotary kiln to become the artificial lightweight aggregate. The character of shale lightweight aggregate is low water absorption and high strength. It could be used for structural concrete

Production — Stalite

Expanded slate aggregate is produced by the rotary kiln method. This discussion describes one specific lightweight aggregate manufacturing plant. Other rotary kiln process facilities are similar, but may have variations from the process described herein. The rotary kiln is a long tube that rotates on large bearings.

Expanded Shale (and Slate)

2007-7-17  Most of shale used for construction is used in the manufacture of bricks. Not all shale is suitable for brick, and even fewer deposits are suitable for expanded shale production. The shale must contain minerals (mostly carbonates) that will produce gas at the same temperature as the shale begins to sinter (soften prior to melting).

When clay, shale or slate is crushed and then exposed to high heat (3,600 0F) and cooked for a period of time, they expand like popcorn into a very hard rock that is very porous and light weight.

Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate an overview

Expanded clay, shale and slate. Bricks are produced by the drying and firing of clay or shale raw material, forming a sintered porous structure. Similarly, the drying and sintering of pelletised clay or shale can produce a usable aggregate, but more especially if the raw material is capable of being ‘bloated’.

Expanded Shale bigelowbrook

Expanded Shale is a lightweight aggregate that is an ideal growing media for hydroponic or aquaponic systems. The shale is mined, crushed and fired under high temperatures in a rotary kiln, producing a clean, inert, porous, and light material. Because of the large amount of cracks and fissures in the expanded shale, the media can retain a large
