Our company built the first pilot Vermiculite Mine Enrichment Plant in Turkey, in Yıldızeli/Sivas Province. The facility consists of raw material feeding, conveying, drying, crushing, sorting and packing into big-bags.
The term vermiculite is used for defining a mineral group in which the material dilatates and takes the shape of a worm when heat-treated. This dilatation process is called exfoliation. The term vermiculite derives from the Latin Word “vermiculor” meaning wormy. Exfoliated vermiculite has a significant usage as soil regulator, light construction and heat insulation material due its low density and insulation characteristic. Exfoliated vermiculite is used as an absorbent in some chemical processes due to its wide reactive chemical surface. It is also used as an additive in paints, plastics and other materials when vermiculite is grinded down to fine-grain.
