Applications of KM Bentonite

KM Betonies is economical. Due to its higher bond strength is requirement quantitatively is considerable less then that of other Betonies, thus not only saving money but eliminating expensive storage and handling charges. When foundry men prefer to use more than one type of bonding in the blend, the use of KM Betonies is a great advantage as other place blend well with it again as due to its high durability, a minimum quantity only will be required for rebounding.

Agricultural

Small amounts of KM'S FEED GRADE BENTONITE based in these operations promote integrity of the cubes and pellets and, when eaten, slows the digestive movement allowing ruminants to absorb additional amounts of important nutrients form fodder consumed.

Iron Ore

Much of the world's supply of iron ore is produced from a hard rock called taconite, which is ground to a very fine powder to produce iron ore concentrate. KM's IOP GRADE BENTONITE is added to the iron ore concentrate to act as a binder, facilitating the formation of iron ore pellets. The pellets are then fed to the blast furance for steel making.

Construction

INDOGEL is also used in the slurry french method for constructing in-place structural concrete walls and foundation where its excellent viscosity and fluid control characteristics help to ensure french dimensional uniformity and verticality properties which are critical in structural applications. indogel also facilitates the use of low solids slurry systems which help to ensure the accuracy of placement and strength which help to ensure the accuracy of placement and strength of the concrete which is injected into the trench.


API & O.C.M.A SPECIFICATIONS (OIL COMPANIES MATERIAL ASSOCIATION)

For drilling Mud and pile foundation, KM under Brand name INDOGEL processes Bentonite which has excellent gelling properties providing consistent quality conforming to O C M A specification. Its higher yield values and lower filtration loss cause reduction in its consumption to a very appreciable extent. It is an excellent suspending agent and a hole sealer.
