Pyrophyllite offers an energy saving and yield increasing alternative to the use of Kaolin and Sand in the production of E-Glass.
“The conclusion is reached that the use of pyrophyllite in E-Glass batch without the addition of sand can increase glass yield by about 12% and reduce energy consumption during the batch melting by 1,550 kJ/kg-glass as compared to E-Glass batch using kaolinite and sand.” Taken from the Technical Paper: Pyrophyllite for E-Glass
This represents a significant cost savings and performance improvement over traditional methods.
With the ability to provide the North American and European marketplace with water shipments, Trinity Resources is able to bring forward a cost effective supply for this industry sector.
