What is Calcium Carbonate Lump?
Clumps are rocks extracted from carcasses that are usually caused by the explosion of a block of ore and then homogenized by a hammer or pickaxe. Calcium carbonate lumps are found all over the world. The most common natural forms are gypsum, limestone, and marble, which are produced by the deposition of small fossilized snail shells, oysters, and coral over millions of years. Although all three shapes are chemically identical, they differ in other aspects such as purity, whiteness, thickness, and uniformity. Calcium carbonate is one of the most useful and versatile substances known to humans.
Many of us are first introduced to calcium carbonate in the classroom, where we use blackboard chalk. Chalk has been used as a writing tool for over 10,000 years and is a fine microcrystalline material. As a limestone, calcium carbonate is a biogenic rock and is more compacted than gypsum. As a marble, calcium carbonate is a coarse, crystalline rock, a metamorphism that forms when gypsum or limestone is recreated under conditions of high temperature and pressure. Large marble deposits are found in North America and Europe. In Carrara, Italy, for example, the statuario mine is made of pure white, from which Michelangelo made his sculptures.

Calcium carbonate agglomerate is obtained by mining and used for industrial purposes. Pure calcium carbonate can be produced from marble, or it can be prepared by transferring carbon dioxide to calcium hydroxide solution. In the other case, calcium carbonate is made from a mixture of the two and forms a product called “precipitated calcium carbonate” or PCC. PCC has a very fine and controlled particle size, but with a custom size of 2 microns in diameter, it is especially useful in industrial production. The main type of industrial product is “mineral calcium carbonate” or GCC. GCC, as its name implies, is the result of crushing and processing limestone to create a powder-like form with other sizes and properties for many different industrial and pharmaceutical applications.
Studying the history of calcium carbonate lumps gives us important lessons about the history of the earth, as the origins of gypsum, limestone and marble go back to shallow water. Thus, the observation that large amounts of gypsum reserves of the same age are found on many continents led to a period in which shallow water levels existed worldwide and crustaceans in this Periods have grown. Some see this as proof of the flood of the Bible. Nature has the advantage that calcium carbonate solutions provide the nutrients needed for the growth of the protective shells and skeletons of living things through their nutrition. Eggs, for example, are made up of about 95% calcium carbonate.
Calcium carbonate creates a unique reaction with acids. Calcium carbonate produces carbon dioxide when it comes in contact with acid – no matter how strong it is. This provides a reliable test for geologists to identify calcium carbonate. This phenomenon is important for the formation of caves. Acid rainwater goes underground where the limestone dissolves calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate water lowers and eventually reaches an air-filled cavity in which carbon dioxide is released. When released, calcium carbonate recrystallizes. Stalactite and stalagmite formations form when water contains calcium carbonate, so there is always some mineral at the source of the water dripping behind the cave. This process is very long and often takes thousands of years. As much as calcium carbonate may be interesting in nature, its impact and value on our daily lives is truly amazing.
Sales of calcium carbonate for paper, plastics, paints and coatings
Calcium carbonate is the most widely used mineral in the paper, plastic, paint, and coating industries, and is used both as a filler and as a coating pigment due to its special white color. In the paper industry, due to its high luminosity and light scattering properties, it is of great value worldwide and is used as an inexpensive filler for the production of opaque and clear papers.
Calcium carbonate is used as a filler in paper wetting machines, and the calcium carbonate filler makes the paper clear and smooth. As a developer, calcium carbonate can be as much as 30% by weight in paints. Calcium carbonate is also widely used as a filler in adhesives and sealants.
Personal hygiene and food production
Calcium carbonate is used as a dietary calcium supplement, antacid, phosphate or main ingredient for medicinal tablets. It is also found on many grocery store shelves in products such as baking powder, toothpaste, dessert mixes, dry mixes and pastries. Calcium carbonate is an active ingredient in agricultural lime and is used in animal feed. They also benefit from calcium carbonate for water treatment and wastewater to improve the environment.
Building materials and construction
Calcium carbonate agglomerate is very important for the construction industry as a building material of its kind (eg marble) as well as a cementitious material. This material is involved in the manufacture of mortar used in building bricks, concrete blocks, artificial stone, roofs, rubber compounds and tiles. Calcium carbonate is an important material in the manufacture of steel, glass and paper by forming carbon dioxide and lime. Calcium carbonate is used in industrial environments to neutralize acidic conditions in soil and water due to its antacid properties.
Calcium carbonate crystals are called calcite. Calcite crystal is generally considered a rhombron due to its slit properties. The gap is what causes the crystals to weaken where the bonding forces are weak. Calcite is unique in that its rift has three distinct directions. There are more than 300 forms of calcite crystals. Calcite crystals are also available in a variety of colors, but are usually white or clear. Another important feature of calcite crystal is its double refraction property. Double refraction occurs when a beam of light passes through a lens-like lens and splits into two different beams, one moving slowly and the other moving fast. Two different lights bend at two different angles of refraction. As a result of this feature, a person looking through a calcite lens sees two images. This dual refraction property is a valuable feature for many optical and video applications.
As mentioned, calcium carbonate lump has many uses. The quality of calcium carbonate lumps is equal to the quality of its ore. Calcium carbonate lump mines in Aligudarz are the best type of calcium carbonate ore with a purity of over 98%, providing guaranteed and excellent quality to the customer. Many industries of calcium carbonate powder production, calcium carbonate granulation industries are fed from these special and high quality mines and the main role of these mines in this important industry is very obvious and famous.
SefidDaneh Calcium Carbonate Production Company, with its high quality mines, is continuously extracting and producing calcium carbonate lumps with excellent quality. You can contact us to ensure the quality of the extracted lumps of Sefid Daneh Aligudarz Company and, if necessary, read the analysis of the extracted lumps. Even if necessary, you can coordinate with Aligudarz white calcium carbonate mines and factories to visit the mines and factories by contacting the collection.
