Aqua-garfine / Fine garnet, Almandite

according to EN 12910
QMS-No. GBT61111

General

Aqua-garfine is a naturally occurring mineral with uniform physical, chemical, hardness and microstructure characteristics, which provide the essential pro­per­ties for a wide variety of industrial uses.

Aqua-garfine is the compositional variety known as almandite. There are no free elements; all oxides are combined chemically as an iron-rich alumino­silicate, which has the formula: Fe3Al2(SiO4)3.

Aqua-garfine or GMA GarnetTM is produced at a modern plant in Western Australia by the GMA Garnet Group, a leading producer of industrial Garnet. It is processed to provide a consistent clean product free of organic matter, dust and superfines.

Applications:

       Seeding material

         for upstream crystallisation softening process. Because of its high density and very uniform, narrow grading it

  • allows a much lower reactor height and
  • guarantees a minimum to none carry over.
