BENTONITE :- 

In India during 1960-61, while inspecting the dolomite and white clay mines at some part of South India, Rajasthan and Gujarat for the first time doubted some white clay or dolomitic chalk material as Barite and got the sample tested, on testing, properties of this doubted material turned out to be Bentonite clay. Considering the importance of this clay, the Directorate of Geology and Mining during field season in 1963-64, 1964-65 and 1969-70, took up a detailed survey work. After knowing constituents and structure of this clay, a detail study has been carried out by Directorate of the Petrography and Mineral Chemistry Laboratory on few samples from the area surveyed.

Bentonite is absorbent clay consisting mostly of the mineral montmorillonite. It is formed by the weathering of volcanic ash, most often in the presence of water. Chemically, it is an impure form of hydrated aluminum silicate. The formula of montmorillonite may be written as (Na,Ca)0.33(Al,Mg)2Si4O10(OH)2•(H2O)n. There are two types of Bentonite: sodium Bentonite, also called swelling Bentonite and calcium Bentonite, also called non-swelling Bentonite.


APPLICATIONS:-

Bentonite is useful for a wide range of applications such as sodium Bentonite is used in drilling mud for oil and gas wells, foundry, palletizing, piling, cosmetics, fertilizers, pesticides, sealing subsurface disposal systems and in preventing metal pollutants from entering groundwater. Wide use of Calcium Bentonite is in the field of Bleaching clay, pet litter, as an agent that cleanses the intestinal tract, therapeutic face packs. In addition, Bentonite is used in ceramic structures, pyrotechnics etc.
