Talal M. Al-Momani

Abstract


This study has concentrated on the Thermal Properties (Differential Thermal Analysis -DTA, Thermo-Gravimetry- TG, and Derivative Thermo-Gravimetry -DTG) and industrial evaluation of Hiswa Kaolin, South Jordan, with emphasis on the possible use of kaolin as a body former in tiles and sanitaryware, and as a filler and extender in paint industry.
The physical, chemical, mineralogical, technical and industrial characteristics of Hiswa clay deposit conform to the standard specifications. The industrial testing of Hiswa clay deposits indicates that it is suitable for being used as a body former in tiles and sanitary ware, and as a filler and extender in paint industry.
The results of thermal analysis curves of the original representative samples from Hiswa area, South Jordan, indicate the presence of moderately to well crystalline varieties of kaolin.
