Gilsonite Application

Gilsonite application in oil well drilling

Gilsonite application in oil well drilling Gilsonite is used as an additive to drilling mud, and depending on the type of drilling, drilling depth, soil and density, as well as the pressure of the earth’s layers, the percentage of Gilsonite use in the drilling mud formula is different. Gilsonite is also used as FLC (fluid loss control) or fluid loss control in drilling mud, and by melting Gilsonite causes the heat of the drilling drill and also the drilling drill’s lubrication.

Gilsonite application in asphalt industry

Gilsonite application In asphalting, Gilsonite helps to increase the stability of asphalt and creates high adhesion between macadam and bitumen. This adhesion prevents the asphalt from cracking and also prevents plants from growing in the asphalt. One of the most important things they do in asphalting is to reduce the thickness of the asphalt and reduce the amount of bitumen consumed. Another action of Gilsonite occurs in asphalt in the summer is the soft temperature that does not loosen or soften when mixing with asphalt due to sun exposure and Heavy trucks do not roll or fold when braking.Most airports in the world prepare asphalt with the addition of Gilsonite. The most important reason is during the heating time, when the airplane wheels collide with the airport runway and the asphalt does not change shape in summer and winter.

Gilsonite application in Isogam

Gilsonite application in Isogam The most widely used in insulation is in the production of isogam. By mixing gilsonite, calcium carbonate, additives and bitumen with oil that increases the elasticity of isogam, it is produced that makes a composite and increases the heat resistance of isogam and creates a stable and homogeneous coating.

Gilsonite application in paint and ink

Gilsonite Application in paint and ink The printer ink is a combination of carbon black and bitumen, which with the help of Gilsonite, this combination becomes more sticky and its durability becomes much longer.A large amount of this precious material is used in the production of newspaper ink, which is also known as organic ink. One of the most important factors that can be used is Gilsonite low degree of softness and ash below 3% .The most important thing that Gilsonite does in the ink industry is to flow the material along with its stabilizer. Various types of ink can be made by combining with Gilsonite, the most famous of which are printer ink, newspaper ink, printing, lithography and offset ink, gravure, castell and flexographic ink. .

Gilsonite application in casting

Gilsonite application in casting ,Gilsonite additive in molding and casting sand acts as a resin and creates adhesion between sand and other materials. After filling the mold, this adhesion helps that the gas emitted from the sublimation of Gilsonite causes pressure on the poured material and it is easier. The mold should be separated from the cast material. At the same time, the surface of the mold remains very smooth.
Application of gilsonite in coke production Gilsonite contains 70-80% carbon based on elemental analysis, so when Gilsonite added to molten steel, Gilsonite creates a reducing environment and can be used alongside coking materials such as coal.Gilsonite is also possible to prepare coke from some of its types, which is often used in the sugar industry.

Gilsonite application in steel making

Gilsonite Application  in steel making ,Gilsonite is used as a composite-additive component in steel products, which is added to the system in limestone, magnesium lime, and calcium carbide, which Gilsonite causes the displacement of impurities such as sulfur, silica, and phosphorus from the molten steel and transfers them to the slag. 75% Gilsonite as a volatile material at 1900°F, when Gilsonite mixed with molten steel, transfers impurities to the slag.

Gilsonite granulation

Gilsonite granulation ,The granularity of Gilsonite is different depending on the type of use and Gilsonite starts from 10 mesh which is produced with a hammer mill and Gilsonite has the ability to produce up to 100 mesh, but from 100 mesh to 400 mesh with a wing mill or a combination of Indo with air breather and From 400 mesh to 600 mesh, Gilsonite can be softened and crushed with a jet mill.
