About Dolomite

Dolomite, an anhydrous carbonate mineral, is made up of calcium magnesium carbonate. It is found as the primary component of the sedimentary rock. Dolomite is known for having double carbonates, that is, it has an alternating structural arrangement of calcium and magnesium ions. Dolomite can form crystals of white, gray or pink colour.

Chemical Formula:

  • CaMg(CO3)2

Synonyms:

  • 16389-88-1
  • Dolostone
  • Dolomite Rock

Molecular Weight:    

  • 184.4 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Construction materials
  • Glass and ceramics
  • Source of magnesia
  • Sintering agent
  • Soil conditioner and as a feed additive
  • Metallurgical flux

Production Process

  • Production of Dolomite (synthetic) via Grinding of Mineral Dolomite.

It can also be synthetically produced by grinding less impure mineral dolomite by mixing it with several chemical additives like silica, magnesium hydroxide, and others in order to react and integrate dolomite impurities. The resulting ground mixture is compacted to form briquettes, which is further sieved to eliminate fines by burning the briquettes at a temperature of 1,700 to 2,200° C. It is finally cooled and sieved thus, producing Dolomite (synthetic).
