What is Bentonite Cat Litter
 Bentonite (Bentonite) is a montmorillonite-based water-bearing clay ore. The chemical composition of montmorillonite is: (Al2, Mg3) Si4O10 OH2 ยท nH2O, because it has a special nature. Such as swelling properties, cohesiveness, adsorption, catalysis, thixotropy, suspension, and cation exchange. So it is widely used in various industrial fields.

The type of interlayer cation of Bentonite Cat Litter determines the type of Bentonite Cat Litter, the inter-layer cation is Na + called sodium Bentonite Cat Litter; interlayer cation Ca2 + called calcium Bentonite Cat Litter; interlayer cation is H + hydrogen Bentonite Cat Litter (activated clay, natural bleach - acid clay); interlayer cation for the organic cation called organic Bentonite Cat Litter.
Active clay
Activated clay is made of clay (mainly Bentonite Cat Litter) as raw material, the inorganic acid treatment, and then rinsed by water, dry made of adsorbent, the appearance of milky white powder, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, strong adsorption performance, Can absorb colored material, organic matter. Easy to absorb moisture in the air, placed too long will reduce the adsorption performance. However, heating to more than 300 degrees Celsius began to lose crystal water, so that the structure changes, affecting the fading effect. Activated clay is insoluble in water, organic solvents and various oils, almost completely soluble in hot caustic soda and hydrochloric acid, the relative density of 2.3 to 2.5, in the water and oil swelling is minimal.
Natural bleaching earth - acid clay
That is, natural output itself has bleaching performance of clay, is montmorillonite, albite, quartz as the main component of white, white gray clay, is a kind of Bentonite Cat Litter.
Mainly after the decomposition of vitreous volcanic rock products, it does not swell after water, the pH value of the suspension is weak acidity and alkaline Bentonite Cat Litters; the bleaching performance is worse than the activated clay. Colors are generally light yellow, green and white, gray, red, brown, milk white, pink, blue and so on. Pure white little. Density 2.7-2.9 g / cm. The apparent density is often low due to the porosity. Chemical composition and ordinary clay almost, the main chemical composition is aluminum oxide, silica, water and a small amount of iron, magnesium, calcium and so on. No plasticity, a higher adsorption. Due to a large number of containing silicic acid, the elixis were acidic. Water is easy to crack, water content is very large. The fineness of the general fineness is higher.
In the exploration stage of quality evaluation, the need to determine the bleaching performance, acidity, filtration performance, oil absorption and other items [5]
Organic Bentonite Cat Litter
Organic Bentonite Cat Litter is an inorganic mineral / organic ammonium complex, with Bentonite Cat Litter as raw material, the use of Bentonite Cat Litter montmorillonite lamellar structure and its ability to swell in water or organic solvent dispersed into colloidal grade stick Particle characteristics, through the ion exchange technology inserted into the organic coating agent made of. Organic Bentonite Cat Litter in all kinds of organic solvents, oils, liquid resin can form a gel, with good thickening, thixotropy, suspension stability, high temperature stability, lubricity, film, water resistance and chemical Stability, in the paint industry has important application value. In the paint ink, aviation, metallurgy, chemical fiber, oil and other industries are also widely used.
Bentonite Cat Litter
Bentonite Cat Litter is a multi-purpose mineral, its quality and application areas mainly depends on the montmorillonite content and the type of properties and its crystal chemical properties. Therefore, its development and utilization must vary according to the mine, depending on the role of different. Such as the production of activated clay, calcium-based sodium, for drilling drilling with oil drilling, instead of starch for spinning, printing and dyeing of the slurry, building materials with interior and exterior paint, the preparation of organic Bentonite Cat Litter, Bentonite Cat Litter 4A zeolite, the production of white carbon black and so on.
Calcium and sodium base differences
The type of interlayer cation of Bentonite Cat Litter determines the type of Bentonite Cat Litter, the interlayer cation is Na + when called sodium Bentonite Cat Litter; interlayer cation Ca + is called calcium Bentonite Cat Litter. Sodium montmorillonite (or sodium Bentonite Cat Litter) is better than calcium. However, the distribution of calcareous soil in the world is much wider than that of sodium soil. Therefore, in addition to strengthening the search for sodium soil, it is necessary to modify the calcareous soil, making it a sodium soil.
