Proprietà e indice tecnico della sabbia di cromite AFS 40-50

Chromite sand AFS 40-50 properties and technical Index

Chromite sand AFS 40-50 is a black casting sand with a semi metallic luster. It comes from chrome ore in nature. Chromite sand has a Mohs hardness of 5.5-6.5 and a specific gravity of 4.3-4.8g/cm3. Natural chromite ore is composed of two parts: spinel and gangue, which are usually associated. Spinel is Mg · FeO Al Cr2O3, gangue is serpentinite H4 Fe · Mg3 Si2O9 (hydrated silicon magnesium), and there are also small amounts of magnesium olivine, quartz, green pyroxene and other forms in chromite. The quartz (SiO2) in it is harmful to the chromium ore used in casting and needs to be removed through processing methods.
