Apatite is a group of phosphate minerals, usually referring to hydroxylapatite, fluorapatite, chlorapatite and bromapatite, named for high concentrations of OH−, F−, Cl− or Br− ions, respectively, in the crystal.
what is Apatite Stone?
Apatite is one of a few minerals that are produced and used by biological micro-environmental systems.
Apatite stone is the defining mineral for 5 on the Mohs scale.
Hydroxyapatite, also known as hydroxylapatite, is the major component of tooth enamel and bone mineral.
A relatively rare form of apatite in which most of the OH groups are absent and containing many carbonate and acid phosphate substitutions is a large component of bone material.
Apatite Stone Crusher
Usually the dimensions reduction by crushing is of minimal value aside from the best size of the product going to grinding. This means that the amount of apatite crushing levels could be decreased depending on the feed dimensions accepted by main grinding stage. All apatite stone crushers possess a minimal reduction ratio meaning that dimensions reduction will take place in levels. The number of phases is guided by the size the feed and the requested products. Knowing the quantity of crushing phases we can now start to choose the proper crusher for every reduction stage. Depending on running circumstances, feed measurement, capability, hardness and so on, there are always some alternatives.
Primary Apatite Crusher
For gentle feed (under Mohs5) a horizontal Impactor (VSI) is normally the first alternative if capability is not excessive. For more challenging feed there’s a option from a gyratory or a jaw crusher.
Apatite Secondary Crusher
Inside a Apatite rock crushing circuit, the 2nd stage generally begins to be of significance for charge of size and shape. Because of this the jaw crusher, in most cases, is disqualified as secondary crusher. Rather the cone crusher can be used more usually. Also in comminution (crushing and grinding) circuits for ore and minerals the cone crusher is frequently utilized since the secondary stage.
Final Apatite Stone Crushing Plant
The ultimate sizing and shaping will take devote this stage influencing the value of the final merchandise. For difficult rock circuits you will find only two choices, cone crushers or Vertical Shaft Impactors (VSI).
Rock Phosphate Equipment
Apatite Rock Phosphate is occasionally found to contain significant amounts of rare earth elements and can be used as an ore for those metals. This is preferable to traditional rare earth ores, as apatite is non-radioactive and does not pose an environmental hazard in mine tailings. During digestion of apatite with sulfuric acid to make phosphoric acid, hydrogen fluoride is produced as a byproduct from any fluorapatite content. This byproduct is a minor industrial source of hydrofluoric acid. Fluoro-chloro apatite rock phosphate forms the basis of the now obsolete Halophosphor fluorescent tube phosphor system. Dopant elements of manganese and antimony, at less than one mole-percent, in place of the calcium and phosphorus impart the fluorescence, and adjustment of the fluorine to chlorine ratio adjusts the shade of white produced. Now almost entirely replaced by the Tri-Phosphor system.
