Paper Title:
High Grade Purification of Sericite by Hydrocyclone and Magnetic Separation
  Abstract

Sericite has the intermediate nature of the muscovite and illite, which has been used as the additive of the cosmetics, the ceramic industry, welding rods, and other various pigments and the paint. In this study, the characteristics of sericite were examined using XRD(X-ray diffractometer), XRF(X-ray fluorescence spectrometer), TG-DTA(Thermal Analyzer), SEM(Scanning Electron Microscope) and PSA(Particle Size Analyzer). The raw ore is composed of 60.90wt% SiO2, 7.88wt% K2O, 0.36wt% TiO2, 24.80wt% Al2O3, 1.64wt% Fe2O3, 2.39wt% CaO, and 0.83wt% MgO. After sericite was purified, the content of SiO2 decreased from 60.9wt% to 51.4wt%, and in the crystal phase the intensity of quartz decreased significantly. For the high grade purification of sericite, the removal of iron and separation of quartz for the raw ore (sericite), the hydrocyclone were used with the magnetic separator. The content of iron was reduced from 1.64wt% to 0.91wt%.
