Investigation of Industrial potential of Amechi Idodo Clay Deposit in Enugu State

The Clay deposits has been investigated for its industrial potentials.  The chemical analysis was determined using Atomic Absorption spectrophotometer (AAS).  The physical properties conducted such as linear shrinkage, apparent density, apparent porosity, bulk density, water absorption and modulus of rupture were conducted using standard technique.  The results on the chemical composition of the clay composed of Al2O3 (29.10%), SiO3 (53.04%), Na2O3 (2.15%), MgO (1.15%), Fe2O3 (1.7...

ENGINEERING CHARACTERIZATION OF OGBEKE CLAY DEPOSIT FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION

The engineering characterization of Ogbeke clay deposit has been investigated with a view of finding its usefulness in furnacerefractory production and home. The chemical composition analysis was carried out using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS).The physical properties tests such as shrinkage, porosity, water absorption, modulus of rupture, refractoriness, moisture content,plasticity, cold crushing strength, thermal shock resistance and particles size analysis were carried out using inte...
