Silica sand

Silica sandSilica sand, also known as silica or quartz sand. Refractory particulates with quartz as the main mineral component and a particle diameter of 0.020mm-3.350mm are divided into artificial silica sand, washed sand, scrub sand, and selected (flotation) sand according to different mining and processing methods.


Another important use of silica sand is as a filter and filter for water treatment.

Silica sand is widely distributed and the price is cheap. The study of the adsorbent with silica sand as the main component provides a basis for solving the problem of water pollution.Therefore, using silica sand as a raw material to study its surface conditions, adsorption properties and other properties is of great significance in terms of treating water pollution and improving the environment.
