Olivine for the Steel Industry and foundries
EBT filler sand: produced from selected mineral olivine, a refractory mineral with high percentage of fosterite content and high refractoriness. As a result of long experience and cooperation with the steel making industry, Thermolith offers optimised grain size distributions that guarantee free and easy opening of the EBT in Electric Arc Furnaces. Standard production of EBT filler sand is 1-6mm, 2-5mm, 2-6mm and 3-8mm, etc.
Slag conditioner: In electric arc furnace (EAF) applications, olivine when introduced as a slag conditioner promotes the development of excellent artificial foamy slag and successfully balances viscosity and volume for efficient sulphur removal and electrode protection. Olivine is more consistent in quality and aggregate size than calcinated materials and shows uniform dissolution during a heat. Standard production of Thermo slag conditioner is 10-40mm.
Foundry sand: olivine is used as foundry sand as a higly performant media for moulding. It replaces silica sand for improved health and safety conditions for the workers.
