Physical–Chemical Bases of a Glass Batch Preparation Technique
The paper is devoted to a complex study of the processes involved in the distribution of glass batch components during their preparation and mixing. The distribution of various particles of a glass batch in one- and two-component systems under periodic physical impact on the storage tanks has been studied using model systems. It has been established that soda particles are concentrated in the upper layers of the batch, while sand particles are accumulated at the bottom. The fixation effects of dolomite particles when moistened with water, soda and potash solutions have been investigated. It has been revealed that, in contrast with the distribution of dry dolomite powder particles of different sizes, segregation reduces due to the capillary and capillary-crystallization interaction of disperse particles as there appear liquid interlayers.
